Semporna Shark Sanctuary (No Comments)


Dear Sharkwater Team

I am writing to you on behalf of the proposed shark project called the  “Semporna Shark Sanctuary”.  This is a project based in Sabah, Malaysia, whereby more than 8000 square KM of the worlds most bio diverse marine habitats and also one of Asia’s last strongholds for sharks could, with your help, become South East Asia’s first and largest Shark Sanctuary!

The project has already been approved by the Local government and the Department of Fisheries and in early 2012 the proposal will be submitted to the Sabah State Government for approval. The proposal will be submitted by representatives of the Sabah NGO Borneo Conservancy and also the local Semporna Council.

Together with the submission of the proposal we hope to pass to the Sabah State government a petition with more than 10’000 names of marine enthusiasts around the world who are in favor of such a Shark Sanctuary.

This is where we need your help: We need you to please mention this proposal on either your Facebook site or your website as we need as many marine/shark enthusiasts as possible to put there name on this petition.

We basically need your help to spread the word and hopefully get the support we need to make this Shark Sanctuary succeed

If you can help in any way the Sharks in Sabah would be forever grateful!
