    More than half of Thais have eaten shark fin and plan to consume it again in the future. A large proportion of people remain unaware about the magnitude and cruelty of the shark fin trade, suggesting a concerning potential for increased demand for fins in Thailand, according to a new report released today by WildAid. In addition, Thailand exports a significant amount of shark fin products, further increasing its impact on shark populations.

    Protect sharks or they face possible extinction in a generation, scientists warn. Sharks are targeted for their fins ONLY for use in shark fin soup !

    As empowered travellers ‘with the wallet’, we have the power to influence change … to demand change. Refuse to support restaurants or hotels with restaurants that serve shark fin.
