Thank you, Palau!!!

“The strength and beauty of sharks are a natural

barometer for the health of our oceans.

Therefore, I declare today that Palau will become

the world’s first national shark sanctuary, ending

all commercial shark fishing in our waters and giving

a sanctuary for sharks to live and reproduce

unmolested in our 237,000 square miles of ocean.

We call upon all nations to join us.”

Johnson Toribiong, President of Palau,

in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly
