Support the Shark Sanctuary in Moalboal, the first in the Visayan area of the Philippines.

We the undersigned 

Would like to thank the Local Government of Moalboal for their continued support of marine conservation.

We would like to urge the Moalboal Local Government to sign an ordinance creating the first Shark Sanctuary in the Visayan area in the Philippines. This will give sharks a fighting chance to grow in numbers and will also create a new tourist attraction in the area


  • Stop all catching of sharks in municipal waters
  • Support a Shark Conservation Awareness Program to educate tourists and residents of the importance of these beautiful animals to the eco-system
  • Ban the sale of shark meat, oil, teeth, fins and jaws throughout the municipality
  • Publicise the Shark Sanctuary both nationally and internationally so as to create awareness of Moalboal's special role in marine conservation

Thank you for your kind attention. We hope that together we can work together to Give Sharks a Fighting Chance in Moalboal, Cebu.
Sign up today to show you support for the first Shark Sanctuary in the Visayan area of the Philippines

The local government of Moalboal has long supported marine conservation. Most fish and coral species flourish on Moalboal's beautiful reefs and their populations continue to grow. However, sharks have been over-fished and now just a handful remain. Without protection these important and beautiful animals will soon disappear

By adding your voice we can help the Local Government in making the decision to declare all of Moalboal a Shark Sanctuary

  • Yes to the first Shark Sanctuary in Visayan area in the Philippines
  • Yes to a Shark Conservation Awareness Program
  • No to catching of sharks in all municipal waters
  • No sale of shark meat or fins in local markets
  • No sale of shark oil, teeth or jaws
