HUGE VICTORY FOR SHARK CONSERVATION AS CITES MOVES TO PROTECT FIVE SHARK SPECIES AND TWO RAYS
This morning marked a bright new dawn for shark conservation, carrying with it the news that five shark species, along with both species of manta ray and the freshwater sawfish have officially been approved for trade protection under CITES law. Shark and ray conservationists around the world have been waiting with baited breath for this confirmation of their efforts since talks began on March 3rd, and are hailing the results as nothing short of historic. Held this year in Bangkok, Thailand, CITES is the world’s biggest wildlife summit. Its purpose is to regulate cross-border trade in wild animals and plants in order to ensure sustainability, and it is attended by 178 delegates from governments all over the globe.

Sharks kill fewer than 4 humans on average each year, while humans kill an estimated 100 million sharks annually.
Sharks have been honed to perfection, having existed on this planet for over 400 million years.
Sharks play a vital role at the top of the food chain by maintaining balance in the oceans.
* An estimated 73 million sharks are killed each year (that works out to more than 10,000 sharks per hour).
Shark fins are tasteless, and may contain high levels of toxic methyl-mercury.
Only a small number of countries have banned finning - many more need to be encouraged to enact legislation.
Many people assume that because they don’t eat shark fin soup – then they can’t possibly be contributing to the demise of the sharks and rays.
