“The demand for shark fins is driving some shark species to extinction. Tens of millions of sharks are caught each year for their fins, and in some  places these sharks are finned alive, a brutal practice in which a shark’s fins are hacked off at sea, and the animal is thrown overboard to die.
New York is currently the largest importer and exporter of shark fins on the East Coast, but if we act now, these facts could be history. The New York Senate and Assembly are considering bills that would ban the possession, sale, and trade of shark fins within the state. Sharks are vital to the health of the oceans, and the worldwide shark fin trade is killing them. California, Oregon, and Washington have already passed similar bans – now let’s have New York lead the charge on the East Coast.”
If we could ban the shark fin trade in NYC, that would be really awesome! Here’s a message you can send to NY legislators, all ready to go, by OCEANA!
