MASSIVE WIN FOR SHARKS at CITES today! 🎉🦈 The requiem sharks proposal passed, listing 54 endangered or critically endangered shark species (19, plus 35 lookalikes) under CITES Appendix II. This provides requiem sharks—who are sought after for their meat and fins—better protections from international trade.

A HUGE thank you to the government of Panama, Wildlife Conservation Society, Humane Society International, and all who were pivotal in making this listing happen!
