Continuing her advocacy on behalf of sharks, January Jones spoke up again for some of the biggest fishes in the sea.

In 2009 she started her work with the conservation organization Oceana, even going so far as to meet with members of Congress to try to pass legislation to protect them. Earlier this year she swam with whale sharks and asked the world to stop being afraid of sharks, and instead, start worrying about what we’re doing to the ever diminishing population of the ocean’s perfect predator.

Jones says in her PSA, “You should be scared for whale sharks. Tens of millions of sharks are caught for their fins every year. Most, like whale sharks, are completely uninterested in us. So its silly to be scared of them. We should be scared for them.”

With states like California and Hawaii outlawing the sale of shark fins, we’re well on our way to finally acting responsibly towards these creatures, but there is a lot of work still to be done.

Check out January Jones’ PSA below.
