, are currently being exploited at rates that may be unsustainable. In fact, trade from many Caribbean countries is known or suspected to be unsustainable, and illegal harvest, including fishing of the species in foreign waters and subsequent illegal international trade, is a common and widespread problem in the region. The Caribbean "International Queen Conch Initiative" is an attempt at a fisheries management scheme for this species. In 2010, Shirley penned a long blog entry at FlipCollective.com about Haiti and the consequences of its earthquake (2010 Haiti earthquake). He begins the entry by stating that he has not donated to relief efforts in Haiti and "probably will not... for the same reason that I don't give money to homeless men on the street. Based on past experiences, I don’t think the guy with the sign that reads 'Need You’re Help' is going to do anything constructive with the dollar I might give him. If I use history as my guide, I don’t think the people of Haiti will do much with my money either." WikiPedia:Haiti Dmoz:Regional Caribbean Haiti Commons:Category:Haiti
