This week celebrates a cause that lies close to our hearts, even though the location does not. 9 – 15 September marks Shark Awareness Week in New Zealand and they are celebrating it with flare!
The family event stretches over the whole week and includes talks by various Shark experts and lovers. Various displays including live New Zealand Sharks and preserved specimens will be on display and fun activities will be held for the kids.
The week starts off today with the painting of a mural that will be approximately 50m long and 6m high. The mural will depict the estimated 190 Sharks that die every minute. The main drive behind this year’s Shark Awareness Week is to rally the NZ Government to ban Shark Finning. This cruel practice has been banned in over a 100 countries, yet remains legal in New Zealand.
The organisations involved, making up the New Zealand Shark Alliance, is hopeful that this week will raise awareness for Sharks and drive home the message that the NZ Shark Alliance is ready to fight for the banning of Shark Finning.
