Forest & Bird has joined forces with other groups to put an end to shark fining. So far, 98 countries have banned shark fining. NZ hasn’t. In NZ  waters, it is completely legal to kill a shark only for its fins and dump the body overboard. We think this is an unsustainable and wasteful practice, especially as global shark numbers have
rapidly declined in recent decades.  The government is reviewing the National Plan of Action for sharks. Please sign our petition and watch for updates on how you can have your say. Visitwww.nzsharkalliance.org.nz for more information.

  1. I signed the petition. It is a cruel and pointless activity.
