Tortoises are among the most endangered species on the planet, and a good shell can fetch tens of thousands of dollars. In order to protect the world’s tortoises, conservationists are defacing their most desirable asset: the shell. For years conservationists have struggled to preserve the remaining tortoises only to face increased hunting and poaching. But after taking away the thing that attracts buyers, like the shell, the threat may become a bit more manageable.
