Thanks for opening our eyes with this post.

I guess we can do our share by minimizing shark hunting as well as protecting the marine habitat of sharks. How? One thing we can do is by reducing the waste we release into our ocean. Water is life anyway. http://youtu.be/xyH957EEXWE

A warm "hello" from Madeira.

I have read this post with interest and wish you success in your support for Californian bill AB 376.

It is tragic that so many sea creatures are being hounded into extinction.

But, do not give up hope. Here, in Madeira, the Mediterranean Monk Seal was once widespread. However, the early settlers of the island and their ancestors hunted these mammals to the brink of extinction.

In the mid 1990s, it was estimated that the world population of Monk seals was around 600. At that time, it was estimated that just 20 lived in the waters around the Madeiran archipelago.

From 1988, the Madeiran local legislature enforced an effective and strict protection of the seals and their habitat.

Today, it is estimated that maybe as many as 40 individuals make up the Monk Seal colony around Madeira. This number is still dangerously low, but the population is gradually increasing.

So, with goodwill and strong legal enforcement, it has been demonstrated that sea creatures can be protected.

Wishing you from Madeira every best wish for you endeavours to protect the remaining sharks in the ocean.

I'M A CHEF, N'A DEEP WATER DIVER. I ALSO GO FISHING WITH A SPEARGUN, I HAVE HUNTED SHARKS IN MY LIFE BUT ONLY BECAUSE I HAD NOTHING ELSE TO EAT, NOT FOR MAKING MONEY. YOU CAN'T IMAGINE HOW BEAUTIFULL FISH THE SHARK IS. SO EVERYBODY LET'S PROTECT THEM, SO OUR CHILDREN HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY YEARS LATER TO SEE A SHARK, NOT FROM PHOTOS, OR AQUARIUMS BUT FROM CLOSE-ALIVE ONES. IF WE KILL ALL THE SHARKS, THE FOOD CHANGE IS GOING TO BE DESTROYED. THANK U-JAMES-ZANT.

I'm so glad that so much people are interested in shark conservation. Together we can help to save sharks. Jorge, www.keep-sharks-alive.com

I have always loved sharks. They are beautiful, mysterious, dangerous, yet gentle. Please work to conserve them!

Thanks to everyone who has worked on AB 376. It's about time this was done. I'm Chinese and find it ridiculous that shark fin soup is still sold just because it's a "status symbol". Now we just have to get China to figure it out.

Since I was a kid I was really afraid of sharks because of some stories told by mom and due to some films on TV. Knowing about this is so unfair because they do have life too that humans should be respected.

Part of what we can do to help is not patronize restaurants that serve shark fin soup. If you see it ont the menue, LEAVE, and on the way out tell the manager why!

Thanks for asking Camille! Over the coming months we'll be letting everyone know what they can do to support this important bill. Yesterday was just the official launch!
