Costa Rica defends its sea turtles against tourist throng
tourists thwarting nesting sea turtles caused outrage and disgust when they went viral on social media two weeks ago. Sea turtles are once again arriving at Costa Rica’s Ostional beach to nest and this time they will receive a more respectful welcome, Costa Rican authorities promise. Officials from the country’s Environment Ministry Worker’s Union have put stricter controls in place on Ostional Beach and on the tourists and guides who want to view the nesting sea turtles.
