Anchoring the anti-shark's fin message

Visitor Dass Moses holding up a cardboard cut-out of a shark at Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal yesterday. -- ST PHOTO: CHEW SENG KIM Travellers at Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal on Saturday were greeted by sharks - made of cardboard. The cut-outs are part of a campaign to persuade Singaporeans not to eat shark's fin - used mainly in soups in Chinese cuisine. The campaign, called Say No To Shark's Fin, is a joint effort by conservation group WWF and the Singapore Cruise Centre (SCC). Booths with information about shark conservation will be located at the terminal until Feb 12. Spokesmen from the WWF and SCC said they hope to bring the message of marine conservation to the cruise centre's passengers, especially during the Chinese New Year holidays.
