This unique film, directed and produced by John Weller and Shawn Heinrichs, highlights the important steps needed to protect sharks in the Federated States of Micronesia and the growing movement to prevent extinction and save these threatened species. The film also highlights the most recent shark protections and paints a picture of the global threats faced by these key species.

Beginning in 2009 with Palau, protections for sharks have been established by countries and territories as diverse as the Maldives, the Marshall Islands, Tokelau, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and Honduras. More and more nations recognize that sharks are more valuable alive than dead, and that they contribute both to the economy and the stability of ocean ecosystems.
