Say No - to Shark Fins

Saving sharks is perhaps a difficult message to get across, and I say this as a scuba diver who used to take every opportunity to dive with sharks. Ok, I never dived  with a great white, but certainly some of the close cousins, who have all got a rather bad press since that famous movie and are seen as less than cuddly creatures.

The practice of "finning" due to high demand is horribly cruel and seriously impacting these amazing creatures. So it was good to see this display bringing the message home at the airport in one of the largest consumer markets for shark fin.

  1. There is no excuse for the finning and / or killing of sharks. They are a fascinating and precious species that we should do all we can to protect.
