Entertainer Gage has been cautioned by environmental advocacy group, Wildlife Jamaica, after he posted a video of what appeared to be a severed part of an endangered turtle.
In the video, the Deejay said what appears to be the flesh of the Hawksbill Turtle would be used to make soup.
Wildlife Jamaica reposted the entertainer’s video and urged him and Jamaicans to protect the local endangered species.
Wildlife Jamaica encouraged Jamaicans to share with The National Environment & Planning Agency NEPA information they may have regarding areas on the island where Turtles are being poached.
The organization continued by reminding Jamaicans that the Hawksbill sea turtles are critically endangered, and it is illegal to collect or kill them.
NEPA said the public should be mindful that turtles are protected under the Wildlife Protection Act.
