    Forgive me, dear PPDer's,

    Not strictly PI, but very important to those who care about the oceans and their denizens there's a petition underway agains shark-finning.

    It may achieve nothing apart from raising awareness, but that is in itself an achievement.

    http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/400108473?ltl=1174973128

    This is being promoted in at least one other forum, but let's give it a push here.

    Anyone feeling the same way about this practise, please feel free to popularise this link elsewhere.

    As an added bonus, you get to find out my middle name as signature 2,901 on the petition.

    MODS - can we please sticky this petition somewhere it will get more notice? I imagine it would get more attention coming from one of you...

    Edit. I have also PM'd a couple of Senior Mods to find out if SB has a policy on promoting this sort of thing. Will advise ASAP.

    Well, you'll just have to try again at home then, won't you :)

    Seriously though, no idea why. My office firewall's normally red hot, but thiswent through fine.
