Dear all,

 

We still need 116 Members of the European Parlaiment (MEP's) to sign the written declaration to close the loopholes in the European finning ban.

The EU fishing fleet is responsible for 1 in 3 shark fins in trade in the whole world!!

 

More info:

Please do your part and send a few letters to MEP's to remind them of the written declaration.

We have prepared for you standard letters in the language these MEP's speak.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO HAVE THE NATIONALITY OF A EUROPEAN COUNTRY (or live there) TO WRITE THE MEP'S.

Pelagic sharks cross country borders every day and the oceans belong to us ALL!
