The good news for shark conservation just keeps rolling in. This just in from Guam:
Guam Legislature Vice Speaker Benjamin J.F. Cruz will introduce legislation to ban shark finning on Guam. This legislative effort began when Hawaii State Senator Clayton Hee lobbied the Guam legislature to introduce shark finning prohibitions. With the introduction of a shark finning ban on Guam, the legislatures of the state of Hawaii, Northern Mariana Islands, and Guam have joined together in a mutual effort to preserve the natural resources in the Pacific Ocean for generations to come.
