> Hello every one this is my first post of this site even though I've been a member for some time now. Last summer I was on a scuba diving trip off East Malaysian Sabah. I have now recently been informed by the diving business I was diving with that the Dive companies around Seporna are lobbying the govenment for an 8000km2 shark sanctury. Considering the problems that are faced in this Asia area with shark finning this sanctury with help protect the sharks in the area.

The local dive industry would like to pass on a petition with atleast 10,000 names from marine enthusiasts around the world who are in favor of the Shark sanctury.
