Fiji: Action Alert - Public Stakeholder Consultation about Shark Protection!


I've just received the following e-mail message from the Fiji Shark Sanctuary campaign.

Sorry for extreme late notice, this has only just come to us and we are running around trying to raise supporters.

The most important day of the campaign to create a Fiji Shark Sanctuary is TOMORROW.
If anyone can mobilise this quickly, please do - WE NEED YOUR HELP.

A public consultation will be held tomorrow, May 2, 2012, at 10:00 AM at the Suva Holiday Inn

This is how you can help:

  • Attend the public consultation.
  • Bring two friends to the public consultation with you.
  • Bring a letter or make a verbal statement of support to the public consultation.

Please come and show that there are many more supporters than detractors.
Many thanks in advance.
