Shark Fins Officially Banned In California!

Victory!

As we already mentioned, with California being one of the largest hubs in the shark fin trade, it's a big win now that Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill into law banning the sale, possession and trade of shark fins in California.

One of the biggest supporters of the shark fin ban bill was Leonardo DiCaprio. Leo wrote on his Facebook page:

"Thanks for all your calls, emails, signatures, posts and retweets. We did it!!"

With up to 73 million sharks killed each year for their fins, hopefully this ban will help to seriously shrink that number.

The dwindling number of sharks has begun to affect the ocean's eco system, so hopefully the population will begin to swell, at least off the California Coast.

Way to go, Leo and crew! Save the sharks!
