Stop FedEx from shipping shark fins

PETITION: Stop FedEx from shipping shark fins

TARGET: CEO of FedEx, Frederick W. Smith

The shark population has been dramatically declining in recent years with many species of sharks getting dangerously close to extinction. The reason why? Over 73 million sharks are killed each year for shark fin soup.

Sharks are captured in fishing nets, brought to shore for a few moments where their fins are then cut off and preserved, the shark is then tossed back into the water where it sinks to the bottom of the ocean and dies. The fins are subsequently bought and sold in the fin trade and shipped by major transporter, FedEx. FedEx’s policy is that it’s allowed as long as it’s packaged properly for human consumption.

UPS recently declared that they would no longer participate in the shark fin trade, and now it’s time for FedEx to stand up for animal rights.

All life is important to me....i see ads on tv for krill and it needs to stop... whales, some of the largest creatures on the planet, can survive by eating krill because they eat so many of them. To put this in perspective, consider a single grain of rice, which is positively puny in comparison to a human. We do not need to be processing this product at the risk of killing whales by taking away their krill BECAUSE OF HUMANITIES SELFISHNESS. All life affects all life. And to kill a shark for shark fin soup is an abomination. We are killing our wildlife on land, in the air and in the seas...IT HAS GOT TO STOP!

I don't how this started and why it's been going on but it's not been very good or healthy on the shark population and at this point and time it just has to be noted. It has to be important now, not later or then what would be the point of a life in danger? danger doesn't wait...time doesn't wait and anything like this is pretty much to be noted as important. If we can't or don't take something seriously the worst that can happen is an animals life that will be extinguished before anything was or could be done in time. We don't even always know how much time we actually have. We are responsible of all else how we choose to live in this world and what happens next. Animals lives are in our control and domain more then their own when we come into play and that is when we have to be aware of how much we control and what to do if something is lacking in this department in either understanding or actions. So if something needs to be done and it's not the sharks aren't going to make it and it won't be something you can take back. It's not good where certain things are going. But we can see this usually without it being a surprise and therefore control it, simply put, before anything gets out of hand but we have hands.
