EBAY - STOP SELLING SHARK PRODUCTS!!!

eBay My World - gemcentre SELLS STUFFED SHARKS, jaws and teeth.
http://stores.shop.ebay.co.uk/Gem-Centre.
Under e-bay rules, this barbaric trade is allowed to continue.........
Sharks need all the help we can give them so lets stop the worlds largest online auction site selling sharks and shark products!

125 countries around the world now trade in shark products contributing to an uncontrollable surge in the number of shark taken from the oceans. In a little over 50 years the slaughter of sharks has risen 400 per cent to approximately 800,000 metric tons per year.

By 2017 it is anticipated that 20 species of shark could become extinct due to hunting, indiscriminate fishing techniques and, ultimately, man's greed.

Currently more than 100 million sharks are taken from the seas each year - a rate at which they simply cannot survive.

They cannot survive this onslaught because, unlike many other fish, most large sharks don't reach sexual maturity until seven years old or even later, and then only give birth to a few pups each year.

Right now, they are simply being caught and killed faster than they can reproduce - and what for...... SOUP, JEWELLERY AND ORNAMENTS!
We the Undersigned.... request that eBay ban immediately the trade in Sharks and Shark Products from its internet auctions sites across the world.

Currently more than 100 million sharks are taken from the seas each year - a rate at which they simply cannot survive. This is a period of mass-extinction for sharks and is entirely due to mankind's exploitation and greed.

They cannot survive this onslaught because, unlike many other fish, most large sharks don't reach sexual maturity until seven years old or even later, and then only give birth to a few pups each year.

Right now, they are simply being caught and killed faster than they can reproduce and without sharks (the apex predator) then the reefs and oceans of this planet will die as the ecosystems which have developed over hundreds of millions of years collapse.

There are no common sharks anymore - All sharks are threatened or endangered and some are on the brink of extinction...... why? ..... for their fins, for their teeth and to make ornaments.

eBay - please show the world you can lead by example! Help save the sharks by banning all shark products from your sites!

For the Oceans........For the Sharks.........For the Future.........
