These living fossils have been around about 10 million years, and have a very special diet. They keep the jelly fish populations t bay. But catching them for food is not the only threat. People also gather their eggs for nutrition. What is going to happen to the next generation of sea turtles? Some voluntary groups do take care of the sea turtles' nest sites to fend humans off, but as we do not know all their egg sites, The more eggs gone, the less the new generation. Drag nets and factory fishing kill sea turtles, among other endangered species, and they always en up in pots. The prognosis is not good. ESA listing is one way, but we just have to convince them to take us really seriously. We need the sea turtles to do their job in the marine ecosystem just as we need bees to pollinate berries and flowers etc.

In cases like this, I wonder how many of those who eat endangered species are ignorant of the harm they are doing, and how many jsut don't care.

Noted, signed with comment below, twittered and google shared. Thanks Cher for all that you do for our precious wildlife and all animals.

This must be acted upon at once. As an endangered species, turtles don't have the luxury of time on their side. Please take immediate measures to be sure that this illegal sale of Sea Turtles is halted and those who are responsible are punished to the fullest extent of the law. They must be made an example of in order to ensure that others do not try to do the same thing.
