'True Blood' Actress Kristin Bauer Shows Support For Shark Conservation Act

After watching the documentary Sharkwater — a film that exposes the brutal shark finning industry — True Blood actress Kristin Bauer decided to take action and speak up for sharks.

“Sharks have a severe image problem,” writes Bauer on The Huffington Post. “Most people have probably never seen the beauty of a shark up close, but I have been fortunate enough to dive with sharks in Belize and Cancun. They are stunning, prehistoric animals that have been swimming the ocean for 400 million years.”

Thanks to the high demand for shark fin soup — a popular dish in Asia — tens of millions of sharks are killed each year for their fins. Bauer is working to stop this mass killing by supporting the Shark Conversation Act.

“As you read this, there is a bill awaiting a vote in the U.S. Senate that would eliminate in U.S waters the barbaric practice of amputating shark fins at sea, and make our country an international leader in shark conservation,” says Bauer.

The act, which is scheduled to be voted on in the next few weeks, would require that sharks be landed with their fins still attached. It also closes a loophole related to the transfer of fins at sea. What’s more, the bill allows the U.S. to take actions against countries with weaker protections laws.
