Shark Stanley Visits Guam

I think I know what those Chinese characters mean.
Shark Stanley hit the shores of Guam last week and visited some of the island's famous iconic spots.  George Washington High School's Marine Mania club sent in these photos.  They are the best set of photos we have received so far.  We have posted the photos to our Facebook page.

Beautiful Tumon Bay
Shark Defenders is compiling all of the Shark Stanley photos into a unique petition that will literally show the faces of shark conservation around the world.  We need beautiful, smiling faces from around the world.  The best photos will be those taken in front of iconic locations that government decision makers will recognize.  In Guam these locations are near the ocean and relate to ancient Chamorro culture.  What are these places in your country?  Those are the photos we want you to send us.

Even Sirena the mermaid loves Shark Stanley
Shark Stanley has been to 60 countries so far, well on his way to 177.  Additionally, over 50 organizations, clubs, dive shops, and businesses have signed up as official partners.  Becoming a partner is simple: just write a blog or story about Shark Stanley on your website and help us get at least 10 photos.

Shark Stanley goes for a swim
Guam has been at the forefront of shark conservation for several years now.  In 2011, Governor Eddie Calvo signed a law banning the sale, trade, and possession of shark fin.  At the time, Guam was only the third place in the world to have such a law.
