When I read Grace's research about the tradition of shark fin soup, it really interested me that she decided to look at the issue from a cultural standpoint and not just an environmental one. Grace taught us that it is important to understand Chinese culture when tackling the issue of shark finning. I immediately made a connection to the post that I did about the Lucky Iron Fish project. Christopher Charles has reflected that the success of the Lucky Iron Fish was due to his understanding of Cambodian culture. When dealing with issues that concern a culture (in this case, shark finning and iron deficiency) it is important to understand said culture on a deep level to create change.
