Garuda Airlines, LionAir, and Indonesia carriers: Please stop the transportation of shark fins

      Bali Sharks / MRRM.ORG

Indonesia is the World's leader in shark fin exports.  Some areas have completely depleted shark existence which has lead and caused the destruction of marine habitats.  Other areas are now suffering from an imbalance of marine ecosystems.  The Oceans are now dying.

    1. Garuda's policy to stop shipping shark fin!

      I'd like to thank everyone involved and that had participated in the request for Garuda Airlines to stop shipments of shark fins. Although they have not announced it officially in public, there seems to be enough media to reasonably believe they have implemented a ban on shark fin shipments.

      Being an active scuba diver, I choose places to travel based on whether or not the local waters are healthy and have sharks. No sharks, no travel.

      Shark fins should be on sharks and sharks should be in the sea. No quotas, no alternatives.

      Sharks need our protection! If we can't save sharks, we won't be able to save the oceans.
