Legalising poaching to protect turtles

Costa Rica allows form of legalised poaching to help preserve a turtle and a local way of life.

    Protecting turtles is a challenging job at the best of times.

    It is made even harder when their eggs are stolen and sold in the black market.

    But an unusual conservation project in Costa Rica, that allows locals to remove turtle eggs during the first two days of nesting season, is proving a viable solution.
