Ex-President Jose Maria Figueres Olsen and his organization Via Costarricense sent a letter to Costa Rica’s Environmental Minister asking him to support the inclusion of hammer head and silky sharks in the appendices of the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS). Costa Rica has to opportunity to lead the process to include 2 species of hammer head sharks (Sphyrna lewini and Sphyrna mokarran) in the Convention’s appendix I, as well as cosponsor Egypt’s proposal to include silky sharks (Carcharhinus falciformis) in appendix II. Costa Rica must consolidate its stance on these species by September 4th.  All 3 species are highly migratory, inhabit and pass through Costa Rica Exclusive Economic Zone and have demonstrated serious population declines in recent decades according to the latest scientific studies.
