Shark Fin Sales Elimination Act Becomes law
The Moore Charitable Foundation is thrilled to see the Shark Fin Sales Elimination Act finally become law. Thanks to bipartisan support in both chambers of Congress, and advocacy from groups like Oceana, the Shark Conservation Fund and Oceans 5, this legislation was included as part of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which was just signed into law. This legislative victory is an incredible way to wrap up 2022, adding to the recent shark conservation success at this year’s Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) 19th Conference of Parties (CoP19).
