Petition to ask New York restaurants to stop serving shark fin soup. This has been set up by New Yorkers Against Shark Finning - www.nyasf.org. "We, and many other environmentally conscious New Yorkers, feel strongly that serving Shark Fin Soup in US restaurants, where the practice of shark finning is banned, is a moral contradiction to our shared goal of protecting the environment. We therefore urge that restaurants start taking an ethical stand and accept full responsibility for what they are serving to customers by eliminating this one dish from their menu."
