Endangered Turtles and Sharks Lose Out

Thu, February 09, 2012

Sad news today, my friends. Remember those 800 letters that we sent? Or those 35 marine conservation organizations that supported us in asking the Marine Stewardship Council to stay true to their cause of protecting the oceans and endangered and sensitive species? Well, it looks like the MSC didn’t listen.

Marine Stewardship Council update

Tue, January 31, 2012

Can you believe this is still going on? For almost TWO YEARS we have been telling the Marine Stewardship Council that people won’t trust a green ‘eco-label’ that greenwashes fisheries who kill sharks and sea turtles.

On the Road

Fri, January 20, 2012

I’ve had a pretty adventurous life for a blue shark- everything from participating in International fisheries meetings in Paris last year to narrowly escaping a hook from a swordfish longline. But getting on a bicycle in Gijon, Spain, and hitting the long road to London, England has to be the wildest experience yet!
