Did you know that 73 million sharks are killed each year for the shark fin trade? And did you know that one of the most effective ways to protect sharks is to eliminate the market for fins by prohibiting their sale?
AB 376, the bill that would ban the sale of shark fin products in California, will soon be voted on by the Senate Appropriations Committee, and, if it passes, will then head to the Senate floor for final approval. The votes are looking close - we need tell our State Senators to stop the sale of shark fins and vote YES on AB 376!
Please join Heal the Bay and other leading environmental groups on Saturday, August 13 to tell our State Senators to stop the sale of shark fins and vote YES on AB 376. Shark costumes are encouraged! Bonus: the first 100 kids in costume win a special prize!
