Petitions & Pledges
An increasing number of Governments around the world are considering implementing various shark conservation bills. These ONLY work with signatures – lots of them! Plus, making a personal pledge never to consume shark products is a great step but it’s even greater if you can publicly promote that decision to encourage more support for the cause.
CAVEAT: Please note that HKSF campaigns against shark finning purely on the basis of environmental sustainability. The views of other organizations are not necessarily the same as ours.
Tao Heung Group: STOP selling shark fin soup!
It is estimated that over 100 million sharks are killed every year and Tao Heung is one of Hong Kong’s LARGEST restaurant groups with over 80 restaurants in Hong Kong AND 80 in mainland China still serving shark fin soup.
The company has resisted the trend in Hong Kong to drop shark fin soup from their set menus, ignoring the will of many Hong Kong people who are against this cruel, unsustainable and out-dated tradition.
Is Tao Heung going to wait until sharks go extinct before it admits that there is a problem?
Tao Heung has a firm corporate responsibility to end this cruel and unsustainable practice to save sharks and our oceans by immediately removing shark fin soup from all its menus, especially its set menus. Just as Hong Kong consumers have a responsibility to stop eating shark fin, restaurant groups like Tao Heung also have an equal corporate responsibility to stop selling it.
If you feel as strongly about this issue as HKSF does, please kindly
1. sign these 2 petitions AND
2. send the decision makers an email telling them what you think!
Hong Kong Shark Foundation
Stop wildlife traffickers using our city
1,900 metric tonnes of wildlife products were seized in Hong Kong between 2015 and 2019. Equating to the loss of at least 1,700 elephants, 98,000 pangolins and many other species like sharks! Despite the huge volumes involved and their high values, wildlife crime in Hong Kong is mostly under investigated and under policed.

HKSF works across a diverse range of events and campaigns, some of which would be highly appropriate for corporate sponsorship. For example, Gala Dinner: We are currently exploring hosting a gala dinner with a Chinese banquet serving a celebrated shark-fin alternative and we are looking for venue, catering, entertainment and marketing/media sponsors.
