Conservationists on Pulau Mabul are all excited with the discovery of the first two-headed turtle from 13,000 hatchlings released previously.
While a dead manta ray is worth US$500, a live one rakes in US$3.5 million a year in diving receipts, says a researcher.
Foreign divers, who expect to see manta rays alive and swimming, should not be exposed to such slaughter by fishermen, says minister.
A shark protection association official says foreigners pay up to RM4,000 for a diving trip to see creatures such as manta rays underwater but today they saw fishermen slaughter them onshore.
