The Beijing Summer Olympics are just weeks away from invading the media, and U.S. super swimmer Tara Kirk is using the Olympic spotlight to draw awareness to the horrible-sounding practice of shark-finning. Apparently shark fin soup is very popular in China, and the harvest method is to catch the shark, cut off the fin, and throw it back in the sea to die. Soup or salad?  Salad!!!

WildAid is a non-profit working to end illegal wildlife trade, and they have made several public service announcements with Olympic athletes to promote wildlife protection, watch Tara’s video here:
