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!’
