According to Mother Nature Network, two state legislators in Hawaii are proposing protections for sharks. The legislation would make it a misdemeanor to knowingly harm or kill any shark in state marine waters. The legislation would also extend these protections to all ray species. Currently, only manta rays have similar protections. Penalties for a first offense would be $500, and the fine would go up to $10,000 for a third. Sharks play a crucial role in the marine ecosystem by keeping other fish populations in check.
