Photographer's Note

This is a part of the 220 preserved leatherback turtles which were confiscated by the Marine Police near the Mengalum Sea after they intercepted a Chinese registered fishing trawler. The trawler is from Hainan, China. The 17 fishing crews were detained.
Too bad all of them are dead. It's shame that humans keep on killing the wildlife without concern for their extinction. Its sad how there is such evil people in the world willing to do anything to earn that extra dollar.
All 220 leatherback turtles are meant to be sold for decoration in Mainland China. The leatherbacks are seen here on the Marine Police jetty in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
