ABSTRACT
The article reports on "Help Give Sharks a Fighting Chance," a signature campaign of Project AWARE Foundation to protect endangered shark species. The disappearing of eight species including the porbeagle, spiny dogfish and sandbar sharks, is pointed out. The campaign is described to be taken to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), a treaty whose vote on trade protection becomes enforceable. Project AWARE's launching in the summer of 2011 aims to link community action with international policies on shark protection.
