Last Night

Wednesday, March 07, 2007

I went to see the premier of a documentary on sharks that is going to be opening in theatres in a couple of weeks. The Director was there to answer questions at the end of the show and it was amazing. I was surrounded by environmentally-conscious, aware and literate people. The humanity in the room filed me with hope.

Sharks are being killed for the consumption of shark fin soup. It needs to be banned. Eradicated. Read more about this specific issue in a great on-line article posted here. And more about shark conservation from a great organization and wonderful web site here.

    They should ban it immediately as the process is totally inhuman. Sharks have the reputation of being cold-blooded killers, but we warm-blooded killers are far worse.

    I'm glad they gave you hope, we need more people like you, to spread the word, to make us all aware. Please reproduce and spread throughout the world! ;)

    I've seen a program on the killing of sharks for shark fin soup before. It is horribly cruel. As much as sharks are seen as the enemy, they deserve to live just as much as we do. Humans can be terribly cruel. Thanks for sharing, Cathy ... I agree with Devil Mood ... the world needs more people like you.
    Take care, Meow
