DECEMBER 21, 2010
What an exciting day! Hot on the heels of yesterday’s Senate vote, the House passed the Shark Conservation Act earlier today.
This means that shark finning is illegal in the US.
Thousands and thousands of shark lovers like you contacted Congress about the Shark Conservation Act. And Congress listened.
Thank your Senators and Representatives today for keeping their commitment to sharks and healthy oceans »
Sharks are vitally important to our marine ecosystems, but commercial fishing has drastically depleted shark populations around the world, in some cases by 99%. The Shark Conservation Act is an important step in restoring shark populations and healthy oceans.
To everyone who took an online action, shared your advocacy on Facebook and Twitter, told your friends about this important issue – thank you! Contacting your Senators and Representatives about shark protections worked.
Send Congress a thank you note on behalf of sharks »
