Day 319 5/10/14: 4th Grader to Obama: Save the Sharks!

(Re-blogged from White Shark Interest Group–Please sign and share!¬†)

I am Anusha- a 4th grader from Texas. I am doing a project on raising awareness of shark protection among school children and working to stop the shark finning trade. Finally, after a lot of research, I started this petition to save sharks.

Please take time to sign this petition and please circulate it in your circles.

Thank you.

Here is the petition:

Hello friends, I, am doing a project on awareness and education on endangered sharks and wants to really take this big step to bring this change in all the schools. Please sign this petition and help me reach my goal to help the sharks worldwide. I believe that EVERY KID CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

Thank you!  Anusha

At my writing class today, a wonderful woman who knew that I write about sharks, said I ought to find out why the moose are disappearing, which led us both to remark on extraordinary fact that we are living through a mass extinction that, in day to day life, few people really talk about.

Here’s a gesture against forgetting:

Although CITES granted protection for hammerheads, manta rays, white tips and porbeagles, five countries (Japan, Iceland, Denmark, Yemen and Guyana) still refuse to recognize these treaties.

Please sign this petition to ask President Obama to apply sanctions against these countries.
