It is a unique opportunity for animal lovers to show their support for the thousands of creatures threatened by the soup.

Why should you care that over one million sharks were killed last year alone for the sake of shark fin soup?

From email from Louis Ng, ACRES dated 8 Apr 09

Why should you care that over one million sharks were killed last year alone for the sake of shark fin soup?

Because this is not just about sharks.

When sharks die, the oceans die.

Latest research shows that when sharks are removed from the ecosystem, the entire marine food chain starts to collapse, and takes with it the food resources on which large populations of humans depend.

It all happens under the surface and out of sight, so we never get to see it. But now we can.

A ‘first-of-its-kind’ ACRES Event.

Join ACRES for a revealing display of the devastating domino effect caused by the disappearance of sharks.

This event to launch ACRES’ campaign against shark fin soup will be held at Hong Lim Park (Speaker’s Corner) on 18 April 2009 from 2pm to 4pm.

It is a unique opportunity for animal lovers to show their support for the thousands of creatures threatened by the soup.

Why you need to be there.

If you have ever eaten shark fin, please come and discover why the practice is so destructive.

If you love nature and the earth, please come learn about this catastrophe under the sea.

Even if you couldn’t care less about sharks or nature, please come find out how this will change your life. Because like it or not, all of us are eventually going to pay the price for Asia’s ravenous indulgence in this soup.
