Kuwait's environment authority alarmed at turtle's killing
May 30, 2014, 12:04 pm

he Environment Public Authority (EPA) is alarmed by pictures showing a group of persons killing a turtle and condemns the act an "an environmental crime and inhumane action."

This act, spread on electronic social media, "is a great shock and grave unjust action where the turtle is killed in an inhuman way with no sense of responsibility whatsoever," stated Mohammad Al-Enezi, EPA's deputy director general, in remarks to KUNA.

EPA is offering a reward of KD 3,000 for anyone who presents information about those who wasted life of the turtle, he declared, stressing legal action would be taken against those who were involved in this act.

Some species of turtles live on and off the Kuwaiti islands and the authorities advise against any act that may harm them or disturb their habitat.
