Quotes

" "Given the importance of green turtles to Nicaragua's past, present and future, we encourage the communities, governmental agencies, and conservation groups to take measures that conserve and sustain these globally threatened populations, and to work together to ensure that the communities have alternative sources of protein and income into the future," said Dr. Caleb McClennen, Director of WCS's Marine Program."
"The company also plans to frequently inspect sewage outlets to the Nhue River to ensure that it cannot overflow into inner city areas" he said
...The steep decline in populations since 2008 is traceable to over-fishing. As there is no limit on this "take, obviously there will have t be a severe one. Self regulation is impossible when there is insufficient contact between turtle eaters, turtle catchers and government."
...Lagueux, lead author of the study. "We hope this study serves as a foundation for implementing scientifically based limits on future green turtle take."
