IEMANYA OCEANICA campaign: Example letter to Las Vegas Sands Corporation
This campaign has been successful! So their is no need to write to this restaurant - however you may wish to write to any other restaurant which sells shark fin soup, you could use the template below or write your own letter.
I am a member and supporter of Iemanya Oceanica, a non-profit group whose mission is the international conservation of sharks, rays and their habitats. I urge you to rethink your decision to serve shark fin soup at Jade in your Palazzo Hotel, and any other establishments you own.
I make this appeal because during the last few decades, the demand for shark fins to provide for the shark fin soup industry has increased at an alarming rate. Due to this highly unsustainable and uncontrolled fishery, many shark populations are being driven to extinction. Take a look at the facts:
-It is estimated that 100 million sharks
are killed each year for their fins through shark finning.
I hope that the Las Vegas Sands Corp. can live up to its claim of being an upstanding corporate citizen by refusing to serve shark fin soup at any of its establishments. By taking a stand, you can show the world that you are concerned about the fate of the environment.
Be the active community partner you say you are. Do not serve shark fin soup.
