TAKE ACTION to protect sharks using this simple list of restaurants that serve shark fin soup.

Follow these three easy steps...

1. Scroll down the list, below, and find your nearest neighborhood restaurant.

2. Call them; explain politely that neither you nor your friends nor your family would ever consider eating at a restaurant that serves shark fin soup. Explain that shark populations have declined by 90% globally and that the shark fin trade is one of the main reasons. Tell them you'd rather have a healthy ocean than a bowl of soup. Pick the next restaurant on the list and repeat.

3. Forward this list to your friends and family and ask them to do the same.
