Their numbers are dropping and we are their biggest threat. Sharks are hunted for shark fin soup but they cannot reproduce fast enough to catch up with global demand. In the Atlantic Ocean, oceanic whitetips have lost up to 70% of their population.

Leave the sea life alone, if you want to hunt go hunt down the rapists and child molesters, that should keep the scum happy,scum hunting scum

Noted, signed. Sharks seem to be one of the most demonized creatures on Earth, despite the very fact that, when talking numbers, we humans are far more dangerous to them they they are to us. Not only do I disagree with shark finning, which I consider inhumane and wasteful, but I am also convinced that any endangered species is deserving of protection.

Some people think that sharks have no feelings, if a shark could speak I bet anyone anything that it would say "please don't hurt me what did I ever do to you for you to be causing me so much pain" if humans are the ones with the big brains, then why are they destroying the world? you don't see animals doing that!!!

Ruth, Your comment is outstanding, will try to send you a star...Living here on the Pacific Coast, We HATE Sharks that kill surfers, just thinking that they are seals, but killing these Sharks is TOTALLY upsetting our Ocean structrue and with what is going on in the World today, that is TRAGIC!

We, the PEOPLE, can only, effect change.

We need only, _not_ purchase these products.

Margaret Mead said, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

There's really nothing to debate when it comes to animal suffering,
they can ALL feel pain.
