According to a news story, “Lawmakers voting on the ban voted 41 in favor and five against, and a second vote…is widely seen ratifying changes to the law, which aims to protect animals in one of the world’s most biodiverse countries.”
Hunting for other than survival by indigenous groups, destroys lives and upends ecosystems. In Costa Rica, jaguars, pumas, and sea turtles are often hunted as trophies. Hunting for sport is no sport for the animals who lose their lives.
Take Action: Write a note to the president of Costa Rica and the US ambassador thanking them for their country’s stance on hunting for sport.
