These animals are so cute and extremly important for the environment in a whole. Most people don’t have any idea how important they are and go to beaches where they lay their eggs, killing them in desproportional amounts. Did you know that many turtkes die from asfixia because they confuse the plastic bags for jellyfish and algae? What you do on the beach has a huge impact on these little ones, and what you don’t do too. Keep the beaches clean. A plastic bag on the bin can mean the life of a turtle. You can make the change.
