Some Brave Custom Officers have exposed the Brutality of Smugglers When They paid Visit to Suspicious Shipment Back in China
The Rare Beauty is under serious threats
Few brave custom officers have exposed the brutality of human beings when they have paid the visit to suspicious shipment. They have found more than 100 shells of hawksbill sea turtles. According to the National Geographic only 15,000 nesting females left and if this smugglers kept their activities going then soon this specie will be wiped out from earth.
This sad incident happened in China’s Guangxi region, but Government of China and The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) has declared all kind of trades which includes hawksbill sea turtles illegal. These rare species lives in the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian Oceans, according to National Geographic.
Smugglers have targeted these adult turtles for the sake of their meet and their shells, which are being used to form different kind of jewelries. This tragic story shows that human being can be very cruel for the sake of their own purpose. But these custom officers have given these turtles some hope.
