Malaysian Government Initiates Shark Fin Ban (4 Comments)

Shark fin soup has been banned from all events organized by the Natural Resources and Environment Ministry of Malaysia.
A small step, but one that will hopefully lead other countries, and the rest of the Malaysian government to follow.
A push has been going to get China not to serve shark fin soup at any of their official Olympic functions. Alternatively, the Olympians and their teams from the rest of the world could turn down the soup when served in China, which could have an even greater impact.

      Thank goodness! Malaysia is doing the right thing by banning shark fin soup. Hopefully that will instigate other countries around the globe to do the same.

      You have a great point; the China Olympics in the summer of ‘08 is a great way to get a ton of exposure for the movement to save Sharks across more than just the local stage. The message would hopefully get to the Chinese government as well as the many nations surrounding China that may be involved one way or another with the recent decline of the world’s shark population. My question is; what would be the best possible way to reach the Olympians and inform them about the movement and involve them with the program?
