#Winning

Angelo and Sue from Pew Charitable Trusts
All four shark and manta ray proposals were approved in plenary today.  Had we been more organized, we'd have some sort of statement, but we don't.  We'll work on it.  I'm guessing we don't yet comprehend the enormity of this shark victory.

Thank you to the thousands of people who participated in the Shark Stanley campaign and to the hundreds of you who sent last minute emails directly to delegates.  It was an honor and a privilege to bring your voice and vote to CITES this year.

Oceanic whitetip, hammerhead, and porbeagle sharks and both species of manta rays stand a chance now because CITES works.  And you did this.  Thank you.
