MARCH 30, 2013
The island nation of Palau established the world’s first shark sanctuary two years ago, with over 240,000 square miles protected. Now in collaboration with the Pew Environment Group, the Marshall Islands have announced a shark sanctuary of their own. In addition to creating the shark sanctuary, the Marshall Islands have also banned entirely any trade in shark products and of course commercial shark fishing is also banned.
