What you are witnessing in the photos above, are Costa Ricans harvesting sea turtle eggs for both food and profit. In a country strife with poverty and limited employment opportunities, Costa Ricans supplement their income by selling sea turtle eggs in the local markets; as well as, their source of protein as part of their meals. This is NOT, however, a group of Ganja smoking, benevolent, “Greenies” out to save the Pawikan (sea turtles) from extinction via global warming; as is reported by “experts” for their rapid decline (Ironically, they were just down the beach and made no attempts at saving these eggs from being harvested by locals!) I am not against the protection of animals, crops, or other natural resource from over harvesting. As a life-long conservative (one who conserves) -- land owner, organic gardener, cattle raiser, horse lover, dog lover, hunter, NRA member, gun owner and strict Constitutionalist, I am a firm believer in conserving and protecting that which can do neither on its own (This is especially true when it comes to the 3,746 unborn babies murdered each day in America via abortion.) However, what I will not protect nor defend is the use of “junk science” (at best) to further a cause based on lies. Long before humanity appeared on the planet, global ice ages, warming and other natural events wiped out dinosaurs, vegetation and flooded the earth to overflowing. Entire continents were rocked and moved from their very foundations! What was the cause then, experts?
