Today we won a big victory for silky sharks!
After years of hard work, Turtle Island and our international allies have won increased protections for silky sharks at CITES. They are now listed under Appendix II of this international treaty agreement.
I personally want to thank every single one of you who has taken action on behalf of silky sharks – whether by signing one of our petitions or making a gift to provide us with the resources to advocate on behalf of these amazing animals.
I was proud to be able to speak on your behalf in front of the entire CITES meeting.
We still have a lot of work ahead of us, but I want to take this moment to celebrate this hard won victory.

PS – The battle is far from over.
We still need to win changes at the regional fisheries and national level.
So please consider making a charitable donation of $35 or more today to Turtle Island so we can continue to be on the frontline of defending sharks and our oceans.
