Great white sharks, after spotting prey, will lurk to deeper waters directly underneath and jet straight up to attack from the bottom.
This is how most great white sharks have been observed attacking their prey.
went better than expected
Dear Cathay Pacific,
I applaud you for your decision to ban the transport of shark fin products on your carriers and subsidiary airline Dragon Air.
Anti-shark fin campaigners estimated that you flew 50% of the air cargo trade into Hong Kong each year, equating up to 650 tonnes of shark fins. You claimed it was less than this, but no matter how much it was, you’ve stopped. Thank you.
Whether it’s because of the petition that was signed in July, or your years of research into the matter, you’ve stopped. Thank you.
Your decision means that you’ve restricted the availability of shark fin products in Hong Kong and mainland China. It means you are part of many companies that are helping to turn the tide against the unsustainable shark fin industry. Once again, thank you.
Everyone (because saving sharks is saving ourselves).
