Sharks are being killed to the tune of over 100 million a year.

At this rate, it is feared that sharks will be eliminated by mankind.

But the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California is trying to do something about this destruction. Its animal husbandry team has artificially inseminated its zebra sharks at the aquarium and its newborn will soon be unveiled to the public.

Zebra sharks are considered vulnerable to extinction. Its biologists are working on their side, pushing the envelope of knowledge on impregnating female sharks held in captivity, to help stave off possible extinction.
