For the past two years, the Stop Finning - EU Organization has been collection signatures of support for the EU Citizens' Initiative to strengthen the EU's shark Finning laws. The support period has now closed and here are now the final results.
As most of you know, in my last update of the 13th. January I stated that only seven countries had reached their quota target and only 542000 out of the 1,000000 signatures have been collected.
I am glad to report that in the last two weeks, there has been a huge response and the final results read as follows:
17 countries have reached their quota: Austria, France, Germany, Hungary, Malta, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, Croatia, Finland, Denmark, Ireland, Greece, Czechia, Luxembourg, Portugal and Spain.
A total of 1,202,122 signatures collected.
I want to thank each and everyone that signed up, for their support and look forward to next step... the presentation of this initiative to the EU.
