Honduran President Porfirio Lobo Sosa, watches as naval officers in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, burn more than 200 illegal shark fins confiscated in Laguna Brus, Honduras, in 2012. The fins—mostly from nurse sharks—were confiscated as part of efforts to enforce shark protections in Honduran waters. A year ago, Honduras joined five other countries—Palau, the Marshall Islands, Tokelau, the Bahamas, and the Maldives—in taking the bold step of permanently protecting sharks in their waters and creating a sanctuary for sharks. These sanctuaries cover more than 1.8 million square miles of ocean.
