Over 70 million sharks are killed each year to meet a growing demand for shark fin soup—and we need to act quickly to make sure shark populations worldwide have a fighting chance of recovering.
Internationally, numerous governments have passed or are considering bans on the trade in shark fins. The United States currently has a national ban on the brutal practice of finning in US waters —but a loophole still allows for the import of shark fins to California, which primarily enter the country through its ports. California now has the chance to join Hawaii, Oregon, and Washington State in banning the trade in shark fins.
To protect sharks worldwide from massive declines and risk of extinction, we simply must eliminate the trade in shark fins in California. Please add your name to our petition asking California's State Senate to put an end to the shark fin trade.
Dear Members of the California State Senate:
We apologize, but the selected Survey is currently unavailable.
