Despite most of the United States banning shark fins, New York continues to import shark fins as they are an Asian delicacy, and used to make soup in certian ethnic cultures.


Sharks are caught, have their fins chopped off, and are thrown back int the ocean to sink and drown, being unable to swim. Aside from shark finning being inhumane and barbarically cruel, many sharks are now endangered. Currently, there are 39 endangered sharks and rays.


We ask New York to stop importing shark fins and ban shark finning like much of the rest of the United States. It's time to start protecting endangered species and take part in ocean conservation. Millions of sharks are killed annually, {for a bowl of soup}, and they are killed faster than they can reproduce.
