Green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas) is on the government's list of endangered precious and rare species prioritized for protection. Over the past time, the authorities in Con Dao had criminally treated many cases of storing, transporting, as well as trading green sea turtles. Years ago, they also discovered a case of catching a green sea turtle and slaughtering it for meat, organs and eggs but it was on land.
