Exhibition of live sharks in Slovakia

on May 15, 2015

I was minding my own business walking to the hairdressers when I saw this poster advertising the exhibition of live sharks in a salt water aquarium in Piešt’any next week.

Apparently the guy who owns the exhibition claims to have “rescued” the sharks from the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico – which begs a number of questions about how the sharks got from there to here. I’m pretty sure it’s illegal to just scoop up some sharks and transport them from the USA or Mexico to Europe.

Anyway I was so angry, disgusted and upset to see beautiful marine creatures being abused for profit in this way that I’ve started a petition asking the Mayor of Piešt’any to ban this event. You can sign the petition here. Please also share it on whatever social media you use to spread awareness of what is going on.

The organisation behind this event is called Zive Zraloky and they have a Facebook page here.

Sharks deserve better than this. No animal that is rescued should be abused in this way for profit.
