Shark conservationists have attacked actor Blake Lively for her role in the upcoming Hollywood flick, The Shallows. The 28-year-old portrays a surfer fighting for her life after being attacked by a great white shark in the upcoming horror-thriller. Valerie Faye, the writer of a new online petition, believes the film poses a great danger for the sea creatures, reported CNN.

Her petition, which has already garnered over 21,000 signatures, reads, “In reality, we pose a greater danger to sharks than they do to us. Blake Lively is responsible for perpetuating the false belief that sharks should be hunted and not helped. According to National Geographic, for every human killed by a shark, humans kill approximately two million sharks!”
