The Defense Advance Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is funding a research project which involves implanting electrodes in sharks' brains - for the purpose of using these animals as underwater spies.

A neural probe has been developed that would decode the sharks' brain signals and give "researchers" a means to remotely manipulate the sharks.  By exploiting the sharks' natural ability to sense electrical gradients and chemical trails, the Pentagon would use the sharks to target or follow sea vessels.

More than 100 million sharks are killed each year for sport, food, so-called medicine, research and souvenirs.  At a rate faster than sharks can reproduce.  If too many sharks in one area are killed, the shark population may never return to normal levels.

The depletion of sharks from the world's oceans will lead to an unhealthy increase or rapid decline of other species.

Please help prevent further exploitation of these majestic animals.  By signing this petition, you will also send a message to other research groups that are currently developing implants to monitor and control other animals.

 =================================


Not only is this in itself immoral; when this is implemented, then BOTH SIDES WILL BE KILLING NEARBY ANIMALS, on the CHANCE that they might actually be "enemy combatants"!!!! THIS COULD LEAD TO MASS KILLINGS OF ANIMALS SUCH AS SHARKS AND DOLPHINS BY THE MILITARY OF ALL SIDES IN COMBAT, in order to "protect our soldiers"!!!!!! The animals, of course, did not "VOLUNTEER" for the job of spying for the military.

The military of both or all sides will THEN say, well, we have to kill mere ANIMALS in order to save our HUMAN soldiers and civilians! Do you see where this "logic" goes??? It may be found "necessary" to make dolphins, sharks, and other animals used by the military, EXTINCT, in order to "protect" human life in war!!!!!!!!!!!!!
