Last Friday, 28 August, the police of Tanjung Redeb (District of Berau, East Borneo, Indonesia) provided an important blow against illegal sea turtle egg trade. The police confiscated about 4,600 turtle eggs and arrested a suspect who was about to prepare the eggs for further smuggling. The suspect is expecting considerable fines, and we hope that this incident will significantly contribute to uncover the criminal networks active in sea turtle egg poaching and trafficking in Berau. The case was reported by ProFauna, a partner organisation of Turtle Foundation collaborating in sea turtle protection in East Borneo. Please read the full report on ProFauna’s website:
