Agreement Signed to Protect Marine Life

July 20, 2007

Working together to create and enforce laws that protect Costa Rica’s marine wildlife is the goal of a cooperation agreement signed Monday by the environmental nonprofit MarViva and the Costa Rican Fisheries Institute (INCOPESCA).

Among their joint goals are spreading information about existing laws to protect fish and drafting national plans to protect sharks and other marine life, according to a statement from MarViva.

The agreement was signed by MarViva Director Michael Rothschild and INCOPESCA president Carlos Villalobos.

“For INCOPESCA, an alliance with an organization such as MarViva is of great importance because it allows us to channel our efforts toward a common interest: the sustainable management of marine resources,”Villalobos said.

In the past, MarViva has signed cooperation agreements with other government offices including the Ministry of Environment and Energy (MINAE) and the Public Security Ministry.
