Ban shark finning/fishing in Costa Rica

Shark slaughter continues in Costa Rica. Taiwanese finning ships now dock illegally, at private facilities, to escape the reach of the law. The act is cruel, inhumaine and misrepresents a country recognized for biodiversity protection.  Learn more by visiting http://www.sharkwater.com


Letter to
Ministry of the Presidency Costa Rican Presidency/Presidencia de Costa Rica
I just signed the following petition addressed to: Costa Rican government..

----------------
Urge Costa Rican government to ban shark finning/fishing in Costa Rica entirely.

Shark finning is the act of slicing off the fin and discarding the living shark back to sea, where it dies a horrible death. The amputated fins are then exported to Asia, where they are used to make an ominous delicacy: shark fin soup (as journalist John Platt calls it, “extinction in a bowl”). Shark slaughter continues in Costa Rica. Taiwanese finning ships now dock illegally, at private facilities, to escape the reach of the law. The act is cruel, inhumaine and misrepresents a country recognized for biodiversity protection.
