16th June is world sea turtle day
8 months ago

Ivory

 16 June 2014

Monday is World Sea Turtle Day, a day when we celebrate some of the ocean’s most beautiful and ancient creatures.

Here at HSI, we’re working to protect these animals from the many threats they face, including habitat loss, commercial fishing operations that take sea turtles as by-catch, and poachers who sell shells as souvenirs and eggs for human consumption.

Help us protect these animals on World Sea Turtle Day. Pledge not to buy products made from sea turtles or other any wild animals.

Many tourists will be exposed to the international wildlife trade all over the world, often without even realizing it. In the Cayman Islands, visitors are allowed to hold sea turtles kept in overcrowded and unsanitary concrete tanks. As the animals continue to reproduce, the older ones are slaughtered for their meat and shells that are sold in tourist or craft shops.

And sea turtles aren’t the only victims. Wildlife products are everywhere, and they all take their toll. From elephant ivory to shark teeth, from marine shows to roadside zoos, annually, millions of animals are shot, poisoned, trapped or stolen to become pets, entertainment or souvenirs.

But you can help. Sign our Don’t Buy Wild pledge today, and help us protect sea turtles and wild animals from the cruel trade in wildlife products.

Humans are the biggest reason for the endangerment of these wild and beautiful animals, and we’re the ones who must save them.

Please be the reason for their protection, not their extinction. Take the pledge today: Don’t Buy Wild.
