Celebrate the Protection of Mantas and Sharks


Join the social media storm to celebrate the CITES protection of manta rays and five species of sharks

Tomorrow, September 14, marks the day that the CITES Appendix II listing for both manta ray species and five shark species come into effect. To celebrate the occasion, the Manta Trust, SOS - Save Our Species, WildAid, the IUCN and CITES have worked together to create a collaborative social media campaign, that they're titling with the hashtag #Yay4SharksNRays. The whole campaign is build around the social media tool Thunderclap.

To add your voice to the Thunderclap campaign, sign up and donate a Tweet/Facebook post that will be posted automatically tomorrow when a single message is tweeted/posted at the same time by everyone that signed up to the campaign in an attempt to broadcast the message to as many people as possible.
