World’s First Shark Sanctuary Celebrates Shark Week

Celebrate Shark WeekThe Micronesian Shark Foundation (MSF) and Fish'n Fins will host the 10th Annual Shark Week from 14-21 March 2012. During this educational event, divers can take part in an invigorating week with an informative lecture and movie series and amazing shark dives at some of Palau's most famous dive sites, including Blue Corner, Peleliu Corner and Shark City
