Britain’s biggest scuba diving agency BSAC, British Sub Aqua Club, has been inspired by Bite-Back’s unwavering determination to make Britain’s restaurants shark fin-free that it has decided to champion the charity throughout 2014.
It means a further 30,000 divers will get to know all about our ‘Hacked Off!’ campaign and how they can encourage their local restaurants to remove shark fin soup from menus. By way of introduction to its club members, BSAC has published a four page article in the current edition of SCUBA magazine outlining our work and our ambition.
Campaign director for Bite-Back, Graham Buckingham, said: “This new partnership is such a wonderful and welcome boost for our campaigns. The Club’s support is the perfect fit for our programmes. Now Britain’s biggest shark fin soup campaign is underpinned by the country’s largest dive community – how good is that?”
BSAC club members have been invited to alert Bite-Back to any restaurants selling shark fin soup; to share the charity’s 45 second TV commercial and sign up to its social media channels too.
In the coming weeks, Bite-Back will announce future plans and events that involve BSAC members along with Bite-Back supporters across the country.
