Jess about the Cook Islands Sanctuary!

PICI Programme Manager Jess Cramp secured shark protection support from US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during her visit to the islands last August - source.

Great post!

That's how you do it.
I'm still quite amazed at them having managed to pull this one off as for a while, it really looked like the Cook Islands would bow to the near-overwhelming pressure by important foreign fishing interests. This has required dogged perseverance, community support, smart legislation and a little help by some friends - and 100% passion!

Kudos again!
