From: Palau Tours Blog

On Sunday evening, February 12, 2012, a massive sand sculpture in honor of Palau’s Shark Sanctuary was displayed during the 10th anniversary celebration of the world’s first Shark Sanctuary.

The bartender from Palau Pacific Resort even made up a special drink called a "Sanctuary Sling"...a mock-tail version of PPR's signature drink the "Shark Bite" Over 300 guests attended the event and President Torbiong addressed the crowd.


The event and days leading up to it were filmed for a television show named
“Sand Masters”, which will air across the globe on The Travel Channel. This episode, which focuses entirely on Palau, will be shown in over 100 countries with multiple replays for 3 to 5 years for hundreds of millions of viewers to enjoy.

Be sure to stop by
PPR to see the sculpture while it lasts, depending on weather it could survive from a few weeks to a few months. And for those of you who are wondering, yes, it is only made of sand and water.
