Shame on Costa Rica!!!
by DelmarRey 10-03-2010

You think there maybe a reason why the sea turtles are going extinct?

The Turtle eggs are stolen to be sold.

Costa Rica Turtle Egg Harvest Protest Email

Simply read the truth and ignore the fake emails sent out with political agenda. This is part of a program designed to increase turtle population, not decrease it. They are not stolen, but careful monitored collection to increase the survival rate. So far a 20% increase in survival has been achieved.

Thanks for clearing this up, miatapaul. I knew that I had seen these pix before, but couldn't remember where - definitely NOT poaching!

Basicly if you get a forwarded email about any issue you can safely assume it is false, untill proven otherwise.

Also keep in mind:

"Costa Rica was today named as the winner of the 2010 Future Policy award at a global summit on biodiversity in Nagoya, Japan.

The Central American country aims to be the first developing nation to meet UN biodiversity commitments. The prize, issued by the World Future Council, was given in recognition of the country's 1998 biodiversity law, which was held up as a model for other nations to follow.

Costa Rica channels funds from a fuel tax, car stamp duty and energy fees to pay for nature reserve management and environmental services like clean air, fresh water and biodiversity protection.

Landowners are paid to preserve old-growth forests and to plant new trees. As a result, forest cover has risen from 24% in 1985 to close to 46% today.

It has also established a national commission on biodiversity, comprising scientists, civil servants and indigenous representatives, which proposes policies to the government and promotes green education among the public.

Partly as a result, Costa Rica ranks third in the global Environmental Performance index and first in the Happy Planet index."
