Police seize 101 sea turtle eggs from suspected poacher on Caribbean Coast

June 25, 2014

In the early morning Wednesday, police nabbed a woman with the last names Cerdas Viales, who is suspected of poaching turtle eggs on Moín Beach near the Caribbean port city of Limón.

Police suspect that Cerdas was working with a man who fled the scene. They seized 101 hawksbill sea turtle eggs and 12 styrofoam coolers, and transferred the eggs to a biologist who reburied them in a protected hatchery on Mondonguillo Beach, near Matina in the same region.

The seizure comes two days after police arrested a man for selling leatherback sea turtle eggs outside of a sports stadium in Limón.
