Bite-Back Shark and Marine Conservation released their new campaign film, a grizzly view of the practice of shark finning, on October 31st to coincide with halloween. The film was intended for TV, but was deemed to graphic and disturbing. It was, however, shortlisted for a Panda award for best Campaign film at this year's Wildscreen Festival, alongside Brazilian Friend Finder (Greenpeace) and the winning film, Trust Alaska (WITNESS in co-production with Our Children's Trust & iMatter Campaign USA).
You can read more about the film and the campaign on the Bite Back web site at the following page;
It's a powerful film, perhaps depicting old news to many of the seasoned divers who frequent the boards, however the general non-diving public are still very much in the dark about this type of practice. Please spread the word, with your help it will go viral.
