chris tobin's insight:

In Balikpapan, East Kalimantan (Southeast Sulawesi) , 2000 turtle eggs from an endanged turtle species almost extinct have been confiscated and people arrested since trading of turtle eggs is banned.  The eggs were destined to Bau Bau.

East Kalimantan is under scrutiny since conservationists are trying to conserve the forests and wildlife.
