Dateline: 17th January 2012.
The Society has heard from Oliver OstickA of Scuba Junkies who has made us aware that if 10,000 signatures can be obtained in support of a shark sanctuary in the area surrounding Sipadan Island, then the sanctuary would come into being.
Over 4,000 people have signed already and we know that all SCS members will want to add their name to this petition to help bring into effect a new shark sanctuary.
There is also a facebook page - semporna shark sanctuary.
Please see the link below which will take you to the petition website.
We urge all SCS members to sign and to pass this onto others to make sure that 10,000 signatures are achieved.
