Shark finning banned in New Zealand

November 10, 2013

The cruel practice of shark finning will be banned in New Zealand waters under a government rule.

Jump over to this article on Kiwi Kids Vids to see what is involved with shark finning. 

Conservation Minister Nick Smith made the announcement on a Wellington beach over the weekend.

Dr Smith said sharks might not be as cuddly as kiwi or as cute as dolphins but they were an important part of the country’s marine diversity.

There are 113 species of sharks within New Zealand.

The Government proposal would take effect over the next two years.
