This Wedding Season, WildAid Urges all Thai citizens to Celebrate with #NoSharkFin

The “Celebrate with No Shark Fin (ฉลองไม่ฉลาม)” campaign is an initiative of WildAid, a non profit organization, urging the public to stop serving and consuming shark fin at weddings and any other celebratory events in Thailand. Please view a 30 seconds video message “Making of a wedding” starring Pong Nawat Kulrattanarak, Thailand’s superstar and WildAid ambassador to promote the campaign.

WildAid’s 2017 Shark Fin Demand in Thailand survey found that more than half of urban Thais have eaten shark fin while alarmingly 61% of all respondents plan to consume it again in the future. The studies also found that shark fin is consumed most often at weddings (72%), family meals at restaurants (61%) and business meetings (47%).

“As weddings are auspicious events and a new beginning, one should not embark on this journey over the cost of endangering another species, such as sharks. Sharks are vital to the balance of the ocean’s ecosystem and we need to realize that before it’s too late.” said Nawat Kulrattanarak.

An estimated 100 million sharks are killed every year and fins from up to 73 million of those end up in shark fin soup. And, many consumers are unaware of the cruel practice of "finning" behind each bowl of shark fin soup: a shark’s fins are often cut off at sea and the shark is thrown back into the water to suffer and die slowly.

“Shark fin is not mentioned in Chinese literature as auspicious (มงคล) even once. It is only served due to the belief that it’s a luxurious dish and gives status to the hosts. But, these beliefs do not match today’s world and they are creating a huge loss to our environment and needs to be ended,” said Master Viroj Tangvarnich, an expert on Chinese culture.

WildAid urges and invites all couples, families and everyone to join us in the movement of saying no to shark fin and all shark-related menu. Please help us protect the oceans by making #NoSharkFin #ฉลองไม่ฉลาม the new norm for all occasions, because when the buying stops, the killing can too.
