Aussie mission to save sharks

Alarmed conservationists eye new monitoring system, as 30-70 million sharks are killed every year.

    Environmentalists in Australia are on a mission to help save sharks from being attacked by human beings.

    The number of people attacked or killed by sharks worldwide is miniscule compared with 30-70 million sharks killed by people every year.

    Conservationists say that puting in place a new monitoring system can help to save both the sharks and the people.
