as if i needed another reason to boycott, disney. boing-boing posted a tid-bit yesterday about disney hong-kong. apparently greenpeace and the worldwide fund for nature are protesting disney's decision to serve shark fin soup at banquets. millions of sharks each year are caught, have thier fins sliced off, then are tossed back into the ocean.
disney says that while they are aware of environmental concerns, they are EQUALLY sensitive to cultural traditions and so will continue to serve the shark fin soup.
how does a cultural delicacy outweigh killing so many and attributing to species getting closer and closer to the endangered list? corporations like disney care about one thing only, making money.
