Maryland: Protect Sharks and Our Oceans ! PLEASE SIGN ! !
Animals  (tags: animals, AnimalWelfare, environment, protection, wildlife, wildanimals, killing )

Shark finning is incredibly inhumane--and unless we cut off the market for fins, we continue to support the practice. Fortunately, legislation (S.B. 592 and H.B. 1148) has been introduced to stop the trade in shark fins in Maryland.

Signed. Worse than China eating shark fin soup here we have Australia contributing to the brutality by trading the fins! An international ban on the whole atrocious disgusting practice needs to be implemented.

I wonder if when they did this report that came out yesterday about the amount of food the world throws away, did they count all the sharks who subsequently die when they are thrown back after their fins are sliced off. I bet they did not.

Members of the European Parliament will soon vote on whether to close loopholes in the current EU shark finning legislation, Regulation (EC) No 1185/2003.

Every year, the fins of tens of thousands of sharks are sliced off and their bodies tossed back into the sea, often whilst still alive. It's a terribly cruel and wasteful practice.

Please take action today and urge your MEP to vote for better shark protections.

It is vital that the European Union introduces a fins naturally attached policy without exception.

This vote is an important opportunity to strengthen one of the weakest finning bans in the world and to help protect many tens of thousands of sharks from a terrible fate every year.

The new proposal, put forward by the European Commission, would ensure that all sharks caught by EU-owned vessels are landed with their fins naturally attached, leaving no opportunity for finning to take place at sea.

Please help ensure sharks receive the much-needed protection they so urgently deserve. Ask your MEP to vote in favour of a fins naturally attached policy without exception.
