PETITION: Stop FedEx from shipping shark fins
TARGET: CEO of FedEx, Frederick W. Smith
The shark population has been dramatically declining in recent years with many species of sharks getting dangerously close to extinction. The reason why? Over 73 million sharks are killed each year for shark fin soup.
Sharks are captured in fishing nets, brought to shore for a few moments where their fins are then cut off and preserved, the shark is then tossed back into the water where it sinks to the bottom of the ocean and dies. The fins are subsequently bought and sold in the fin trade and shipped by major transporter, FedEx. FedEx’s policy is that it’s allowed as long as it’s packaged properly for human consumption.
UPS recently declared that they would no longer participate in the shark fin trade, and now it’s time for FedEx to stand up for animal rights.
