“Each year, fins from up to 73 million sharks are used for shark’s fin soup,” came the shocking revelation from WildAid China CEO Lu Bo. This was food for thought for guests at the opening of On Sharks and Humanity, the inaugural exhibition of the new Parkview Museum Singapore in Parkview Square. Conceived in 2014 by Parkview Arts Action, which was founded by George Wong, the executive chairman of Hong Kong Parkview Group, the travelling global exhibition brings forth the topic of shark protection and ocean conservation. VIPs and business executives, including Palau president Tommy E Remengesau Jr—who was conferred the On Sharks and Humanity Award 2016 for his vision, innovation and leadership in making a positive impact on the environment—took a walkthrough of the exhibition, before adjourning to the Atlas bar in the building’s lobby for a cocktail reception.
