European Shark Week 2009
European Shark Week 2009
Predator Turned Prey

People across Europe came together to call for stronger shark protection during the third European Shark Week. Over 300 events and activities were held by supporters in 15 countries: Belgium, France, Germany, Finland, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Malta, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the UK.

93,000 Europeans signed our petition calling on calling on José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, Prime Minister of Spain, to take the courageous step of becoming a leader in shark conservation. The petitions were presented to Mr. Polanco Mata's-the Director of the Secretariat del Mar, at a meeting where the Shark Alliance urged Spain to end its opposition to improving the EU ban on finning and lead the EU toward a more effective finning regulation.
