Scuba Coiba is promoting the protection of sharks and supports Seashepherd’s current campaign OPERATION TREASURED ISLANDS, launched by Seashepherd in April 2017 covering the area of the “Cocos Plate” with its “sharky” outcroppings Galapagos (Ecuador), Malpelo (Colombia), Cocos (Costa Rica) and Coiba (Panamá), a zone of incredible bio-diversity. The mission of the campaign is to show the abuse and damage of illegal shark fishing practices in these national parks, remove ghost nets and long lines and report poachers to the authorities.
Divers should be aware of the damage done to our shark populations and should have a natural interest to help protecting them by supporting operations and activities against shark fishing and -finning. They also should always continue to improve their diving skills and and learn more about underwater life and the world’s oceans fragile eco systems.
