The original photograph is awesome, to say the least — showing the sheer power and beauty of these aquatic marvels. But when it comes to sharks, the importance of a proper perspective is crucial in another sense.
Unfortunately, sensationalized depictions in popular culture have given rise to negative stereotypes that sharks are creatures to be feared and demonized, when, in fact, the opposite is true: They are well-worth saving.
As the World Wildlife Fund points out, sharks play an essential role in keeping ocean ecosystems in balance, and are far less dangerous to humans than most people even realize.
(Oh, and sometimes they can actually be quite cute.)
