Hello Good People. Thank you again for your support on this issue. 2 weeks ago we reached our initial goal of 1000 signers on this petition. With the recent developments in Guam, Hawaii, and now California, we are now in the midst of planning the delivery of this petition to the owners of Mr. Chan Chinese Restaurant here in Cape Town, in conjunction with press coverage and local film screenings to drum up more local support.
Mr. Chan is the only restaurant in Cape Town that is known to offer Shark Fin Soup on their menu and thanks to your support, we will be able to show them that we are not willing to allow the sale of these products in our community. Sharks are too valuable to our marine ecosystems and many species are already in danger of extinction. To continue to exploit them for any reason, here and abroad, will be disastrous.
We will remind Mr Chan know that this isn't a cultural issue. It is an issue purely about shark conservation and humane actions.
In the meantime, continue to share this petition with more people and we will gather as many signatures as possible.
