Hawaii shark fin bill signed into law!

A few days ago, Governor Linda Lingle of Hawaii signed the recently passed shark fin bill into law. Starting on July 1 of 2011 it will be illegal to possess or sell shark fins within the state of Hawaii. Though this law, the strongest shark protection law in North America, is a huge success, we all still have a lot of work to do to protect sharks. We hope that other states will follow Hawaii’s example, and I will keep you posted on how you can help with those efforts.
