Urge Ecuador to Take Urgent Action to Stop the Catastrophic Levels of Shark Killings

Urge Ecuador to Take Urgent Action to Stop the Catastrophic Levels of Shark Killings

Police in Ecuador say they have seized about 200,000 shark fins destined to be illegally exported to Asia, according to a report in The Guardian.

The interior minister said the seizure had “dealt a major blow to an international network that trafficked shark fins”.

However, the seizure of so many shark fins on mainland Ecuador, just 1,000km away from the Galapagos Islands, is catastrophic to shark numbers.

Sharks play an essential role in the marine ecosystem and removing them can cause the entire marine ecosystem to collapse.

Sharks should not be subject to a cruel death – just so their fins can be used in soup across Asia.

Will you join me in urging the government of Ecuador to take urgent action to stop the catastrophic levels of shark killings across its waters by employing more patrols and policing?
