Never skip an opportunity to use your voice for those without one! SB 2079 passed its first hearing and we are one step closer to protecting Hawaii's sharks from fishing in state waters! Thank you to all the passionate people who came and testified in support, the senators for having this hearing, and the people from around the world who took the time to submit written testimony! Your voices were heard! It's amazing that more and more places are starting to realize the ecological importance of these animals. There was zero opposition to this bill moving forward! That alone is absolutely incredible!
