Divers and all lovers of the ocean…here is a message from our friends at Project Aware as they enter into important talks with government officials over the next few days. Have you signed the petition?

Dear Shark Advocate,

Were 40,500 signatures strong and its only been a few short months for AWAREs “Give Sharks a Fighting Chance” petition. Are you part of the growing demand for sensible, effective, shark protection worldwide?

Now what?

Sharks need YOU! If your signature is not yet counted, please sign the petition today! It only takes two minutes and will help surge support for sharks just in the nick of time.

Project AWARE will enter into the first round of meetings with key government officials of countries party to the CITES agreement in a matter of days. And your signatures will be hand-delivered to officials in the US, UK, Germany and Australia.

With your help, well deliver a clear message that divers like you represent a major constituency. One that demands healthy shark populations and thriving marine ecosystems. One that strongly supports keeping sharks alive.

Are you already on board? If youve signed the petition, please take your shark support to the next level. Share the petition with friends, post it on your favorite social media network, print a petition (print versions available in many languages) and collect signatures at your next social event.

Lets see these numbers climb in your country. Just in time for these critical meetings so important on our pathway to victory.

Thank you for your support. Each and every one of you continue to inspire us with your messages of hope and urgency for sharks. Together, well help ensure survival for the most vulnerable and heavily traded shark species. And well persuade officials around the world to control international trade for the future.

Sincerely,

Jenny Miller GarmendiaExecutive Director, Project AWARE Foundation
