Age-old customs and traditions that allow licenced traders to collect and sell marine turtle eggs to locals and tourists alike are driving the creatures to extinction, Malaysian conservationists charge.

How dumb do you need to be to fail to recognize how limited the natural world is?

Turtles, their body parts, and their eggs - EVERY SPECIES - needs to be put on an international list for prohibited trade. That way the tourists money will dry up. No demand, no market. Let the turtles live in peace. After all, this was *their* world first.
