Mongolia Supports Shark Stanley

Shark Stanley is looking for at least 20 people living in every country to take their photo with him to show their support for listing sharks and manta rays at the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES).  The photos will be used for a unique kind of petition that literally shows the faces of shark conservation.  Using the very best of the submitted photos, each country will get their own page in Shark Stanley Petition Pages showing the photos their citizens took (the best photos will be taken in front of iconic landmarks...hint, hint).

The people of Mongolia are the first to provide Shark Defenders with enough photos to complete their country's page.  Once finalized, their page in the Shark Stanley Support Pages will look something like this:
Mongolia Supports Shark Stanley
Shark Defenders will send a hard copy of this page and once finished, a digital copy of the entire Shark Stanley Support Pages to Mongolia's representatives to CITES:
