SAVE THE SHARKS!




<img:http://www.elftown.com/img/photo/89128_1177682011.jpg>



A few days ago, (at the request of [Byne]) I watched a documentary called Sharkwater, which is about the horrors of the finning business. Needless to say, I'm not very happy about this, after all, sharks are not the ruthless killing apparatuses that you see on movies like Jaws and Deep Blue Sea. They are beautiful creatures that belong in this world just as much, if not more, than us humans. So, this wiki is dedicated to the sharks.

2. Donate or volunteer for an organization that deals with animal, wildlife or shark conservation.
3. Help spread awareness.
4. Do not buy any shark products. ( ie. shark fin soup, shark cartilage capsules...)

2008-06-08 [Ramirez]: Ooh, biatch wanted to stay. -snaps fingers all dramatically-

2008-06-08 [Trist]: oh, you did NOT go there!

2008-06-08 [Ramirez]: Oh I so did. =3

2008-06-08 [Avatar15]: I know the difference perfectly, theres no need.

2008-06-08 [Byne]: I love it here. Not a huge fan of the food that burns my lips and mouth, but the atmosphere here...The people I'm with.... And the conservation effort I'm helping.... :)

-Smacks Rami- Down boy! o:

And sorry Avatar. I'm kinda pissy at the moment. xD

2008-06-08 [Ramirez]: T.T

2008-06-09 [Byne]: -Cuddles.- I wish you were here with me?

2008-06-09 [Ramirez]: I wish I was too <3

2008-06-11 [Byne]: I'm just about finished my Rescue Diver certification...8D

No sharks yet. Some rays, but no sharks. ):

2008-07-21 [Byne]: Ah... Some good news? I've kinda been in contact with the director/creator/brainchild/star of Sharkwater. (: Rob Stewart. Wootness.

2008-07-22 [Tickle Me Emo]: Schweeeet! What did he have to say?

2008-07-22 [Byne]: He said thanks for our support and efforts to educate others on the crisis of sharks and other marine life. <3

2008-07-22 [Tickle Me Emo]: Cool, congrats! :D

2008-07-22 [Byne]: -Does a dance.-

2008-10-27 [Byne]: Just thought that I'd let people know this....

If you're familiar with the store Lush, they have a soap that benefits the sharks! If you buy their "Shark Fin Soap" which is also their's seaweed/seasalt soap, proceeds go towards the conservation of sharks...

OH! And a permanent research/patrolling station has been towed and secured off of the Darwin and Wolf Islands in teh Galapagos, in hopes of protecting the large shark species that are often poached there and to learn more about them.

2008-10-27 [Tickle Me Emo]: YAY, Lush!

2008-10-27 [Byne]: Just go into a store and ask them about it. One of the sales people should be able to give ya information. The soap smells really good, too!

2008-10-27 [Tickle Me Emo]: Mmm... I think they just put a Lush store in a shopping mall a bit of a drive from my home... but I always go shopping there on my birthday (because my birthday is right before Christmas... I love x-mas decorations!). I will defo check that out! :)

2008-10-28 [Byne]: We have them all over the place around here... Kinda... But they're a great store. x)

2010-01-12 [Byne]: If anyone is still watching this page, I thought it might be pertinent to say that I've met Boris Worm, one of the marine scientists they interviewed for the documentary "Sharkwater", and helped with research for "End of the Line," another documentary everyone should check out. I spent 45 minutes talking with him. Hopefully I'll be able to take his classes in third year!
