I'm in Palau this week to attend a meeting of the Association of Pacific Island Legislators. Even though I have wanted to visit for years, this is my first time here. As I got off the plane I was greeted by four big posters with sharks. Is there any doubt that Palau is home to the world's 1st shark sanctuary?
What a great idea! The Saipan airport should have something similar welcoming guests to the gateway of the Mariana Trench Marine National Monument -- and they should do it before Guam does.
