Marshall Islands: The World's Largest Shark Sanctuary
The Marshall Islands has been home to the world's largest shark sanctuary for a year. It's an area of the central Pacific Ocean spanning 1,990,530 square kilometers (768,547 square miles)—nearly four times the landmass of California—in which commercial fishing of all sharks is prohibited. And not only is it the biggest, but a year later, its shark protections are still the strongest. This video highlights the importance of the Marshall Islands shark sanctuary and how the government and law enforcement officials have been working to enforce its new laws.
