Panamanian Authorities Seize Load of Illegal Sea Turtle Eggs

Environmental Issues ORIA, Los Santos. Panamanian authorities made a seizure today, the second in ten days, of illegally gathered turtle eggs in the province of Los Santos. The seizure came as a part of operations by inspectors from the regional office of the Aquatic Resources Authority of Panama (ARAP) in Los Santos. The eggs came from the beach of Oria, a district of Pedasi. As part of the operation, in the city of Las Tablas another 79 dozen eggs were also confiscated that had already been cooked to be sold. Recently, the National Environment Authority dismantled a band of turtle egg traffickers who were operating in this area. This band had a clandestine collection and distribution center for the illegal turtle eggs in the village of Llano Largo. In that place authorities seized approximately 818 eggs, or more than 151 dozen. They were taken illegally from the Wildlife Refuge on Isla Cañas. (La Prensa)
