Governor Sandoval- please sign this bill to keep wildlife alive.
The exotic wildlife trade in Nevada is threatening many species of animals from elephants to sharks. Oregon, Washington and California all have laws protecting exotic wildlife from trade of their body parts. Senate Bill 194 prohibits the purchase, sale or possession with intent to sell any item in this State that a person knows or should know contains or is, wholly or partially, made of an animal part or byproduct derived from any species of elephant, rhinoceros, whale, tiger, lion, leopard, cheetah, jaguar, pangolin, sea turtle, shark, ray, mammoth, narwhal, walrus or hippopotamus. Full text of SB 194 is here.
Las Vegas is a major destination of tourism including exotic foods and shark fin trade and consumption is the highest in the USA. Please add your voice and support SB 194 and help Shark Stewards protect endangered and threatened wildlife. Learn more at http://sharkstewards.org/shark-finning/ban-the-trade-of-shark-fins
