Keep Shark Fins Out of California
The deadline to pass a state-wide shark fin ban is rapidly approaching. Take action TODAY.
Shark finning, a brutal and wasteful act where fishermen cut off sharks' fins and toss the bleeding shark overboard to die, is now banned in US waters. But sharks are still not safe.
There is a booming business in the shark fin trade, leading to the deaths of tens of millions of sharks every year. And many of those fins come from overseas, where finning still occurs.
Sharks can't reproduce fast enough to keep up with the demand for their fins. But California can make a difference. AB 376 will make it illegal to possess or sell shark fins in California, which will take some pressure off these magnificent and important animals.
The California Senate has already passed this important legislation. Tell Governor Brown to sign AB 376 into law TODAY!
