Leonardo DiCaprio was instrumental in getting shark fin soup banned in California.

Now, Leo has set his sights on New York.

There is a pending shark fin bill in New York and he's calling on people to support it!

He tweeted:

"We did it in Cali. C'mon #NewYork! RT @Oceana. Time is running out for bill banning trade of #shark fins. Act now: http://ow.ly/biCvC"

The bill would ban the possession, sale and trade of shark fins in New York.

Oceana, the organization spearheading the movement, said:

"Tens of millions of sharks are caught each year for their fins, and in some places these sharks are finned alive, a brutal practice in which a shark’s fins are hacked off at sea, and the animal is thrown overboard to die."

So sad!

C'mon, peoples!

Let's ban the shark fins! Stand up for the sharks, New York!
