    And so the saga about the human race continue- eat and plunder their way through mother earth, and let nothing escape-- sad, very sad indeed.

    The survival rate is already very low for those turtles to make it to adulthood, hence they laying so many eggs, but to take it all is just not right. They surely cannot eat it all before it rot, and they cannot freeze it either- maybe they bake cakes....mmmmm

    They ain't dead, just need to lay their eggs, so they do not flee when humans come close. Check out those tears on the turtles when they see their children being captured:p

    It is really bad to see how we as people just take - we need to be giving back as well!!

    the sad part is people are doing this for money!! some one is paying for them to do this & that would be us another set of people - wanting the eggs for food or what ever else!

    I have seen many animals being killed or captured we are killing our own planet!!! when all is gone we are next!!

    Terrible :(

    Is there no one to police this? I mean we have a certain quota per day to catch inverts and fish etc, doesn't the same apply here? If it's not bad enough that the little turtle babies gets chowed by birds and other predators, now the uncaring human goes and grab the eggs up - don't even give the little turtles a chance to fight nature...
