There should be more sanctuaries than one for the ocean's apex predator, But one is good news and a good example. Thank you, Cher, for this encouraging story.

Thank you Cher. Great news. Wish South Africa would follow suit. Our local newspapers are filled with shark alerts as the summer season approaches. Idiots.

So happy to hear this. Sharks need many sanctuaries as they are under attack from shark-finning and are so important to ocean ecosystems.

There are good news in this world? Hard to believe. If there are this kind of sanctuaries there are only for fish, you have no feelings for a few politicians?
