Shopee Removes Turtle Eggs Listings On Platform After Users Complain On Social Media


On May 13, the Turtle Conservation Society of Malaysia under the handle TCSMsia posted a screenshot of a turtle eggs listing that it found on Shopee. The seller described the item as “telur penyu original Terengganu” and offered it for RM7.90 per piece. In the screenshot, the seller also had a five-star rating and the eggs had already been purchased 129 times.

TCMsia in the posting urged Shopee to screen its customers or risk getting boycotted by concerned users. It also rallied other users to raise the issue to Shopee by pressuring the platform to take action against the seller, adding that the company has a corporate social responsibility to not encourage the sale of wildlife in Malaysia.
