los suenos fishingThe World Wildlife Fund, known more commonly as WWF, is an international organization that champions environmental policies. Through its persistent efforts, it has become a beacon of sustainability. Earning its respect is no easy feat.

Costa Rica recently managed to, however.

According to The Fish Site, Costa Rica has pledged to end the overfishing epidemic. The country - along with New Zealand, Argentina, Iceland, the United States and other trade giants - has agreed to ban overcapacity fishing fleets and also refuses to introduce subsidiary programs that endanger waterways.

This is a vital stance toward conservation. As Dr. Pak Efransjah, CEO of WWF Indonesia, explains, “Bad subsidies undermine good management, while good subsidies support management, sustainability and development. (These) guidelines are an important step in the right direction."

Costa Rica’s efforts will help to rebuild marine populations and ensure efficient fishery management. This will have long-lasting impacts on Los Suenos, Jaco and the rest of the Central Pacific.

fishing los suenosShark finning is a process condemned throughout the world - both for its cruelty and its damning population effects. Within the last decade fishermen have decimated entire pods, and the Pacific Ocean has been severely impacted.

A Tico Times article proves that Costa Rica will no longer stand for such atrocities.

On November 28, 2013, the Tico Times reported that Costa Rican President Laura Chinchilla recently closed private docks in the Puntarenas region. These docks had previously served as gateways to finning expeditions, with fishermen flocking to their open waters and lax legislations. There over 90% of local breeds were routinely slaughtered.

Chinchilla was horrified, banning not only the use of the docks but the process of finning itself - and her actions have been noted.

The international organization Sharkproject has named Chinchilla “Shark Guardian of the Year”, lauding her efforts and encouraging others to follow her example. Her stance on both conservational and marine laws has made her a beacon of progress. Through her Costa Rica's creatures can be saved.
