Governments Discuss Marine Life Corridor

February 27, 2004

GOVERNMENT officials from Costa Rica, Panama, Ecuador and Colombia are working with the organization Conservation International and the United Nations Education, Science and Cultural Organization to create a protected corridor for marine life migrating between islands owned by each country, La Prensa Libre reported earlier this month.

The corridor would include the islands of Malpelo (Colombia), Cohiba (Panama), Galapagos (Ecuador) and Isla del Coco (Costa Rica).

The project aims to provide a haven for creatures such as sharks, turtles, tortoises, manta rays, tuna, and other fish.

Such corridors exist in Latin America, but this would be the first to cross international waters in the area.

“The government of Costa Rica supports the initiative of the ecological groups to consider what is a great step forward in the protection of the island (del Coco),” said Costa Rica’s Environment and Energy Minister Carlos Rodríguez.
