Adopt a Turtle

Only 1 in 10,000 marine turtles survives from hatchling to maturity. Thousands die each year from eating or becoming entangled in non-biodegradable debris and still, even though there are laws forbidding it, the demand for sea turtle meat, eggs, shells, leather and oil continues to reduce their numbers. Thousands more drown in drift nets which are cast into our oceans every night.

The further development of beach resorts around the world is also affecting turtle numbers as newborn turtles are becoming confused by the bright lights of discos, beach bars and cafes, causing them to wander inland where they quickly become disorientated, exhausted and easy prey for predators.
