Turtle Eggs On Sale in Banda Aceh, Sumatra (March 27, 2017)
Posted on 09:58 March 27th, 2017

Sales of turtle eggs are still common in Banda Aceh city, Sumatra.  The eggs are on sale at the price IDR4,000 (about 40 cents US dollar) each.

If the turtle eggs sale continues, then it will disrupt turtle wild population.

In relation to the turtle egg sale, The Scorpion Wildlife Foundation has sent a report  and photographs to Wildlife Authority (BKSDA) in Aceh in the hope presumably BKSDA Aceh can provide awareness to the traders of turtle eggs.
