Shark finning is the practice of cutting off a sharks fin while it's still alive and dumping the body back into the ocean. The fins are used for shark fin soup and traditional Chinese medicine. A study has shown that 10 species of sharks fins have been linked to neurodegenerative diseases in humans. Approximately 100 million sharks are killed worldwide each year. Some species of sharks have become vulnerable or endangered. Shark finning has a rippling effect on an ecosystem. The sharks prey now has no more predators, so they reproduce uncontrollably. With this then the population of their prey decreases. The populations of several species have declined. By signing this petition you will raise awareness for shark finning!
