Costa Rica Protects a Big Part of the Big Blue.
Denizens of the deep rejoice! Costa Rica is getting serious about protecting pelagic. The enormous protected area around Coco Island National Park and nearby seamounts is call the Seamounts Marine Management Area. Weighing in at more than one million protected marine hectares, Costa Rica is now a world heavy weight when it comes to marine conservation, and not a moment to soon. Doña Laura Chinchilla can now take the moral high water with ocean slacker nations.
When asked about the news, a group of spinner dolphins off of the Osa replied;
“Four fins for Laura Chinchilla, Costa Ricans, and the international team of denizens of the deep who helped do this dive.”
“Don't forget Costa Rica's most important dolphin superpod area, off the Osa peninsula, is still seeing dead dolphins on a regular basis from tuna dozers razing our waters. There is still much to do for the big blue.”
