HELP SAVE THE SHARKS AND SIGN HSI'S NO SHARK FIN PLEDGE!
May 31, 2012Every year, in oceans around the world, tens of millions of sharks are hunted to meet the demand for shark fins used in an Asian delicacy, shark fin soup. The soup is sold in many countries including places in the United States. You can even buy shark fins in New York City’s Chinatown.
Demand for this soup fuels shark finning, and this cruel and wasteful practice must stop. As an avid diver, I know that even though they may not be the most cuddly animals in the world, sharks are truly stunning and peaceful creatures up close. In the last year I have gone diving with great whites in South Africa and hammerheads and reef sharks in South America, and I can tell you that sharks are greatly misunderstood. I need your help to support the movements in places like New York, New Jersey, Delaware and Canada to ban the trade and sale of shark fins. Join me in the effort to save sharks by taking the Humane Society International’s No Shark Fin pledge.
