The journey to making Massachusetts shark fin free began in 2012 when two Shark Angels, Alayne Chappell and Carol “Sammy” Samarov, came together to build Fin Free Massachusetts. From there, they formed a broad coalition of ocean and animal advocacy groups, including The Humane Society, MSPCA-Angell, New England Aquarium, Shark Angels, Oceana, Women Working for Oceans, and several invaluable others. Together, with legislative sponsor, Senator Jason Lewis, they filed a bill to ban the sale, trade, and possession of shark fins in the summer of 2013.
Hi, My name is Alexi and I am 13 years old, in 7th grade, at Myrtle Grove Middle School in Wilmington, NC. I recently finished a school project called the problem/solution project … I was to research a problem in the world that could be anything from the environment, to cancer, to child abuse, etc. It had to be a problem that we were passionate about. I decided to do my project on the Misconceptions of Sharks and Shark Finning. Living on the coast of North Carolina, my whole family surfs...a lot! We have seen many sharks out here and every time I saw one it had always scared the heck out of me! I wanted to learn more about sharks so that way I wouldn't be scared of them when I went in the water. In the beginning I was planning on doing the project with four of my other friends, but they decided they weren't that interested anymore. I was torn because I wanted to do the project with them but I also had this gut feeling about doing my project on sharks. In the end I chose to stick with my idea and do it myself!
We, as a society, love our monsters. And perhaps none are demonized and feared more than sharks. With Shark Week starting again next week, you might be surprised to hear the Shark Angels perspective on the programming. Or maybe not – since the Angels are always, like sharks, in the middle of controversy. Simply put, there are bigger issues facing sharks and the positive aspects of the week prevail over the bad.
