Prior to 1950, an estimated 10 million Olive Ridley turtles nested each year on Mexico's southern coast.  By 1988, just before Mexico banned their harvest, the population had dropped to just 40,000. Now, just shy of a million Olive Ridleys nest each year, primarily on three beaches in Oaxaca. 

This popular poster can be translated as:

My man 
doesn´t need 
turtle 
eggs.

Because he knows that they don´t make him more potent.

Then there´s a number to call to report egg harvesting, and a photo of three little turtles.
