  1. How is Turtle Poaching more important than the UK Embassy reopening? Or Afghanistan vowing to end the disease Polio by the end of the year? Or even the Hostages in the Philippines escaping the Islamic Militants? Vice News you need to learn what Click-Bait means.

  2. El problema es que se gastan lo que es de el pueblo para ellos ( gobierno ) den ayuda a esa gente para que deje de comer y traficar tortugas, yo se que no es forma de salir adelante pero esa gente lo hace por pobreza.

  3. i support droning poachers.. filthy bastards are destroying our ecosystem, and to be frank that should be considered a very serious harsh crime… if a poacher is caught poaching repeatedly he should be executed on the spot… but try not to hurt the poor turtles as you do so ;(

  4. I live in England. England is not the same as the United Kingdom. The United Kingdom is a sovereign state, whereas England is the most populous region of the UK, which has the confusing title of a constituent 'country' despite not being sovereign. Philipp Hammond is the British Foreign Secretary Testtube ffs
