Sharksavers is urgently calling on all California residents to contact the members of the Senate Committee on Natural Resources before 28 June and express your support for Assembly Bill AB376. The bill aims to ban the sale of shark fins in the state. It has encountered some fierce opposition by a group that is very organized, and rebutting the scientific data regarding shark populations. It is important that the members of the committee are both aware of the true facts, and also of the public support for the bill.
The Sharksavers pages have some ideas on how to present your arguments to the Committee. Please call the members now!
