Salve las tortugas carey de la pesca con explosivos y la pérdida de hábitat en El Salvador

— ICAPO, EcoViva, Coordinadora del Bajo Lempa, ViVAZUL/Plant a Fish, (2013)

Nearly 7,000 people of national and international origin urged the President of El Salvador, Mauricio Funes, and the Millenium Challenge Corporation (MCC) to protect hawksbills and their habitat in the Bahia de Jiquilisco. In response to the petition, the MCC sent an official statement affirming its commitment to ensuring that hawksbills and their habitat are not negatively impacted by MCC-supported projects. Because the MCC will be funding unprecedented levels of development along El Salvador’s coast in 2014, this commitment is an important victory for hawksbills and the local communities that protect them.

More than 1,000 people from 55 countries urged the Salvadoran government to take immediate actions to eliminate blast fishing, or fishing with explosives, and to protect critical hawksbill nesting beaches in the Bahia de Jiquilisco, El Salvador. This petition helped us secure key meetings with the Vice-Minister of the Environment and the creation of an emergency action plan to reduce sea turtle mortality.
