A European Union citizens’ online petition to ban the shark fin trade has hit 1 million signatures.
According to a recent LinkedIn notice:
“#StopFinningEU just hit 1 million voters who gave their signature to end the bloody shark fin trade in Europe! ??
“But the fight for sharks does NOT END NOW – it ends once the deadline is made by January 31. Until then everyone is asked to KEEP PUSHING! The more votes gained, the harder the pressure toward the EU to TAKE ACTION for sharks.”
If you’re an EU citizen, you can sign the petition at stop-finning-eu.org.
