Petition: Hong Kong Government: Legislate a ban on the sale and possession of shark fin in Hong Kong.
From Honduras to New Caledonia, from the Bahamas to the Maldives, the people have spoken. And governments have listened. Now is the time for Hong Kong to wake up! The public is ready. The business sector is behind us. Now is the time for a total sale and possession ban on shark fin in Hong Kong. By doing so, Hong Kong will take a giant step to join the conservation efforts of numerous countries around the world who have enacted shark protection legislation. In Latin America it will join Honduras. In the United States it will join California, New York, Hawaii, Washington, Maryland, Delaware and Oregon. In the Pacific region it will join Palau, Tokelau, Marshall Islands, French Polynesia, Cook Islands, American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands and New Caledonia. Even China has agreed to stop serving shark fin soup at official banquets, to take effect in the next year or two.
Banning shark fin from the streets of Hong Kong will be the single most important marine conservation achievement of the year. It will be an important step towards protecting the health of our oceans. It will also remove the stain on Hong Kong’s reputation as a world-class tourism hub.

BALLSIEST. PETITION. EVER.

Sharks are allowed to hate us and eat us alive at a nice day at the beach, but we’re signing a petition? Yea sorry dude, I’ll pass.
Bro, sharks are animals. they can’t hate you.
Also, you’re more likely to drown, get in a car accident and drop dead from a heart attack at the beach than get killed by a shark. Heck you’re more likely to be killed by a lightening strike, vending machine, your dog, ants, and the infamous coconut fall than by a shark.
Sharks kill around 6 per year. SIX. that’s like one more than the fingers on one hand.
let me say that again. ONLY ~SIX PEOPLE DIE PER YEAR BECAUSE OF SHARKS.
They are integral part of the ecosystem and deserve our protection and respect.
