FedEx: Ban the Shipment of Shark Fins

This petition had 12,959 supporters

Recently, both UPS and DHL announced that they would cease shipments of shark fins – a major victory in the protection of these animals, some of which are critically endangered.

Shark finning is a brutal practice – with their fins hacked off and their bodies thrown back into the water, these sharks can no longer swim and are left to die from shock, blood loss, starvation or predation by other fish.

Please join us in calling on FedEx to follow the example set by UPS and DHL and ban the shipment of shark fins!
