Statistics say that very few baby turtles have much chance of survival… in fact, it’s almost as low as 1 in 1,000. This is why it is so important that we do what we can (yay education!) to deter poaching and to work with kids and families to help them to understand how sea turtles are not only beautiful and majestic creatures, but also by protecting them they will continue to come back to their same beaches. In turn, those beaches will continue to be protected.
The experience is now engrained in me forever! The overall results of WILDCOAST’s work resulted in an impressive 1.5 million turtles returning to lay eggs this past year, which was an incredible 50% increase over last year.
I will always support keeping marine life safe, and our oceans clean. I stopped using plastic grocery bags several years ago, but now I’ve stopped using disposable straws. We all play a part, and this is just another opportunity to help. You can always check-out their annual donation and volunteering opportunities at http://www.wildcoast.net/take-action
Our sea-life says thanks in advance. ;-)
