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.

Franz Weber Foundation

From 1990 until 2015, Franz Weber Foundation (FFW) managed the Fazao-Malfakassa National Park in Togo, which was, according to an in-depth investigation by Duke University, ‘established by forcing the local communities off their land and without taking into consideration their point of view’. That same study cited convincing evidence from reports published in 1990, confirming that competition for land use was already ‘creating conflict between the local communities and park managers’. In 2015 Togo refused to renew FFW’s contract because, the report says, ‘local communities were still excluded from the management of the natural resources of their land’ and FFW had ‘failed to fulfil its contract’. Franz Weber Foundation plays a major role within CITES because it funds and manages from Switzerland the African Elephant Coalition (AEC), which represents 32 African range states, some of which have barely any elephants and others none at all. Contrary to the wishes of the range states in Southern Africa, which manage most of the world’s wild elephant populations, the AEC at CITES’ CoPs repeatedly tables proposals to put all of the world’s elephants in appendix I. And the AEC uses its voting power to keep in place prohibitions on ivory sales and all other trade in elephant-related derivatives, including skins and hair, which Southern African nations wish to legalise.
