Dial: They must be held accountable
Chair of the non-governmental organisation, Animals are Humans Too, Nalini Dial, is calling on Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar to launch a full investigation into the killing of hundreds of baby turtles in Grand Riviere. The turtles and hatchlings were destroyed while workers were re-routing a river, which was posing a threat to a hotel and other buildings.
Dial said her organisation was “aghast and distressed at the mindless, needless, callous killing of hundreds of baby turtle hatchlings.” She said the development was another demonstration of the lack of concern the People’s Partnership and the Environmental Management Authority (EMA) show to the voiceless people.
Dial said the perpetrators of the act should be held accountable. She said the leatherback turtles are an endangered species and must be protected, and anyone found guilty of harming them should be punishable by law.
