Because Asians like shark fin soup, many thousands of sharks are caught, their fins cut off and the sharks are thrown back into the water to die. President Clinton signed a law banning shark finning but there are loopholes and, since 1990, shark finning has reduced the shark population 90%.
I just signed a petition for congress to do something about this, yet my thought goes to cutting the demand. This means that Asian people and their government must change their soup habits to preserve and be humane to the specie. That will not happen because the whales and elephant and rhino tusks are excellent examples of the mentality that doesn't care about earth's inhabitants and heritage.
I really didn't want to write this blog because it is like pissing uphill. It is not like Asians don't know what is happening to whales, elephants, rhinos and sharks. They certainly know and that is the sad part; that is what is offensive to me.
