Good News For Sharks

Regular readers will know I've been supporting Fizza Abdulrasul's campaign to stop the slaughter of sharks. Her paintings have really brought the message home: CLICK, CLICK, CLICK. Now here's the good news for sharks. The Republic of Palau - an island nation in the Pacific Ocean - is to create the world's first "shark sanctuary", banning all commercial shark fishing in its waters, which cover roughly 230,000 square miles of ocean. President Toribiong will also call for a global ban on shark-finning. Nice one, Palau. (Above is a hammerhead shark, photo the Shark Alliance.)

Thank you. Yes, I post environmental campaigns of all sorts, especially when there's good artwork to go with them. A good picture gets the message across better than words.
