Sharks are wildlife too! Hammerhead sharks are even critically endangered species and should NOT be considered a commercial species. Costa Rica’s president Carlos Alvarado has publicly recognized that sharks can and should be protected by Costa Rica’s Wildlife Conservation Law (WCL)…so what is he waiting?

Therefore, we ask him the following:

  1. Derogate the Executive Decrete No. 4282, which lists sharks as commercial species and not wildlife species.
  2. To call the project 21.754 to modify WCL in the national congress so that endangered shark species can be protected.

We invite you to join us in a national protest next July 4th to demand Costa Rican president Carlos Alvarado to Save the sharks! Sharks are wildlife too and they need to be protected as such.
