Establish a Global Ban on Shark Finning.

  • by: WildAid
  • recipient: Ban Ki-Moon, The United Nations Secretary-General
Petition Target: Ban Ki-Moon, UN Secretary General



It's too barbaric to imagine, but it still happens. Fishermen catch a shark, slice off its fins, and then, cast it back into the water to die. This horrific practice is already prohibited in federal waters of the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and Carribbean, but sharks need more protection from finning and other threats.


Your signature can encourage all countries to prepare and implement plans for shark conservation and management as recommended by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization.


This petition also implores these nations to ban the cruel, wasteful and destructive practice of shark finning in local and international waters. This practice wastes 95-99% of the animal and makes proper management extremely difficult.


Sharks play a critical role in ocean ecosystems. Their numbers are beginning to dwindle. Please help them today!!


Sign Now to encourage Ban Ki-Moon and the UN General Assembly to take action immediately to protect the shark populations across the globe and stop shark finning
