Grass Roots Shark Conservation - California Style

 By the numbers:

2 - The primary movers behind Spinning to End Finning

73 million - The number of sharks harvested for the shark fin trade each year (give or take)

1268 miles - The distance from Colorado to Kentucky

Grass roots California based shark conservation initiative Spinning to End Finning will be holding a fundraising event in Paso Robles, California to promote the group’s bike ride from Colorado to Kentucky this summer to raise awareness of sharks and funds to support shark protection projects in Costa Rica.
