Take A Stand Against Shark Finning!
One in four species of sharks is already in danger of extinction, but every year, another 73 million sharks are killed for their fins.
Shark finning is a gruesome practice. It involves catching sharks, hacking off their fins and tails – usually while they are still alive – and throwing them back in the water. Unable to swim, the sharks then bleed to death, starve or drown. This brutal killing of our oceans' apex predators must stop!
Call on your members of Congress to support S. 793 and H.R. 1456, the Shark Fin Trade Elimination Act, and put an end to the U.S. commercial fin trade!
