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?

Nós não queremos animais no filme Grande Circo Místico / We say no to the use of animals in the movie Grande Circo Místico

Animais em circos são privados de seu direito inerente de viver em liberdade e de acordo com a sua natureza e peculiaridades. Animais não são entretenimento. Retirados de seu habitat, são açoitados diariamente, humilhados, privados de qualquer vestígio de dignidade. Para que um filme sobre um circo seja produzido ele não deve jamais utilizar animais em seu elenco, isto é um desserviço em tempos de luta por ativistas da causa animal para que o circo com animais seja finalmente banido em todo o mundo.

Animals in circuses are deprived of their inherent right to live in freedom and according to their nature and peculiarities. Animals are not entertainment. Removed from their habitat are beaten daily, humiliated, deprived of every vestige of dignity. For a film about a circus be produced it must never use animals in its cast, it is a disservice in times of struggle for animal activists concerned to the circus with animals is finally banned worldwide.
