CITES: Appendix III

Chinese stripe-necked turtles are endangered in mainland China. Along with other freshwater turtles in Asia, they are considered as food, medicine and pets. The high demand for these turtles causes over-exploitation. Though there are turtle farms, some of them are not sustainable. This all leads them towards extinction.

Do not consume turtle products!
