The whole genus of Cuora, are very demonstrably depleted in the wild, with several species classed as extinct in their natural habitat. The reason for this, can be attributed to an unsustainable trade which is reported, documented and widely accepted.
Your reference to "sustainable take" needs, I would suggest to be qualified and explained?
Where do you get your information from?
