Little has changed 1 year after slaying of Costa Rica conservationist Jairo Mora — The Tico Times.
Jairo Mora Sandoval’s murder got a lot of people riled up last year. I’m a bit disappointed that the criminals on the beach have taken over the beach, turtles nest are still being robbed and the local police aren’t really helping very much. The police have arrested 7 people but their trial is still pending.

Little has changed 1 year after slaying of Costa Rica conservationist Jairo Mora — The Tico Times
Jairo Mora Sandoval, 26, died just weeks after posting a Facebook plea for police help with turtle-egg thieves.
Late in April a dedicated young Costa Rican conservationist, Jairo Mora Sandoval, logged on to his Facebook page, with its pictures of cavorting baby sea turtles and wild beaches, and typed out an urgent plea. “Can you send messages to the police to come to the Moin beach,” he asked his friends, stressing that the officers must be armed and not afraid, “60 turtles are lost – there wasn’t even a nest left. We need help and soon.”
