By Michael McPherson, BBC Sport Baby sharks are popular in the UK, but the popularity of the species is also linked to the threat of its extinction.
We’re not going to get back the baby sharks, but we’ll make sure we get back some of these big cats and the impact they have on the marine ecosystem, the UK government has said.
So far, the Government has protected at least two baby sharks.
The first was the great white, which was found dead in 2010 in the Irish Sea.
The Government is trying to reintroduce the baby tiger shark, but there are concerns it might be too aggressive and may be unable to survive.
The second was the baby blacktip, a rare and endangered species found in the eastern Atlantic Ocean.
Its population has fallen by 50% in the past decade, with only around 100 left.
It was first caught by fishermen in the early 1900s.
They released it into the ocean and it died.
Now, conservationists are hoping that a baby blacktail shark will be released in a more favourable environment.
They hope to release it into a lagoon off the coast of Wales, and that it will breed in captivity.
That’s why the UK Government is encouraging people to send in a baby shark.
The government says a baby tiger sharks release will help ensure that the species remains on the endangered list.
The baby shark is one of four known to have survived the extinction of its native South American cousin, the tiger shark.
Both species were introduced to the UK by the Portuguese in the 19th century.
They were found in British waters by fishermen as far back as 1887.
They’ve been recorded in the wild in the US, Australia and New Zealand, but have been hunted down by scientists in recent years.
The UK government says the baby shark release is part of the UK’s “newest conservation strategy” to protect the species.
It says the release will also provide “an opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of protecting the shark populations and the conservation of its habitat”.
The Government says the shark population is estimated at about 2,000,000 worldwide.
The country has one of the world’s largest tiger populations, with more than 1,000 species in its waters.
The shark population has been declining for decades, partly because of the introduction of chemicals in the 1970s and 1980s.
However, the government says that the UK has a chance to reverse the decline, and says the reintroduction of the baby will help to restore a balance in the shark’s numbers.
The release is being promoted as part of a series of government-funded shark conservation projects.
It is also part of an ongoing programme to reintroduct the great whites, a species that is listed as endangered and which was thought extinct for more than a century.
The Great Whites were introduced in the 1960s to help boost their numbers and diversify the species, but they have been largely unsuccessful in their attempts to survive in the ocean.
