Shark attack victims speak to the U.N. on behalf of sharks

Shark attack survivors visited the United Nations yesterday to speak out on behalf of sharks in hopes of convincing the U.N. to adopt curbs on shark finning, according to The New York Daily News. The Pew Environment Group organized the group of shark attack victims who are also calling to an end to fishing for threatened and near-threatened shark species.

Debbie Salamone, Michael Coots, and Paul de Gelder were featured on CBS’s The Early Show and talked about their encounters and their participation in the Pew Environment Group’s rally at the U.N.

Last year, the Pew Environment Group organized a similar effort in which shark attack victims spoke with the U.S. congress about shark conservation.
