Sign the Petition to Urge Singapore Airlines to STOP shipping shark fins

As Singapore Airlines, is the world's most awarded airline; with commitment of diligent service to customers and a company that firmly believes in supporting programs that benefit the communities as an essential part of being a good corporate citizen, we hope that Singapore Airlines will help protect and preserve the well-being of sharks in our ocean. Sharks are sentinel species and they are barometers for a healthy ocean environment.

We urgently call upon Singapore Airlines' to cease the transportation of shark fins and shark-related products on all Singapore Airlines' flights as soon as possible. This is essential to cut the supply chain of the shark fin trade.

Please sign and share this petition. If you are a Kris Flyer member and wish to include your name, Kris Flyer status in our letter that will be hand delivered to Singapore Airline, please send your name and Kris Flyer status to info@OGSociety.org
Your view and business is important to Singapore Airlines.

Signed,

Singapore Air is one of the top airlines in the world - the airlines service many Asian cities including Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Jakarta and several major cities in China - these are the major shark fins consumption centers; we need to curb supply to these cities. 

Hong Kong Government data indicates that over 1,162 tonnes of shark fin were imported into Hong Kong in 2012, of which 14.1% was by air cargo. Of that percentage a substantial amount would have been flown into Hong Kong on Singapore Airlines' flights. According to a July 2013 report by the global wildlife trade monitoring network Traffic, "Singapore was the fourth biggest exporter of shark fins between 2000 and 2009".
