Indonesian Government in Bali: STOP the illegal slaughter of Sea Turtles!

    1. Petition by

      SOS-SEATURTLES Switzerland / France

Bali's inhabitants slaughter more endangered sea turtles than anyone else in the world, bringing the species ever closer to extinction. We need more enforcement to the Government  Act No 7/1999, which prohibits the killing and trading  Sea Turtles !!

Sadly, the issue is now rising its ugly head again. In January 2013, local newspapers reported that the illegal turtle trade had returned to it's old sheme, which has also been confirmed by their local animal and environment protection organisations. These proves that the protection offered in Bali is totally insufficient and that the police are not pursuing violations against Act No 7/1999, which prohibits the killing of and dealing with sea turtles, and against the CITES regulations that prohibits the trade of turtle products.

The killing of these magnificent creatures is a GRUESOME, BARBARIC process!

The turtle's plastron is sliced and ripped open, the internal organs are being removed, blood is scooped out, and the head cut off. During this entire massacre, the poor turtle is alive and struggling in pain!
