    The manatee is one step away from being declared as the symbol of the marine fauna of Costa Rica, after six members of the Special Standing Committee on Science, Technology and Education positively dictated a bill to that effect.The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The manatee is one step away from being declared as the symbol of the marine fauna of Costa Rica, after six members of the Special Standing Committee on Science, Technology and Education positively dictated a bill to that effect.

    This initiative was presented by a group of students from the School District Limoncito sector, concerned about the danger of extinction of this marine mammal.

    This new law provides that the Ministry of Environment, Energy and Telecommunications must enforce laws and international conventions that relate to the conservation and protection of manatees and their habitat.

    The bill seeks to provide protection to the manatee populations present along the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. Because this species requires special protection for their habitat due to the accelerated development of different human activities that directly or indirectly impact their populations, which creates serious problems for proper conservation.

    “The species inhabits throughout the Caribbean region and is the country’s emblematic animal of the natural wealth that protects wetlands found throughout the Caribbean, but, as experts warn the species is close to extinction,” indicated the deputy of National Liberation, Rodrigo Pinto Rawson.

    The independent MP Jose Contreras Joaquín Porras also highlighted the importance of this initiative and indicated that as these students are making history.

    “With this approval we are giving a signal to the youth, that they are the new heirs of the Atlantic region,” said the independent legislator.
