Stop Shark Finning

This petition had 5,964 supporters

The wasteful practice of finning - slicing off a shark's valuable fins for soup and tossing the body back to sea - must be stopped.

Please send the message below to your senators urging them to vote "YES" on The Shark Conservation Act of 2009 that will close current loopholes to stop the practice while revitalizing shark conservation efforts on a global scale.
