White sharks, Carcharodon carcharias, is not on the US Endangered Species List. However, it is listed under Appendix II of CITES, making international trade in white shark products subject to permit.

Pilot whales, Globicephala spp., are also not on the US endangered Species List. However, they are protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act, which regulates all "take" of any marine mammals by US citizens, and in US waters.

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
