1000 dead sea turtles

Hi, I live in Central America, specifically in Panama, in the region of Chiriqui on the Pacific side. For about two weeks, arriving every day, the bodies of dead sea turtles. There are dozens, even hundreds. A dog of a neighbor died after bite a piece of meat of one of these turtles. The local authorities in Costa Rica and Panama are not spreading any news about it, and I believe that they do to avoid problems with tourism and the export of the fish. The problem is serious, and above all no one helps us gather all these corpses ... No one gives the latest news ... we talked about poachers of the sea ... bullshit! Here we talk about something really serious ... and no one does anything. Can you help? You can spread this terrible news? You can help us to get answers?

    • Reiteramos que desde hace más de 10 años se evidenció que la pesca con 'longlines' o palangres, de unos 100 km de longitud y decenas de miles de anzuelos, es la causa principal de la matanza de tortugas, mamíferos y otras especies marinas en los océanos del mundo. En el caso del océano Pacífico se ha determinado, por ejemplo, que de más de 250.000 baulas no quedan más de 2000, lo que se evidencia en el número cada vez más descendiente de tortugas baula que desovan en el Parque Nacional Santa Rosa, en el Parque Nacional Marino las Baulas y en el resto de las playas del litoral Pacífico costarricense y latinoamericano. Esta vez quizá fueron pescadores extranjeros faenando muy al sur de Costa Rica, lejos de la costa, como ha sido usual, pues en Panamá, como ya se había informado, también están encontrando tortugas muertas. Dolorosa realidad, pero realidad al fin, que los gobiernos no quieren admitir, negándose a ejecutar acciones internacionales para regular la pesca con palangres en las rutas de migración y las semanas conocidas en que se desplazan las tortugas marinas por la alta mar. Así se le propuso al presidente Abel Pacheco y a su ministro de Ambiente (Carlos M. Rodríguez) sin que éste hiciera algo al respecto, pese a que la petición iba firmada por representantes de más de 40 naciones presentes en un simposio de tortugas que entonces se celebraba en Costa Rica. La nueva situación debería hacer reflexionar a los que sinceramente desean, al menos mitigar, esa conocida matanza, para lo cual deberían dejar de lado especulaciones ajenas a esa realidad que se refleja en las playas del parque Las Baulas de Guanacaste, donde al SUMAR las últimas tres temporadas su número no alcanza los 100 individuos (unas 32 por temporada de anidación) cuando al crearse el parque se estimaba que unas 2000 tortugas anidaban por año. En fin, si no se toman medidas de conservación internacionales, donde los diferentes gobiernos asuman sus responsabilidades, muy pronto estaremos frente a la paradoja de tener playas protegidas a las que no llegan tortugas a desovar.
    • on a reply in 1000 dead sea turtles, a problem about WWF.We reiterate that for more than 10 years showed that fishing with longlines, about 100 km in length and tens of thousands of hooks, or 'longlines' is the main cause of the killing of turtles, mammals and other marine life in the oceans of the world. In the case of the Pacific Ocean has been determined, for example, that more than 250,000 leatherback are not more than 2000, which is evidenced in the number each time more descendant of leatherback turtles that spawn in the Santa Rosa National Park, las Baulas Marine National Park and the rest of the beaches of the Pacific coast of Costa Rica and Latin America. This time maybe they were fishermen foreign fishing far to the South of Costa Rica, away from the coast, as it has been usual, as in Panama, as it had already reported, they are also finding dead turtles. Painful reality, but reality in the end, governments don't want to admit, refuse to take international action to regulate fishing with longlines in the migration routes and known weeks in which sea turtles by the high seas move. So is proposed to President Abel Pacheco and his Minister of environment (Carlos M. Rodríguez) without this to do something in this regard, despite the fact that the petition was signed by representatives of more than 40 Nations present at a symposium of turtles that it was then celebrated in Costa Rica. The new situation should give food for thought to those who sincerely wish to at least mitigate, this famous massacre, which should put aside speculation that reality is reflected in the beaches of the park outside Las Baulas de Guanacaste, where by adding the last three seasons his number not reached 100 individuals (about 32 per nesting season) when to create the Park was estimated to be some 2000 turtles nested per year. Finally, if international conservation measures, where Governments assume their responsibilities, are not taken very soon we will be facing the paradox of having protected beaches that do not reach turtles spawn.

