January Jones, best known for her role on the hit series Mad Men, had teamed up with Oceana to promote a campaign to protect sharks. The actress is working with the org as a spokesperson to help pass The Shark Conservation Act in Congress — which would implement stronger protection for sharks by requiring that sharks be landed whole with the fins still attached to the bodies. The Federal legislation would also allow the U.S. to take action against countries whose shark finning requirements are not consistent with those in the United States.

“I have been entranced by sharks ever since I can remember.” said Jones. “They have roamed the oceans for millions of years, but now scientists have found that shark populations are now crashing around the world largely because tens of millions of sharks are killed by commercial fishing each year. We should be scared FOR sharks.”

Jones recently went with Oceana to the Bimini Biological Field Station in the Bahamas to swim with sharks and get some up-close encounters. You can view her PSAs for the org — as well as find out more on how you can help — here.
