In Belize, Central America, researchers have discovered a new kind of shark. It’s the head in particular that raises questions.
According to the WWF, this particular hammerhead shark lives in the sea off the coast of Belize, Central America. It’s one of the 1400 counted animal species in the region.
This new discovery proves that there are special conditions in this part of the ocean. The WWF has called for protection of the biodiversity. Diverse measures are in place to protect the various species who live in this part of the ocean. Drilling works have been prohibited in this area since 2016. However, according to the WWF, protecting these species is a battle that is still to be continued.
