This November, sharks and much, much more...

Beginning next month, the Shark Task Force will bring you a series of stories and interviews about the conservation of marine life.

You'll meet scientists and environmentalists working to protect the oceans around us.

Our focus will always be sharks - but we'll also examine the waters they call home.

Special thanks to Jim Abernethy's Scuba Adventures, Wyland, Shark Savers and the other people helping make a difference.

We'd also like to thank you, our audience - and everything you're doing as well.

The Shark Task Force joins forces with Jim Abernethy's Scuba Adventures in a series of special reports to help preserve sharks.

We begin with the Lemon Shark.

Florida fisherman may target Lemon Sharks this season, putting the lemons at risk. To help protect the shark, the state of Florida is considering putting the Lemon Shark on the prohibited species list. If you're interested in supporting a ban on Lemon Shark fishing - please consider putting your name on the petition:
