Are They Reading my Blog at the NYT?

Literally a day after I published my last post about the need to protect the world's shark population, the New York Times ran an article called Making Headway in the Movement to Protect the World's Sharks. What great timing. From what is written there, it's still going to be a long road for shark populations to recover, but some encouraging efforts are under way to curb the worldwide hunt for shark fins, not the least of which is a publicity campaign to educate people what the consequences are of eating that coveted bowl of shark fin soup (even if one of those consequences is that there might soon no longer be any shark fin soup to be had, one way or another).
