According to International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)'s Red list, the scalloped hammerheads have been classified as "Endangered", two level below extinction. There has been a decline in many parts of the animals' global range. The hammerheads fins are more highly valued than other species, therefore, highly vulnerable to target and bycatch in fisheries. Any conservation efforts to protect and preserve their existence is crucial.
