Shark Stanley CITES 2013

Shark Stanley at this week's Palau Shark Week
With sharks scheduled to come up for discussion tomorrow morning at the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), our first Shark Stanley campaign is coming to a close. As of this writing nearly 10,000 of you from 135 countries have taken the time to print up a copy of Shark Stanley, cut him out, take your photo with him, and email it in to us. The photos continue to pour in and we are forever grateful for your support.

We're not yet sure what Shark Stanley's next adventure will be, but regardless of tomorrow's outcome there is still plenty of work to do.  There are still shark sanctuaries to create, shark fin trade bans to enact, and consumer campaigns to conduct and Shark Stanley will be there to help out, and we hope you will be there, too.

Win or lose, in the coming days we'll be editing the Shark Stanley page on this blog.  It is posted below for posterity:

Shark Stanley and his friends were playing on the reef,
When down came a net that swept them away. 
But at last when they escaped, they saw to their grief, 
Their home had no sharks! Leaving it barren and grey. 

Now Stan and his buddies are searching the ocean 
From Bali to Brazil and Bangladesh to Belize
For friends to stand up and cause a commotion 
Because the world needs sharks to help save the seas! 

“Hello friend! My name is Shark Stanley and I am traveling around the world to find friends who will support shark and manta ray protections at the upcoming Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) meeting in March.  If you would like to help me with this mission, you can print a picture of me - or my friends Manta Reina, Pierre le Porbeagle, and Waqi Whitetip - cut us out, and take a photo with us anywhere you wish. Then please send us this photo along with your name and where you are from!  My supporters are compiling your photos from around the world to share on their blog and web pages, and sending them to governments voting at CITES to get their support!  Help us reach our goal of finding 50 organizations and celebrities to partner with me, and to collect at least 5000 photos from all 177 CITES countries!”
