Planet in Peril

19th September 2008

Today I’m drawing your attention to CNN’s Planet in Peril series, which has a section devoted to covering the trade in endangered sharks and the consequences of shark fin soup.

SOSF has been a long time supporter of WildAid’s work in China, where we are actively working together to stop the dramatic increase in illegal shark fishing brought on by a surge in demand for shark fin soup. One of our most outstanding achievements was in recruiting Chinese basketball star Yao Ming for a series of anti-finning billboards which were erected around China in time for the summer Olympics.
