Shark Sanctuary to be Created in Palau

The Associated Press, though MSNBC (link) reports on the tiny Micronesian country of Palau and their efforts to create a shark sanctuary within their territory.  This is a good article to discuss with kids the problems of illegal fishing, in this case sharks for shark fin soup.  Logistically it will be almost impossible to enforce without international assistance or a change in consumer demand for shark fins, but it is a problem that desrves awareness.  Palau is also a fascinating place to learn about and dream about visiting.
