January Jones is a man woman when it comes to protecting sharks!
Earlier today, the blonde actress took some time out of her busy being pregnant schedule to write contribute an article to the Huffington Post:
This week, more than 30 million Americans will tune in to watch Discovery Channel's Shark Week. It's easy to understand why: Sharks are some of the most amazing, powerful animals in the world. But as you sit transfixed by high-definition images of sharks, keep in mind that sharks aren't the scariest predators in the oceans. Humans are.
Tens of millions of sharks are fished from the ocean every year, mainly for their fins. As a result, some shark populations are crashing, which has devastating consequences for ocean ecosystems.
If you think watching a shark on TV is cool, try looking one in the eye. Over the past few years I've dived with Caribbean reef sharks in the Bahamas, and more recently with whale sharks in Belize, filming public service announcements with Oceana. I'd love to continue diving with sharks — but at the rate we're going, Shark Week could become the only way to see these beautiful predators.
In 2009, January joined Oceana's shark campaign. Watch her video HERE!
