Something Annette cared about

Postby KiwiPete » Tue Jan 10, 2017 1:36 am

But she won't see it here, so just posting cause I'm bored out of my mind.


Air China bans shark fin cargo

Air China has become the first airline in mainland China to ban shark fin cargo, marking a dramatic shift in attitudes toward trade in endangered wildlife and throwing a lifeline to shark populations threatened with imminent extinction.

Scientists estimate that fins from up to 73 million sharks a year are used for shark's fin soup, with much of the trade in shark fin destined for China.
Courier company United Parcel Service bowed to pressure to ban shark fin shipments in August 2015, acknowledging concerns about authorities' enforcement capabilities and the adequacy of visual inspections to determine if shark fins being shipped belonged to endangered species. Rival DHL took a similar step in 2014.

At least 35 other airlines and 17 global container shipping lines around the world have also signed up to the campaign to ban the shipment of shark fin, including, in July, the Chinese state-owned shipping giant China COSCO Shipping Corporation.

The Chinese government has been moving to restrict the shark fin trade for several years.
In 2013, as part of its campaign against government corruption and extravagance, it banned shark fin soup from official banquets.

Just a decade ago, though, most Chinese people were oblivious to the issue, with many not even knowing the soup - known in Chinese as "fish wing" soup - was made with shark fins. But attitudes began to change after WildAid enlisted Chinese professional basketball player Yao Ming, who played for the Houston Rockets, to front a public awareness campaign in 2006.

That's not all... China also plan to shut down their trade in elephant incisors.

This year, I'm going to join our American cousins and celebrate Thanksgiving the old fashioned way. By which I mean I'm going to invite all my neighbours round for an enormous feast, kill them all and then take their land.
