Help put an end to shark finning

Please sign the petition

The Underwater Channel (UWC) is a new, global, web TV channel dedicated to celebrating the mysteries and marvels of the underwater world whilst at the same time being committed to being a maverick for change.

The Underwater Channel believes it is completely unacceptable that sharks, which are one of earth's oldest inhabitants, are now being pushed towards extinction by man, one of earth's more recent residents.

The petition will be presented to the UN Secretary General requesting that member states be made aware of the threats to sharks and encouraged to put in place effective legislation to stop shark-finning, or more effectively police existing laws.

They are trying to reach 10,000 signatures by World Ocean Day on June 8th.
