Protect Cocos Island-Protect sharks September 07, 2008 6:35 PM
This is a project that was submitted to American Express members project last month. Out of 1190 projects it ended up 4th in the first round. I think it will be selected in the Top 25 and go on to round 2.
As environmentalists, we attempt to do all we can to protect our oceans and its eco-system. We know that our mere existence depends on the oceans. Protecting sharks from illegal fishing and poaching is essential since as the apex predators, they keep the oceans stabilized.
Protect Cocos Island's intent is to establish a virtual exhibit in Costa Rica about the Island showing its beauty and the threat it faces. There will also be a touring display to show the rest of the world.
