Disturbing images show eagle ray killed - apparently by tourists
Images of an eagle ray lying dead on yacht has sparked criticism in the Maldives. One of the pictures show eagle on the beach upside down while a wooden stick is poked into the mouth. Tourists visiting Maldives to experience beauty of nature must not kill but protect these creatures.
Eagle rays are one of the most attractive marine lives found in the Maldives. Sting rays are more common and Eagle Rays are quite rare.
Share this to advocate protection of eagle rays.
Anyone knows if eagle ray is legally protected in Maldives. We could not find any info on Environment Protection Agency website. It seems we will have to pay a visit to them to check on this.
@maldivesfinest these people should feel the full weight of the law! !!
@paul we are spreading this in hope that authorities go after these people.
There will be no fine or punishing ......
Sad but it is like that
@michael If this goes to mass media and stirs public attention then I think the authorities will take action. The private yacht could still be in Maldives and might have killed a lot more other species. Thanks for your concern. Please SHARE.
