This video is about shark finning and the impact on the ocean's ecosystem. Millions of sharks are being caught illegally just to cut off their fins and then are dumped back into the ocean where they drown. As demands for shark fin soup rises, so does the number of sharks killed. Finning sharks in international water is legal, however, even in the places it's illegal, no one is trying to really stop this. This video is well blended and very informative, talking about things I didn't realize was a problem. I rate this video 10 out of 10. The appeal to pathos throughout the entire video really creates a sense of urgency and desire to help. This is a great video and I highly recommend it to anyone who hasn't heard or doesn't know much about shark finning.
