Animal-loving singer Ke$Ha is throwing her support behind a bill to prevent the possession and sale of shark fins.
The TiK ToK hitmaker, who is an outspoken campaigner for animal rights, was thrilled to learn senators in Maryland recently approved landmark legislation aiming to protect sharks by banning the sale of their fins.

Now she’s urging her fans to continue campaigning so the proposal will be passed in Maryland’s House of Delegates.

In a post on her page, the pop star writes, “Maryland Senate votes to ban the sale of shark fins! ANIMALS – Keep up the pressure to stop this cruel practise!!!”

Ke$ha isn’t the only star who is passionate about saving the shark population – Bo Derek, Leonardo DiCaprio and Edward Norton have also spoken out against the practise of slicing off shark fins.
