US Actress Maggie Q swims with an endangered whale shark off Cancun, Mexico. As an ambassador for international conservation group WildAid, Maggie Q is in Cancun this week to publicize the plight of sharks threatened by demand for shark fin soup in the same week that China announced a ban on shark fin from all official banquets.
Maggie Q plays the main character in the television show Nikita. WildAid reduces demand for the products of endangered species by targeting consumers with public service announcements and education initiatives. Learn more at http://www.wildaid.org/.
Other WildAid ambassadors include Yao Ming, Larry King, Hayden Panettiere, and Jared Leto.
