Miss Fiji Crowned Miss South Pacific

Miss Fiji Alisi Rabukawaqa was crowned the new Miss South Pacific, news that one would normally find on a blog dedicated to shark conservation, except that Miss Rabukawaqa has made shark conservation and the creation of a Fiji Shark Sanctuary the focus of her pageant platform.

Congrats to the new Miss South Pacific and all the other contestants.  We look forward to a year full of shark protections and advocacy!

2011 has been a banner year for shark protections, both in terms of enactment of policy and the beginnigs of enforcement.  What will 2012 bring?  A Fiji Shark Sanctuary would sure be a nice start.

From FijiVillage.com:
Alisi Rabukawaqa is the new Miss South Pacific, 24-year-old Miss Rabukawaqa was crowned last night, in Apia, Samoa.

Rabukawaqa who is also the current Vodafone Miss Fiji Hibiscus is a volunteer with the World Wildlife Fund and has been advocating on the issue of shark protection at the pageant.
