Vote for Sharks & Rays at CITES CoP17

Threshers are so cute. How could they kill that face?

There's about a month to go for CITES CoP17 at Johannesburg.  This year there are proposals to include the Silky Shark, Thresher Sharks, Mobula Rays and Ocellate River Stingrays in Appendix II. Silky Sharks were once abundant but their numbers have drastically reduced due to finning and overfishing. The Threshers have also rapidly decreased due to finning. These are beautiful sharks. I hope they get the protection status they need.
