How are they NOT banned?! #Repost @cristinamittermeier ・・・
Canada is leading a movement – 260,000 strong – that is, 260,000 people who have already signed a petition that calls on the Canadian government and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO, @fisheriesoceanscan) to ban the trade of shark fins. Bill S-238 has made it farther than any other attempt to ban shark fins in Canada before, and it is SO close to becoming a reality. In the wake of the recent and sobering assessment from @IPBES_ and @UNenvironment on the state of global biodiversity, the implementation of laws that protect wildlife and ecosystems are paramount to conservation success. The link to the petition is in my bio. Add your voice and contact your officials to make sure we stand a chance to win. 🦈 #signplease
