hk eco banquets?

香港政府終於決定立法禁止於公務酬酢的菜單中出現藍鰭吞拿魚、髮菜和魚翅。藍鰭吞拿魚的數目自1950年已下降了96%,開採髮菜在沙漠地區造成嚴重破壞,殺鯊取鰭這冷血行為也早該立法禁止。香港是世界上其中一個最大的魚翅市場,希望這次政府以身作則會有助提高更多關注,令生態及動物的情況能盡快得到改善!

hong kong government has finally announced to ban serving bluefin tuna, fat choy and shark fin at official functions. the population of bluefin tuna has dropped 96%, harvesting fat choy has furthered erosion and desertification, and cruel shark finning should be banned long ago! hong kong is one of the biggest market for shark fin in the world; hopefully hong kong government’s decision this time could bring more awareness to the wildlife and eco problems, and the situation could be improved soon!
