It's disgraceful!
"And while they are killing endangered sea turtles, the primary goal of these pirate fisherman is to actually catch sharks for their fins, which are then shipped to Asia to make shark fin soup. Fisherman release long-lines that have hundreds and sometimes thousands of baited hooks inside these waters and risk unintentionally killing wildlife—not only turtles, but also whales, dolphins, and seabirds."

Noted. Petition previously signed {back in June}. Thanks so much, Cher. I'm so glad the turle was rescued and released. As for the fisherman, harsher penalties need to be in place for fishing in the protected waters. They could do more to catch the pirate fisherman. Of ocurse, putting a stop to shark finning would be a huge benefit as well.

“Never give up. No matter what is going on never give up. Develop the heart. Too much energy in your country is spent developing the mind instead of the heart, BE COMPASSIONATE not just to your friends but to everyone, BE COMPASSIONATE work for peace in your heart and in the world. Work for peace and I say again, never give up. No matter what is happening, no matter what is going on around you. Never give up.”—His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

“May all beings everywhere plagued with sufferings of body and mind quickly be freed from their pain. May those frightened cease to be afraid, and may those bound be free. May the powerless find power, and may people befriend all life. May those of all species who find themselves lost, the young, the aged, the unprotected, be guarded by beneficent celestials, and may they swiftly attain Buddhahood.”—Buddhist Prayer for Peace

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause

pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in

return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and

the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma.

Signed! Shark finning is of course a horrific practice where the shark is often still alive whilst its fins are hacked off and still alive when it is kicked back in the water to drown and/or bleed to death. The seminal research paper published in 2006 by Shelley Clarke estimates that 26-73 million sharks are killed every year for their fins. More than half of all known shark species are listed as 'vulnerable' or worse on the IUCN Red list of Endangered Species. This terrible practice must stop!

I wonder why these people are hunting?! can't they find something else ( useful ) to do?
Can't they leave the creature alone, to leave their life in peace?

And the sea creatures gathered together to discuss what could be done to annul the threat of these strange humans who seemed to have neither heart nor soul,

Littlest sea turtle spoke up and the elders listened carefully "Do not let us gather together for them to catch us all. We must learn their signs and communicate through symbols and codes.

Then the nets came..................
