Noted Tks. Jill... When will the Asian stop this practice of raping the oceans and killing of all that walks or swims.. soon there will be nothing in the oceans, no elephants, rhino's and such in Africa....The way they're going they'll rape the world of everything....then what....

It's a start, but there's a long way to go. The whole world needs to stop the killing. Noted thanks Jill.

"Local traders welcomed the open approach and indicated they would follow the law and educate their customers not to purchase illegal goods." Wouldn't that be lovely - if it were true!

Sadly we have heard a lot of rhetoric and seen almost no honest action from them over the years.... however, if it IS true - may God bless all the honest policemen and traders trying to protect endangered species.

For anyone saying China's one child policy is cruel- NO IT"S NOT! The sheer numbers of Chinese people demanding meat and body parts from every frickin' species on the planet will be the end of most wildlife! OK, off soap-box- glad they are at least trying to slow the sea turtle trade...
