A short film commissioned to celebrate the incredible efforts of the Fijian people and their Government in creating the first ever Melanesian Shark Sanctuary which would have provided the most stringent and detailed protection for every Shark and Manta Ray in Fijian waters. Unfortunately the decree did not pass and was rejected in July this year (2012)
"The Sanctuary" features interviews with leading shark experts, conservationists and the people who have dedicated their lives to understanding and protecting these magnificent animals every day.
We offer sincere thanks and the utmost respect to:
Ron & Valerie Taylor

This film also features stunning underwater footage filmed on Shark Reef in Beqa Lagoon from the upcoming film "Of Shark and Man" which will be released in 2013.
