|Sea Turtles laying eggs in Costa Rica|
At Incoming Bytes we recognize there is economic necessity at times. Times are tough. There are a lot of things in the world that are not pretty. There are many, many "problems".
As such, I have to ignore a lot of things that are wrong in the world, but some things are just too outrageous to ignore.
This is the theft of sea turtle eggs that are "harvested" for sale. It is not "just a few eggs to eat".
We no longer have to wonder why the sea turtle population is declining. Words are not enough to describe this "economic necessity" in this enlightened day and age.
Pictures are worth a thousand words.
We no longer have to wonder "why" the sea turtle population is "declining". It most certainly is not from "global warming".
It is clearly time to find economic alternatives for these people. Do they have any other income? Perhaps not.
Does this make YOU angry? These photos made me incredibly angry.
Clearly they are grabbing as many eggs as they can. To eat? No. To SELL--thousands of them.
At Incoming Bytes we believe it is time for the international community to "spread the wealth" so "harvests" and assaults on endangered species in nature like this one are NOT necessary.
I thank the *photographer and individuals that forwarded these pictures to me.

that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
