#USAsharks Are Heating Up

Proposed rules implementing the Shark Conservation Act could undermine state shark protections.
The leading shark conservation organizations are all in agreement that the Shark Conservation Act should not be used to undermine shark protections in the US states and territories with shark fin trade bans.  The Pew Charitable Trusts, Oceana, and Humane Society International have started gathering signatures and comments and we encourage you to sign all three.  As new petitions come online, we will make you aware of them.

The story has started to gather considerable media attention.  Outlets in Australia, Guam, American Samoa, and Northern Mariana Islands have already run stories.
