Protest shark finning in Sipadan / Mabul
Wetpixel member Syam was in the Sipadan/Mabul area over Christmas and discovered the local villagers catching and finning sharks on Mabul Island. Please help the conservation of sharks in the Sipadan area by writing in to encourage the resorts on Mabul and Kapalai and the Malaysian government to protect what few sharks that are left in the area and enlarge the marine protected area to cover the island group.
Please read the thread to get the contact information for the officials. Our voice as paying tourists does count and we should ensure our dollars are spent for the protection of the area and not contribute to its detriment.
