Learn More About Operation Jairo in Costa Rica


The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society recently announced Operation Jairo, a sea turtle protection campaign that will take place this summer in southeastern Florida, Honduras and Costa Rica. Among the sites to be patrolled by Sea Shepherd volunteers this season is Moin Beach in Costa Rica’s Caribbean province of Limón, the site of the tragic murder of young turtle conservationist Jairo Mora Sandoval. One of Sea Shepherd’s vessels is also named after the dearly departed Jairo.

Last season, The Costa Rica Star reported on Operation Pacuare, the first campaign conducted by a formal Sea Shepherd chapter in our country. According to the organization:

Operation Jairo will span the peak nesting or hatching months for sea turtles in all three locations, in an effort to save as many hatchlings as possible – giving the next generations of these endangered species a fighting chance at survival.
