    Greetings Scuba Board Members

    The Shark Safe project is a new grass roots shark conservation group. As divers I am sure you are very aware that shark populations are threatened globally. I am also sure that you are aware that the main source of this threat is over fishing for shark fins used in shark fin soup. I am not here to preach to the choir! I am not asking you to sign another petition!

    I am asking you to join us and take real action to help save sharks!

    We are organizing a shark finning protest demonstration in San Francisco's Chinatown on Sunday January 25th 2009.

    Anyone in the San Francisco area are welcome to join the protest.

    There are over 100 restaurants in San Francisco's Chinatown that offer shark fin soup on their menus.

    We are only asking them to remove one item from thier menus.

    That simple act can save thousands of sharks.

    There are other groups taking up the cause all over the country. Please, as concerned divers join us and help us save sharks today.

    Please forward this message to your members and friends.

    Yours in sharks,

    Lawrence Groth
