Activists Uniting For The Benefit of Animals

Thank you Vancouver Animal Defence League and Fin Free Victoria for pressuring Kirin to go fin free

For two years we have been pressuring Kirin to adopt a fin free menu and they finally agreed without a single protest. A big thank you to activists from Fin Free Victoria who took the time to come over from the Island to meet with management at Kirin, this undoubtedly played a large part in their recent decision.

Kirin was one of the largest shark fin dealers in Canada. With 4 huge locations in the lower mainland, they are a popular choice for weddings and large banquets. After our recent victory with the Sun Sui Wah campaign we made a statement to media about our intention to move on to Kirin with our Fintastic Friday Night protests, soon after that they changed all of their in-house and online menus. Yesterday we confirmed with management that they will not be purchasing anymore shark fin, but they will use their remaining stock to provide for any events previously booked.

Please thank Kirin management for taking steps to protect our planets remaining shark populations.

We are currently searching for a new campaign target. With hundreds of restaurants in the lower mainland serving shark fin soup, we have a lot of work ahead of us.

We are still working on a Provincial shark fin ban with Fin Free Victoria, we should have some positive updates before the end of the month.
