A couple of days ago, at our Barracuda Restaurant, Tova gave one of her famous Shark Presentations to a group of guests who were very interested with the work of the Micronesian Shark Foundation, an organization founded by Tova & Navot Bornovski and members of the Fish ’n Fins staff.
Shark Conservation Palau
It was in 2002 when Tova Harel Bornovski, her husband Navot and members of the staff of Fish ’n Fins, all experienced divers and shark enthusiasts decided to do more than just watch. They founded the Micronesian Shark Foundation to help raise awareness of the importance of sharks and to protect them in the waters of Palau. They invested a lot of time, energy, enthusiasm and money to promote shark protection and highlight this matter to foreign visitors and locals alike.
The world's first Shark Sanctuary in Palau
In 2009 Palau created the world’s first Shark Sanctuary and hence spiked a worldwide conservation effort. Palau has created a 500.000 square kilometer NO-TAKING ZONE, which has many benefits including being home to 135 endangered or vulnerable species of sharks and rays.
As one of it’s educational programs the Micronesian Shark Foundation started Shark Week Palau. This event has been a big success ever since and divers from all over the world have come to participate.
Shark Week 2020 is the 18th annual Shark Week Palau.
We’d love to extend an invitation to all Shark Lovers, their friends and families to come and join.
