In this clip Rodney Fox touches on the importance of sharks, why the ecosystem needs them, and why killing them locally doesn't solve a local "safety issue". The role of sharks in maintaining a healthy ecosystem really shouldn't be such a revelation to us; it exists in all systems of nature. However, it doesn't apply to humans. We've removed ourselves from the food chain and are so disconnected from nature that the concept of a healthy population being maintained through "necessary death" is somewhat foreign to many of us. Ironically, "thinning of the herds" no longer exists for the one animal that needs it the most; man.
