Full Page Newspaper Ad to Save Leatherback National Park
In a wide sweeping demonstration of solidarity, 16 national and international conservation NGOs published a full page advertisement in Costa Rica’s most circulated newspaper – La Nación. The paid ad called for the public’s support in opposition of a bill that proposes to downgrade Leatherback National Park to a wildlife refuge. The advertisement includes a letter that can be cut out and sent to the Legislative Assembly’s Environmental Commission, asking the commission head to table the bill and protect the leatherbacks.
