On September 14, 2014, groundbreaking protections took effect for five endangered shark species and all manta rays. The new rules, established at the 2013 meeting for the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), require that these species be sustainably and legally harvested for international trade. This is the first time that commercially valuable and widely traded shark species have been included under these protections.
We achieved a huge victory with these protections, but we need your help. Six nations refused to accept the terms of this international mandate: Denmark, Canada, Guyana, Japan, Iceland, and Yemen. Please sign below to urge them to comply. Your signature makes a difference!
Act Now! Enforce CITES Decision for Sharks & Manta Rays!
