SIGN THIS PETITION TO STOP SHARK FINNING
http://www.change.org/petitions/shark-killing-stop-all-killing-off-sharksShark Finning is where fishers catch sharks sometimes club them and cut of their dorsal fin then throw them back into the ocean. Shark cannot live without their fin because that’s how they keep their balance to be able to swim. If they can’t swim they can’t breathe so they drown. Finning is almost worse than just killing the shark because they die very slowly and the process is very agonizing.
They use the shark fin for Shark Fin Soup, a soup usually made in asian culture, and the fin is virtually TASTELESS. The soup used to be a luxury, and only made a really expensive weddings and events. Now since fishing has become so easy, fisherman can catch tons more than they ever could before, which means more people can eat it regularly.
In 2011 73 million sharks were killed, an most sharks are on the endangered list. Some estimate that 90 percent of the largest sharks have been wiped out. Sharks are vital to ocean life, and have shaped evolution. They are the oceans regulator, they keep other animals strong, and keep the ocean clean. They have been around for millions of years, and in decades they could be gone. NOT CENTURIES, just a few decades.
It’s important that we act now. We can’t wait until all sharks are gone, we cannot wait for a disaster. We have to prevent the disaster. Please sign this and REBLOG.
