FACTS - Shark Finning
-Removal and retention of shark fins
-Discarding carcass at sea
-Shark often still alive when tossed back to water
-Left unable to swim the shark slowly sinks to bottom of sea
-Its eaten alive by other fish or bleeds to death
100 Million sharks killed each year for their fins!
Its a multi-billion dollar industry......and all for a bowl of soup!!
If we stop restaurants serving shark fins, then we stop the demand.

Stop Red Chilli Restaurants serving Shark Fin. Click here to SIGN THE PETITION
Tuesday, 8 February 2011
Well so far...so good! We have nearly hit the 1000 target and plan to keep it going for a little bit longer to see if we can get a few more signatures. Red Chilli have not responded to any emails, so we think they are going to be tough to persuade, so the more signatures...the better! Once again thank you for your continued support and keep spreading the word folks!

We are urging everyone to sign the petition and help make a difference. Red Chilli Restaurants serve three different shark fin dishes, one of them including eight different kinds! If we can get them to take shark fin off their menu then it would help reduce the demand for shark fin in the UK. We have had fantastic support so far with over 700 signatures, and have had support from the Shark Water production team who have placed the video and the petition link on their blog. Stopsharkfinning.net were also hugely supportive and have placed it on their site as well as their face book page. We have already made a start but lets keep it going and get this sorted once and for all!!
