Turtle Trade

The sea turtle is a symbol of fortune and longevity in Chinese culture. Folk legends refer to hawksbills as one of the four celestial guardian animals. Ironically, the symbolic importance and cultural respect for the animal has helped drive demand for sea turtle products, which are highly prized ornaments and ingredients in traditional medicine. As income levels in China have risen these products have become more affordable.
