$1000 reward for Turtle Poaching Information
Although put this story was new news in 2008, its worth repeating. NOAA Office of Law Enforcement is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest or conviction of sea turtle poachers in the Marianas. Federal fines are substantially greater than those issued by the local government... up to $25,000 in civil penalties, up to $100,000 in criminal penalties and up to a year in jail. Read an article in Saipan Tribune on the subject here.
