Newest shirt “STOP SHARK FINNING” at Bant-shirts . Shark finning is an extremely serious problem which is threatening many species of sharks with extinction.

The money raised from the sale of this shirt is all going to support Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, an organisation that intervenes to stop illegal fishing and whaling, and who campaign to protect sharks and other ocean life.

(The practice of shark finning entails hacking off the shark’s fins on board the boat and throwing the rest of the shark - dead or alive - back into the ocean. There has been a massive growth in demand for shark fin soup in the Far East which has pushed the price of shark fins up to several hundred dollars per pound - the rest of the shark is of little commercial value and is often discarded to make room for other catch which will fetch a better price. Shark fin soup was traditionally consumed only as a delicacy, however with the increase in prosperity it is being consumed in massive and unsustainable amounts).
