Sharks Get Some Protection

Another reason to celebrate -- shark finning is now illegal in the US. Congress took the lame out of lame duck and passed the Shark Conservation Act. It's actually difficult to believe there's good news coming out of that legislative body these days but we'll take this one good step in a great direction.

Thank your Representative and Senator via Oceana and read more about the Shark Conservation Act.

Shark finning kills millions of these great and important apex predators essentially for soup prized by many Asians. But pop the top and toast the small victory for now.
