Ullapool Shark Ambassador

Finlay Pringle

Environmental Campaigner

Born in 2007, began campaigning aged 10


Hi, I’m Finlay Pringle, marine conservationist, climate change activist, Sea Shepherd and Ullapool Shark Ambassador, most people call me Fin.

Sharks are my all-time favourite marine creatures. I am very passionate about protecting them as they are very mis-understood and under serious threat world wide. Sharks only kill a handful of people each year but humans kill 100 million sharks every year. 73 million of these sharks being used to make shark fin soup. Many of the sharks used to make this soup have their fins chopped off and are then thrown back into the sea alive to die a slow, painful death. Rather than being scared of sharks we should be scared for sharks and doing more to protect them. I have campaigned to try and stop sharks being kept in captivity and I am totally against all marine aquariums that also keep cetaceans in tanks. In 2018 I was made a shark ambassador by Sea Shepherd Conservation Society in recognition of my campaign to highlight the cruelty of Bear Grylls exploiting sharks at his new adventure park in Birmingham. I look forward to continuing to be a positive voice for sharks for many years. My latest campaign is to help ban the selling of shark fin soup and shark meat in restaurants in the UK and to spread the message to get shark-finning banned world wide. Thanks for visiting my site, Fin
