The Shark Alliance

I just got back from Paris where I spoke at the launch of the Shark Alliance and was SO thrilled with the response people had. It was cold and rainy and people still made the effort to come hear about the global shark crisis. I am so passionate about this issue and it was fantastic to see how people terrorized by Jaws actually became concerned for the continued survival of these amazing animals. Even my brother Philippe, who came with me and already knows a lot about sharks, came away from this event more concerned and enlightened about the shark issue. We are both more dedicated than ever to try to stop the massacre of over 75 million sharks a year for shark fin soup.
