About

Malaysia is the ninth largest shark producer and third largest importer in volume terms. Between 2000 & 2011, Malaysia recorded average shark fin exports of 238 tonnes, worth RM3.9 million. Today, 80% of Sabah’s shark population has been wiped out!

What can you do to stop this? You need to say no to shark fin soup and shark products, learn as much as you can about sharks and support shark ecotourism.

To support shark conservation, 10% of the total proceeds received by end of June will be donated to Shark Savers Malaysia, Facebook- @SharkSaversMalaysia.

Mission of this volunteer-based organization includes reduce demand for shark fins through education, improve the image of sharks, end the practice of shark finning globally, raise awareness about threats to sharks, increase global pressure and legislation, be positively oriented and promote responsible fishing practices.

Shark finning is a very lucrative business due to high demand for shark fin soup. A bowl of shark fin soup can sell for as much as 100 US dollars per bowl. Shark finning is the practice of removing fins from a shark while it is still alive. The finless sharks were then discarded back to the ocean bottom to die a slow death. 73 million sharks were killed for shark fin soup. That is 3 sharks every second!
