The extinction of a species - watching it happen

Costa Rica
Wow! What a stunning sight. The sunset in the distance, the interesting black sand and all those beautiful turtles. There are so many of them. It's an incredible scenic picture to behold. 

Our world is an amazing place. Images and memories like this one above need to a cherished and remembered. It won't always be like this. Yep - sorry but I'm putting a downer on the tranquility settling into your mind as you watch this picturesque moment.


Woo there.....what's this? Family day? Picnic?

This is Costa Rica. Current Day.
Turtle egg poaching is a family affair. 
A coming together to "harvest" the eggs and sell them off.

Once they are gone...they are gone.

Make smart choices. Be informed. 
Know where your food comes from. 
Understand how products are made. 
Say NO.
