Ostional is the only place in the world where people can legally harvest sea turtle eggs.

National Police officers and Environment Ministry officials last Friday caught two poachers transporting 62 birds in the central Pacific district of Montes de Oro, in Costa Rica's Puntarenas province.
A group of turtle egg poachers have taken up residence on Playa Tortuga near Ojochal on Costa Rica's southern Pacific coast, biologists say.
The suspect was found with a .22-caliber rifle, a machete and a dog that reportedly was used for hunting. He was arrested for carrying a weapon illegally. Three others with him fled.
Delta Air Lines, American Airlines and United Airlines will no longer allow the shipment of lion, leopard, elephant, rhinoceros and buffalo hunting trophies, the U.S. carriers said Monday.
The International Union for the Conservation of Nature estimates that trophy-hunting tourists legally kill some 600 lions each year. Given that there are only about 30,000 lions left in Africa, this represents an annual loss of roughly 2 percent of the total lion population to legal hunting.
"I had no idea that the lion I took was a known, local favorite, was collared and part of a study until the end of the hunt."
