This morning, Turtle Island and our partner organizations hand delivered your petition signatures on the need to protect sharks from tuna and mahi mahi longliners in the Pacific Ocean to the President of Costa Rica.
Our team showed up with a shark mascot, drummers and activists in Costa Rica. See the photos below.
