OCEAN DAY ACTION: Email to Help Sharks in Vancouver · By Artist for the Ocean

Please help Vancouver, Richmond and Burnaby BAN shark fin! A city councillor stated today that if they get enough emails asking for a ban, this issue WILL be taken seriously. She said at this point they have not received enough emails to bring this issue to the table YET. PLEASE email them and pass this on!

Subject: Ban Shark Fin Soup

Dear Sir/Madam,

Please celebrate the ocean today by making a vote to ban shark fin soup. Over 70 million sharks are horrifically killed by cutting the fin off and throwing the body alive back into the ocean. It has grown to be big business globally by illegal practices that have reduced the sharks in the ocean to 10% remaining. The finning is for a bowl of shark fin soup that is nothing more than a tasteless soup used as a status symbol for weddings in the Chinese Culture.

We would like you to take this glorious day “Ocean Day” and make a point to protect its biodiversity by protecting the sharks with an action of banning shark fin soup.
