January, 2023 Greetings from Brussels – Today we handed over 1.119.996 statements of support for a shark fin ban to the EU Commission! Thank you again for your contribution and support of this initiative over the last 2,5 years!
On this special day more than 50 people from 10+ European countries gathered on the Place de Luxembourg in Brussels in front of the EU Parliament. We stand for more than 1.1 million people, 100 conservation organizations, countless companies and celebrities, and last but not least, teams from more than 15 EU countries and a multitude of people who believe that ending the trade in shark fins is the way to end the biggest threat to sharks in the world’s oceans.
A BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT PARTICIPATED!
With today’s submission of our European Citizens Initiative the official political process has been kicked off. It’s a tough road ahead, but this has been an amazing start.
