it was with great joy that I have taken knowledge of your statement and promise to stop the killing and trading of Sea turtles on the island of Bali.
Hundreds of thousands of caring people are very much concerned about Bali's Sea turtles and so I believe the existing Sea turtle trade is not a good promotion for your country and Bali, which is such a beautiful island with very friendly people and excellent hospitality.
It is really not worth risking Bali's image because of a group of corrupt and irresponsible people from Tanjung Benoa, who decimate one of the oldest inhabitants of our oceans for their own profit.
Together with the organizations SOS-SEATURTLES Switzerland / France, PRO-FAUNA Indonesia and OCCUPY FOR ANIMALS, I hope that your promises are being honored; that this situation in Bali is being brought under control and that the killing will stop at last.
Then afterwards, I would love to visit the island and your country again and I will convince others to do the same.

ABOUT THE KILLING:
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!
