Washington State Passes Important Law to Protect Sharks
Good News for Sharks!
Setting an important precedent in the continental U.S., the Washington State House of Representatives has passed legislation (SB 5688) banning the illegal trade of shark fins; following the lead of the Washington State Senate that previously passed the Bill, unanimously. The bill passed the House almost unanimously at 95-1 and now awaits the signature of the Governor. Thank you to everyone who wrote, emailed, called and helped to make this ban a success!
A similar ban is already in place in Hawai'i and is pending in both Oregon and California. Stay tuned for actions you can take to help us continue to protect sharks.
