Help Us Pass Legislation to Protect Sharks and Rays in Hawaiian Waters!

Despite their ecological and cultural importance sharks have very little protection here in Hawaii. Water Inspired Conservation Group and One Ocean Conservation have introduced a bill that will prevent the purposeful killing of sharks and rays in Hawaiian waters. Stay tuned to this page as well as @WaterInspired @Keiko_conservation and @OneOceanConservation for updates and opportunities to submit testimony or be present at hearings.

Not in Hawaii? No worries! You can still submit testimony online when hearings are scheduled and sign the petition below to send a strong message to decision makers that this bill is important to people around the world.

Current Status of SB489 and HB808:  Be sure to check back for updates and developments! The bill must pass a series of hearings requiring support at each level to make it to the next step. It’s important that  even if you submit testimony for one of the initial hearings you continue to support at each hearing  in order for the bill to pass and make it to the next level.

“FINS ARE A HIGHLY VALUED PRODUCT THAT IS DRIVING SHARK SPECIES TO EXTINCTION.

Even though the fin trade is not the only problem, it is by far one of the biggest issues we are facing when it comes to saving sharks. Some shark populations have declined by more than 90% in recent decades due to overfishing, and this fishing of sharks is mostly profitable because of the high value of fins. Some of the species involved are being driven to the brink of extinction. Whether it is the cruel act of finning or the legal market for shark fins, at the core of it all is greed; to make money off a product that is valued as a status symbol.”
