Polar bears too. I thought CITES was something different, but it's just a typical political organisation.

Since many establishments don't know...or decline to reveal...what species of tuna they sell, shouldn't we just stop eating it wholesale? To me it seems just as malicious to deliberately not name what species of tuna is being sold in a product/meal, and hide behind anonymity and naivety, than to 'buck up' and take the effort to tell the truth. Just a thought.
There is no limit to what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
