At least 63 million sharks are killed each year for their fins. Australia still participates in the shark fin trade. What’s worse, the barbaric practice of live-finning could still be happening in waters like the Great Barrier Reef.
Queensland, Western Australian, and Northern Territory governments are the only ones that still have loopholes in their fishing laws which allow illegal finning to occur.
The solution is clear. A “Fins Naturally Attached’” policy will ensure sharks have to be brought back to port in one piece before their fins are cut off. Help stop live shark finning from happening at sea – tell them to close the loophole today!