    Hi Maria and David,
    Thanks for your concerns, we appreciate it.
    I have forwarded your queries on to our Turtle expert here at WWF. There may be some delay in response as she is currently travelling in the field.

  • Is really crazy. I am not a scientist, but it was the first case which I thought ...
    It seems that no one really talks about these problems ... so people think that these problems do not exist.
    But how can't understand that a disaster like Fukushima has stopped giving problems? it is terrible what is happening ... is a world ever more poisoned.

  • I’m thankful
    I am happy to discover that I am not alone on that beach, concern by that nightmare ...One of my dog, ate a small peace of a dead turtle and she died in 3 hours with a lot of convulsions and shaking...It was horrible to see...Even the vet was not able to help. We had a autopsy made, and he said that she died of a food intoxication... Today , in front of my house on the beach,in Las Lajas, another dead turtle..in decomposition...Every day, we have dead turtles on the beach since 3 weeks...yesterday there where 10 dead turtles just in front the house....I imagine that we are not alone? Thank you Maria and David for your help. All together, I hope we will find the real answer!

  • No word on turtle deaths

    Posted: Friday, February 01, 2013 - By Lindsay Fendt

    Both the Costa Rican Fisheries Institute and the newly formed Vice Ministry of Waters and Oceans acknowledged fishing as a possible cause of death.

    Photos provided by environmental groups show several turtles snared and hooked by longlines last week just outside the Golfo Dulce, in Costa Rica’s southern Pacific. Incopesca President Luis Dobles thinks disease, red tide or water contamination might be to blame. ...

  • Dead turtles and dying politics

    Posted: Thursday, January 31, 2013

    Incopesca is dominated by people with commercial fishing industry ties because of a flawed charter that outlines its structure. Incopesca needs to be reformed, and 100 decrees won’t help protect marine resources until that happens

    Last Friday, Agriculture and Livestock Minister (MAG) Gloria Abraham signed a decree that outlines implementation of a national fishing plan to more responsibly manage the country’s marine resources. It is part of President Laura Chinchilla’s “blue agenda” to expand the country’s environmental policies to include oceans, rivers and poor coastal residents.

    The world’s ocean resources are being ravaged at a rapid pace, and global conservation groups warn that if the oceans’ species disappear, so do we. One would think that Abraham’s signing of the decree would be a positive step forward for the country. Unfortunately, it happened the same week that hundreds of dead sea turtles and other species washed ashore in the southern Pacific.

    Most of the dead turtles were olive ridleys (Lepidochelys olivacea), which, despite being ...

  • The saddest thing is that people believe it!
    They play on the ignorance of the people, in order to provide an explanation (totally absurd) a licensing catastrophic event which could be fatal to the economy of the country. I believe that the vast majority of people have not tried to investigate what happened ... and does not know that in those days the thousands of other dead turtles arrived on many beaches of the Pacific Ocean (and not only).
    Illegal fishing can not be the cause ... for logically!
    They're all idiots fishermen who kill turtles and then, instead of picking them up, leave them to drift!!!? Is no longer profitable collect them? is completely absurd ... in this sick world, the money remains the only God .. the health of people and the planet, no matter ... I am disgusted!
    • Maria Nadali,
      Hang in there girly, Knowledge is power, use it correctly and tell the truth, them in Governments that do nothing are as guilty as the people doing the wrongs, Awareness is our ammunition !
      We must get the word out, when enough are aware, the voices will rise up and they must listen !
