If you’ve supported Project AWARE’s shark campaign, signed the shark petition or rallied shark support in your community – then this message is for you.
Today, we need your help. Please take a few moments and send a letter direct to CITES leaders asking them to vote “Yes” for sharks and rays this March.
CITES is the world’s largest, most effective wildlife conservation agreement in existence. In a few short weeks, CITES delegates from countries around the world will make decisions for threatened sharks and rays on the brink. What we do today, could make a difference for 11 critical shark and ray species including hammerheads, oceanic whitetip, porbeagle sharks and manta rays.
Project AWARE is pounding the pavement harder than ever to ensure marine species receive protections that many land species have already been afforded. We’ll be there on the ground this March, meeting with CITES leaders face-to-face to help influence the votes.
More than 120,000 shark petition signatures you helped to collect are making a strong argument for change. Now you can send a letter direct to CITES leaders, insisting on international protections for these critical species. Thank you! www.projectaware.org
