We attended a very meaningful event last Saturday - the My Fin My life photo expo and photography prize giving ceremony at The School, Jaya One. We have seen students, divers and photographers gathered there to witness the prize presentation ceremony of the School’s My Fin My Life Photography Contest at around 2.30PM on 26th Nov 2016.
The event was held with the aim to create awareness to say no to shark fins. We are fully support this, and wondering how many of you still consuming shark fins? The removal of shark fins is very cruel, the sharks returned to the ocean without their fins are often still alive; unable to move effectively, they sink to the bottom of the ocean and die of suffocation or are eaten by other predators. It is also create extensive implications for marine systems, Imagine there’s no more shark to eat the big fishes, the small fishes will be gone eventually as they are eaten by all the big fishes.
Actually, shark fins is tasteless, so why are we still consuming it?

In line with the WWF-Malaysia goals, the School by Jaya One embarked on a creative journey to instill the idea of shark conservation via the love of photography.
