disrupt turtle nesting

people disturb tortoise

約5000隻瀕危欖蠵龜到哥斯達黎加的海灘產卵,但保護區卻擠滿了遊客!保安員及警察未能控制人群,有些自私的遊客在灘上與海龜合照,更打擾及觸摸牠們。敏感的海龜見狀都放棄產卵,轉身回大海。世上只餘下7種海龜,而且數量一直下降。

at the Costa Rican beaches, around 5000 olive ridley sea turtles came ashore to lay eggs, however, the ostional wildlife refuge were packed with tourists! small amount of polices and park rangers were not about to control the crowd. some selfish tourists went over to the take photo with the turtles; they even touch and disrupt the turtles. many sensitive turtles decided to return to the sea without laying their eggs. there are only 7 species of sea turtle left in the world, and their population is still declining.
