when blemish saves lives

beauty and life balance

野外只餘下約300隻犁頭龜,因為擁有漂亮的殼令牠們成為偷獵者的目標。為了對抗偷獵者和保護這些瀕危的犁頭龜,美國文圖拉縣的海龜保護中心決定忍痛在兩隻龜的殻上刻上記號。保育員認為,只要能有效保護犁頭龜們,在漂亮的殻刻上這些永久記號也是值得的。

ploughshare tortoises have beautiful shell, but with all the illegal trading, there are only 300 of them left in the wild. to fight for poaching and protect these rare tortoises, ugly marks were being engraved on two of them at the Behler Chelonian Center in Ventura County recently. even though it is heartbreaking to destroy their natural beauty, conservationists believe this is the right thing to do to protect them when they are facing extinction.
