Stop the Wasteful Fishery of Shark Finning – Palau

With recent proposed legislation that would decrease protection of Palau’s shark populations, Palau has the monumental opportunity to take a stand against shark fishing and be an example to the world of how healthy marine ecosystems can lead to a thriving tourist industry. In 2004, Palau received international recognition for passing legislation that protected shark populations and outlawed shark finning. This legislation has helped to maintain Palau’s biodiversity and beautiful, healthy reefs that draw tourists in from all across the globe.
