I'm angry, really angry!
There already is a huge illegal Shark Fin trade here in Australia ( e.g. http://www.news.com....5006009,00.html ) but don't be fooled, this isn't an approach of "lets legalise it and therefore control it" this is a politically motivated proposal with complete disregard for the consequences.
Next month I'm off to Sulawesi for a couple of weeks, I'm not expecting to see any sharks because they have finned them out, looks like soon it will be the same on the GBR .....
Can you help? We really need International pressure! Follow this link to the Australian Marine Conservation Society,
for more information, but also note the link at the end of the page to send an email to the Minister and State Premier, I hope you will be telling her that you wouldn't be visiting Queensland if this proposal succeeds.
Thanks for reading....
