end the trade in shark products
Sharks may be much maligned in the press, but their numbers are also seriously in decline. HSI has been working around the world in an attempt to improve the protection provided to sharks. One of the main areas which can be tackled is the trade in shark products. You can read more about this trade and HSI 's work towards protecting this species here.
Our sharks have much more to fear from us than we do them. Help us by letting the Australian Government know that you would support the ban on shark fins and other products
Let them know:
- that worldwide momentum is building and many countries and states are acting to protect the sharks in their waters, by introducing laws to prohibit the possession and sale of shark fins and other products.
- Australia needs to act now before it falls behind. Australia's sharks also need protection, and the introduction of these laws in Australia wold significantly help shark conservation efforts.
