    Scientists in Thailand have been breeding and releasing baby bamboo sharks to help the endangered species survive. They are one of the smallest and least dangerous species of sharks native to the Gulf of Thailand, but bamboo sharks have become endangered because of their popularity among collectors and exotic diners. Researchers hope to increase the population of bamboo sharks and remove the species from the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s “Near Threatened” list.
