The underwater channel started a petition against shark finning known as Not On Our Menu. Their mission is to assemble 10,000 signatures by World Ocean Day Monday June 08, 2009.
Members of the Aquatic Army, we are called to act. There are close to 9000 signatures to date. We as a group could be responsible for getting that number to 10,000.
Once reached the petition will be presented to the United Nations Secretary-General where it is hoped that shark finning will officially be banned once and for all.

About World Ocean Day:
The concept for World Oceans Day was proposed in 1992 by the Government of Canada at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro and it had been unofficially celebrated every year since then.
As of 2009, "World Oceans Day" has been officially declared by the United Nations as June 8th each year! This year is especially important for sharks!
