After seeing the shocking images of 18,000 shark fins set to dry on a Hong Kong rooftop, was pointed to this video showing in even more heartbreaking detail the extent of the barbaric operation.
Some Twitter followers also shared a link to a petition calling for the Hong Kong Government to make it public policy not to serve shark products are official functions. Do sign the petition and share the video to help highlight the plight of sharks around the globe.
2013 could be the year of the ocean – the year we help stop the devastation of our most important natural resource. This is one small step. We’ll keep you updated on the progress of the OceanElders and other groups trying to protect the ocean as the year goes on.
