Help establish a new shark sanctuary in Raja Ampat

Recommended Posts

Overview:

Indonesia enjoys the most biodiverse ocean environments on the planet. Unfortunately, it is also the world's largest shark fishery, having all but emptied its waters of a valuable resource: its sharks.

 

Raja Ampat in Eastern Indonesia is perhaps the crown jewel of this biodiverse region, but its shark populations have been ravaged and its manta populations are now under siege.

 

Shark Savers is working with the Misool Eco Resort, Conservation International's Indonesia Marine Program, WildAid, and other NGOs and eco-tourism companies on a new initiative to convince the Raja Ampat government to prohibit all fishing of sharks, mantas, and mobulas.

 

Please link here to sign the petition:

Note: This is not a "feel good" petition! The petition is one piece of a comprehensive initiative. It's very important that we show the Raja Ampat Fisheries and Tourism Depts. that sharks, mantas and mobulas are very valuable to their local economy - ALIVE!

 

Thanks!

Mary
