Tiger sharks will never be in danger of depletion, nor worse, under current fishing methods worldwide. They mature very quick as far as sharks go, and the females are always much larger than the males, and probably mate with several males like many shark species during breeding season that helps genetic diversity, and have scores of pups each pregnancy, and frequently every few years, plus the pups are eating machines upon birth. They can dive very deep in the ocean as seen on film from ROV’s, plus hang out near the inshore reefs/beaches & are known in the early literature of the 20th century as “bank loafers” and love eating sea turtles of all sizes, and marine mammals of many sorts, plus sea birds. A keg of nails, a roll of tar paper and humans not normally consumed, but were found in some Tiger shark stomachs across history. Off Florida in the 1980’s one of the shark fishing boats from my back yard caught a big Tiger and it had a pair of feet still in the shoes from a police officer as we later learned who was fishing offshore with 3 other policemen in a private boat, and they all disappeared.

The facts of science are ignored as needed to send the emotional concern of “Extinction” to the heart and/or brains of those folks targeted by the “do-gooder type folks” in my humble opinion with an obvious agenda of protecting all animals from all humans. Some folks like myself dig deeper and can get past the sound bites/bytes of misinformation campaign with the NGO preservationists entrenched around the world for quite a while now. I am trying to stick to the facts as much as I can convey publicly the realty of the past, present and perhaps even the future.

Wildlife Conservation Society

In 1906, the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) put an African man on display in Bronx Zoo’s Monkey House. In 1918, one of WCS’s founding fathers, Madison Grant, published Passing of the Great Race, which Adolf Hitler referred to as his ‘Bible’. Another leading creator and early leader of WCS, Henry Fairfield Osborn Sr, was also a founder of the American Eugenics Society. His son headed WCS from 1940 to 1968, overseeing a series of major initiatives in Africa. There, WCS became one of the architects of the prohibition movement, which put wildlife for consumptive use and vast regions of land out of bounds to humanity. In 2020, WCS distanced itself in public from the racist views of Grant and Henry Fairfield Osborn Sr. But it has yet to issue a critical account of the legacy of Fairfield Osborn Jr, even though he led WCS into the modern era while sharing similar politically-inspired ecological goals to his father and Grant. WCS devotes considerable financial resources to influencing outcomes at CITES. WCS’s CEO reportedly earns USD$1,320,978.
