URGENT: Contact Governor Brown
Sign Shark Finn Bill AB 376
California friends - please excuse the mass email. A group of activists has worked tirelessly for months to get AB 376 through the CA legislature. This bill will ban and sale, trade, and possession of shark fins in CA. Although shark finning is banned in US waters, CA still imports large numbers of fins caught in the open ocean.
Each year over 73 million sharks are killed for their fins. Many have their fins cut off while they are still alive, then they are thrown, utterly helpless, back into the ocean to bleed to death. The balance of the entire marine ecosystem is critically endangered, as sharks are the top predators and absolutely essential to a healthy ocean. All this for a bowl of soup that is a fatal tradition! Powerful, wealthy interests are still trying to kill this legislation.
Please either call or email Governor Brown right away and urge him to sign AB 376. We cannot let this bill die for lack of signature. You can get his phone number from link below or email him from the same link. Thanks,
