Tortoise Shell Jewelry…buyer beware!

Hawksbill Sea Turtles are hunted and killed for their shells to make jewelry, ornamental hair combs, buttons and other luxury items. Sea turtles are in danger of becoming extinct if these illegal practices continue. You can help turn this around: Stop buying these items (opt for a fake or imitation version). http://www.conserveturtles.org/seaturtleinformation.php?page=shell_trade Advertisements
