We were thrilled to be in San José for the Costa Rican premiere of Sharkwater Extinction on (Nov. 27). United Conservationists, FinFree, Team Sharkwater, conservation groups and the Department of Fisheries all joined us to celebrate the film’s release.
Costa Rica is one of the hot spots for shark finning and distribution.
In 2012, President Chinchilla signed for banning shark finning but people found a loophole that as long the fin is still attached to the body, it's considered legal. People starting to kill sharks on the dock while only leaving the fins and spinal columns. The viable illegal market is still going on.
United Conservationists and FinFree will continue to work with the government on more shark protections. We have accomplished so much and still needed everyone's help, please donate and help us fight with the injustice towards sharks and our ocean.
Sharks desperately need your help today and everyday. So do we.
