Costa Rican police rescue yet another sea turtle from poachers

August 11, 2015

National Police on patrol with volunteers discovered a green sea turtle tied and on its back on the Caribbean beach of Moín Monday evening. Authorities rescued the animal before poachers could remove it. There were no arrests, according to a statement from the Public Security Ministry on Tuesday. Stepped-up patrols on the Caribbean coast this year have led to the rescue of several other sea turtles from poachers. Green sea turtles (Chelonia mydas) are listed as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources.
