"No Shark Fins Singapore" campaign launched

Channel NewsAsia 13 Apr 12;

SINGAPORE: A "No Shark Fins Singapore" campaign has been launched at the Asia Dive Expo (ADEX) 2012.

It hopes to make Singapore shark fin-free by 2013 and is looking to convince all Chinese restaurants and companies to remove shark fins from their menus and corporate events respectively, and conduct active outreach programmes to primary and secondary schools.

Non-profit organisations that have shown their support for this ground-up shark conservation campaign so far include WWF Singapore, Project FIN, Fauna and Flora International, IUCN, Shark Research Institute, and Humane Society International.
