Watch as a fisherman's hook snares in a baby great white shark onto California's Venice Beach. The unnamed fisherman and surfers who risked razor sharp teeth to unhook and set the little shark free get Awesome People Points for their brave deed. Just about every species of shark in the entire world is currently endangered due to overfishing so every shark's life is vitally important to protect. That little great white shark represents a lot of biological investment by the great white species and it's continued existence will make it that much more likely that they species will forever be around.
