the yellow-margined box turtle

turtle hunting

台灣多年前已著手保護她們國家稀有的食蛇龜,更在翡翠水庫建立了保護區,廿五年來一直保護著這龜種。
可是,因為中國的熱炒稀珍動物跡象,導致近期不斷有人擅闖保護區,更用捕鼠籠去補捉食蛇龜再轉售到中國。
彷彿在金錢面前,保連管理嚴謹的保護區都起不了什麼作用。

Feicuei Dam in taiwan is one of the habitat of the endangered yellow-margined box turtle, and that area has been a protection area for the past 25 years. however, recently many people break into the protection area to look for these turtles, some even tried to use mousetraps to catch them. these poor turtles are sold to people in china and turned into chinese medicine.
