Thank you, United Kingdom
Posted by Shark Defenders
The people of the United Kingdom were some of the most prolific Shark Stanley campaigners. Annie Anderson, the newest Shark Defenders blogger, helped us out the gates and gathered photos from Gemma Atkinson and Jessica-Jane Clement and basically anyone she talked to for weeks. We also had lots of help from our official partners Shark Aid UK and Earth Race Conservation. Many, but not all, of the photos are posted on Shark Stanley's Facebook page.
We officially presented a full copy of the Shark Stanley petition to Minister of State for Agriculture and Food David Heath. The minister thanked us and we congratulated and thanked him for the leadership of the UK and EU in proposing and passing the shark proposals at CITES CoP16.
