Senator Burr (R-NC) needs to hear from you! He is the ONLY senator blocking the Shark Conservation Act of 2009, that would close loopholes on shark finning and require fishermen to bring sharks into port with their fins naturally attached. This would diminish their interest in catching endangered sharks and give many s...pecies a chance to survive.

PLEASE take two minutes of your time to write Senator Burr a note demanding that he co-sponsor the bill. It has already passed in the House and now must pass in the Senate. If it does not, the entire process must be repeated next year, but the 100 MILLION SHARKS killed each year for shark fin soup can't wait that long! Tell your family, tell your friends, tell other dive shops and especially tell anyone you know living in North Carolina. We must act NOW!!!

I'm off to Capitol Hill to meet with various senators to continue pushing this through before this Congress ends in December. Wish me luck!
