Bill devised a successful strategy that led to the passage of a California ban on the sale of shark fin that contributed to a 70% decline in shark fin consumption. He also overcame intense opposition from the gun lobby and passed legislation protecting condors from lead ammunition poisoning and he is currently working on passing a ban on ivory trafficking.
