Shortage of funding and materials make it important to be creative here at Cocos Island.





This is a tool being created by Sea Save Foundation Jay Ireland , on Cocos Island. Shortage of funding and materials make it important to be creative. This will help with the future collection of fishing line around the island!


Park guards need to patrol the waters around Cocos Island.  This is a Costa Rica National Park and a World Heritage Site, nonetheless it is under siege and there are typically 10 - 20 fishing boats with miles and miles of fishing line cruising for one of the only remaining shark sanctuaries every night.




We have been trying to "fix" the system and help Cocos for the last 20 years.  We are now taking matters into our own hands.  We are working with the park guards, analyzing their needs.
