The CA Governor hasn't sign... Please urge Governor Jerry Brown to sign AB 376 - the ban on shark fin in the state of California. Follow this easy to use email form: http://gov.ca.gov/m_contact.php. On this page, fill in and click 'Submit', then select AB 376 and check PRO (vs. CON), then write your comments in favor of sharks. Thank you for your support!

I just sent Gov. Brown this via the link above:

Dear Governor Brown,

I note that you have not yet signed into law AB376, banning the sale of shark fins in California.

I would urge that you do so soon. The issues around shark fin are really quite simple and have nothing to do with ethnicity or culture. Unless we act now to stop the numbers of sharks being caught, we will eradicate them as a species from the planet.

Hence this is a conservation issue.

We are asking California to take the lead and show the world that the management and conservation of our planets' oceans is a priority.

Please sign the bill into law at your earliest convenience.

Yours

Adam Hanlon


Please feel free to use this as a template if you want. As fisheries are a global concern, I see no reason why Wetpixel members from around the globe shouldn't email him. Please do so soon :laugh:
