Amazon is a global company that supports many charities and conservation groups such as WWF and Ocean Conservancy. However, they allow the sale of shark products on their U.S.A platform from vulnerable and endangered species such as the Spiny dogfish shark and Mako shark. These items range from shark pups in bottles, Mako teeth and Mako jaws to supplements created with chondroitin aka shark cartilage.
Amazon professes to be a company with good morals that supports sustainable living in order to aid our planet. Allowing the sale of these shark-based products not only send the wrong message, it directly goes against the ethics they claim they have. Sharks are at a critical point, with populations having declined by 70% over the past 60 years. If we don’t stand up for this vital group of species, our oceans ecosystems will collapse.
Please add your name to the petition in order to show your support for our mission, encourage Amazon to BAN shark products and in turn, protect the oceans that are so important to the overall health of the planet.
