100 Hawksbill Turtles Die

Another sad story of poaching internationally-protected marine life. Fewer and fewer turtles are living long enough to reproduce.

Hawksbill Turtles are classified by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as critically-endangered--the highest risk rating for a living animal save for being completely extinct in the wild.

That story made me angry and sad at the same time. What a terrible fate for those poor turtles... :(
