Hammerhead Shark Lands on Endangered List

Not exactly something to celebrate, the scalloped hammerhead shark will be added to the "globally endangered" species list this year.

Some 233 shark species are currently on the red list, with nine more to be added, including the hammerhead. Over-fishing and shark finning are two reasons these fish are in trouble.

Luckily (and you guessed it!) Oceana is working to reverse the dismal trend. Find out how HERE.
