Great Blue Wild

The Pacific coast of Costa Rica is a biodiversity hotspot that hosts nearly 5,000 species of marine life. But here in this undersea jungle, the ocean's top predators, sharks, are at risk - threatened by loss of habitat and overfishing. Now Costa Rica's passionate marine defenders are teaming up to create a safer home for these endangered creatures and to save them from extinction. Marine biologists tag young hammerhead sharks to track their movements and build a case for the creation of marine sanctuaries. Conservation groups challenge illegal fishing practices and bring new hope for the future of our oceans.
