An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Vote YES on H.R. 2811

15 so far! Let’s get to 25 signers!

Not only has our shark population declined by more than 70% since 1970 (that’s an ENORMOUS decline), but this practice is also inhumane, barbaric, and absolutely horrific. They literally take the shark fins and throw the shark back in the ocean where it will bleed to death, get eaten by another animal, or drown. Shark finning is illegal, and we need to stop it from happening. By banning the sale of shark fins, we can take one step closer to helping our shark populations and ending this horrific practice. As rational beings, WE are the only ones who can take charge of what is happening on our planet. This is why I urge you to support H.R. 2811 to make the sale of shark fins illegal. You are the who has the power to change this situation, and all it takes is your support of this bill. Thank you so much for your time and consideration of helping preserve and protect our oceans.
