I have an interest in protecting ecosystems where I spent my childhood, were large paradises, now reduced by overexploitation.

Killing sea turtles at the time was a common practice, but legal and therefore suffered a massive exploitation in the absence of regulation, this led to put this and other species to that area in a endangered situation.

Currently still hunt but clandestinely.

SCENE The shape and size of the turtle is unmistakable: oval, the fisherman (at right side) take with both hands and pressed his knees to detain the turtle, another fisherman (at left side), then mutilates. A fin is well seen below the knee and the hand that brings the knife. (you can see it better in Photoshop, Cntrl-L, input levels: 0, 2, 255).

This turtle is butchered right there to take the meat and hide the shell.

In addition are two cups to load prized eggs, aside another knife in the sand, between the cups and fishermen is a blood stain in the sand. At right waiting several gulls to eating of junk discarded at sea.

Under normal circumstances it is customary, caught the fish and later cleaned before selling at fish-market, or clean it by their women while tired mens are relaxing. No is reason to use knives there if they don't were doing something illegal.

Report is only a way to preserve the ecosystem, the next generation has the rights to know and enjoys it, and our duty is to do everything possible to make this happen.
