SAY NO TO SHARK FINNING IN NEW ZEALAND
Last year the NZ Government released a proposal that would see shark finning made illegal within three years. Then, following 45,000 public submissions they accepted the proposal, and it has now been brought forward - with a few changes. Unfortunately some of these changes mean that two important shark species – mako and porbeagle – are not properly covered.
As mako and porbeagle sharks appear on the IUCN Redlist of Threatened Species it is vital that both species receive the best possible protection.
Use this form to tell the Government to close this loophole and ban shark finning properly in New Zealand.
