Environmental Education – Sea Turtles
You can assist in local initiatives to help prevent the extinction of the sea turtle population!
In nature, sea turtles face a host of obstacles to their survival. It is estimated that only 1 in 1000 hatchlings will survive to adulthood. Human intrusions into their natural habitats, such as harvesting for consumption, illegal shell trade, ingestion and entanglement of plastic debris, are a major factor in the decline in population. By helping educate the local population about this issue, you can make a difference.
