South Korea
Because the black color and the animals white image can fit well

Sharks are often portrayed as our enemies, getting little sympathy from people, but a necessary and beautiful part of our ecosystem.

While many people are willing to help charismatic megafauna, they overlook "scary" animals like sharks, and especially less charismatic animals like microorganisms, which merit as much or more attention.
Mexico
Because I like hammer sharks and water.
Connecticut,

Because sharks rock!

Hammerheads are being overfished and the fish they feed on have been depleted

My image best represents a vanishing world (portrait) because they are used for nothing but their fins. What is the world that we live in so violent? They deserve to be treated better with equality. They may be brutes, but can be friendly if you look more closely.

The movement of the hammerhead shark combined with the peaceful and graceful lighting conveys a feeling of loneliness, the animal appears clam but is also signaling a retreat as it turns to swim back into the depths.
United Kingdom
Shark finning, the real problem now is that its already too late to save these amazing creatures.
Mississippi,
United States
Because sharks are the best!
Oklahoma,

Hammerheads are endangered primarily by human hunting and carelessness

This is something we have the power to change. People cause this.

Sharks are often viewed as bad or evil. They are neither. They are critical to a healthy ocean ecosystem. Man's greed and stupidity will be the ultimate demise of a great predator.
Louisiana,

Hammerheads have been around a long time. Much more awesome than a cockroach don't you think?
United States
They are vanishing because of specific human behavior that can easily be altered.
United States
Hammerheads have declined 90% or more in big portions of their ranges - including along the east coast of North America. They are the poster child of bad management in a declining world.

Rare beauty and power. Hail to the shark!

Haven't seen the hammerhead in the forefront for a species. Now threatened by something/things so avoidable but typical of human kind

Our world is melting away. We may not notice it at first, but a little time can make a big difference. Especially to the great creatures living in the water, their world is disappearing. Photos like this are the reason we know what they look like, how much their species are disappearing, and how beautiful they are so we can prevent excuisive creatures like the Hammerhead shark from vanishing right in front of our eyes.
United States
This archaic species looks like no other surviving modern creature.
