28 Aug Debate and Public Forum on Sharks and Sharks' Fin

Postby green baron » Fri Aug 21, 2009 10:21 pm

Date : 28th August 2009, Friday, 7.30pm-10pm
Location : Training Room P303, Spring Singapore, 2 Bukit Merah Central, Singapore 159835.
Admission: Free.

Are sharks killed mainly for their fins, their meat or both? Some believe that it is western propaganda that sharks are killed mainly for their fins, saying instead that they are slaughtered chiefly for their meat. However, the majority viewpoint is that the demand for sharks' fin is the key factor driving sharks towards extinction. Hear both sides of the story and watch the exciting debate between proponents of the two camps.

The debaters include Dr Giam Choo Hoo, Regional Representative for Asia (Alternate) for CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) Animals Committee, and Louis Ng, Executive Director of ACRES (Animal Concerns Research and Education Society).

This debate and public forum will be chaired by Dr Shawn Lum, President of Nature Society (Singapore), and is open to the public and the media.
