Just a huge thank you to all Divers for their signatures and support in helping preserve our aquatic life – in particular SHARK EXTINCTION.
In less than two weeks Bangkok will play host to the largest, most effective wildlife conservation agreement in the world, CITES (Convention on International Trade of Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora).
Project AWARE is holding a special Divers @ CITES4SHARKS : Extinction is NOT an Option event on Friday 1st March: 10.30am – 12pm outside the Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre, Bangkok.
Our Aim? We’ll be filming our event so we can make a statement on behalf of divers worldwide. We want to do everything we can to persuade CITES delegates to vote YES for sharks and rays.
Divers are in a unique position, we can highlight to CITES leaders and the media the incredible importance our industry places on healthy shark and ray populations. We understand that live sharks and rays have far greater economic value than one time selling for fins and meat.
