Kids stand up for the Great White Shark – workshops in Chinese kindergarden

So here I am, in China. This country never stops to amaze and surprize me, day after day.  I appreciate the culture so much, the attitude of people, their hard work and dedication, their ability to rest, dance, enjoy life.

However China is also one of the biggest market for the shark fin soup.

I have seen huge dried fins, belonging probably to whale sharks. They were displayed in the 5 star hotel as a symbol of wealth.

I am volunteering in a kindergarden in Changsha city and today I did a little presentation about sharks and shark finning. Later on we encouraged kids to draw the biggest predatory fish – The Great White Shark. We are going to prepare a huge board with all the drawings and an important message to parents and teachers:

‘Say no to the Shark Fin Soup!’

About Zofia Drapella

I always seek adventures, but want them to be meaningful (usually related to science, marine biology, teaching). I so often find myself in the most amazing circumstances and incredible places with inspiring people. I genuinely consider myself to be the luckiest person in the world... I love nature, oceans, mountains, jungles. I try my best to capture what I have the privilege to see/experience and share it with others.
