whale shark and winghead closer to extinction

鯨鯊及翼頭鯊受人類捕魚問題的威脅,最近被列入瀕危物種名單。鯨鯊除了被非法販賣,也常被誤捕或被漁船的螺旋槳殺害,翼頭鯊亦因頭的形狀常被困魚網引致大量死傷。
whale sharks and winghead sharks are closer to extinction because of human fishing, and recently the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) added them to the endangered species list. beside being threatened by the illegal trading, whale sharks are often killed by ship propellers or being fished out as by-catch. winghead sharks are often caught and killed because they get entangled in fishing nets due to their head shape.
