The Cebu provincial government will host the first Shark Summit on August 14 to 15 to help create awareness and educate the public on endangered shark species. Vince Cinches, oceans campaigner of Greenpeace Southeast Asia, said the summit will be held in time for the worldwide celebration of Shark Week. Cinches said they chose Cebu as the venue of the first Shark Summit because the province has been leading conservation efforts and apprehension of those who continue to catch endangered shark species. “If sharks, being an active predator, will be gone, the food chain will be affected. There is going to be a crisis in terms of fisheries production in Cebu, in terms of tourism, and others,” Cinches said.
