I figured as a shark lover and protector I had a duty to investigate the newly released film The Meg. I admit that I entered the movie with high expectations that it might not conform to the typical negative portrayal of sharks, but even acknowledging this, I was highly disappointed. The shark shown in the movie not only conformed to the negative stereotypes of sharks, but it further instilled a fear of sharks in the general public. In reality sharks are less of a danger than many things that are not feared (2nd pic). The false perception of sharks furthers detrimental human behavior, such as finning, which ultimately has led to them becoming endangered. If you watched this movie please disregard the message entirely and begin spreading shark love!! We need to save sharks not fear them. They are endangered and need our help!
