Hopefully this honor for Jairo will make the Costa Rican government keep up the pursuit of his murderers..
and make it safe once again for WIDECAST to continue their work in saving these creatures, for every day they can't patrol is a day more sea turtles are being poach and driven closer to extinction...

This is a wonderful tribute to Jairo Mora Sandoval who was simply a compassionate human being passionate about saving sea turtles in Costa Rica. I hope the the investigation gains momentum and ultimately finds those responsible for his killers. Costa Rica has his blood on their hands and now more than ever before, they had just better get it right and increase funding for the sea turtle conservation program.
Kudo's to SSCS & Captain Paul Watson for naming a ship in their fleet after Jairo Mora Sandoval. Even a simple ordinary man can make a huge difference in our world. RIP Jairo .
