Happy Earth Day!

Have a wonderful Earth Day 2013!

How can you help sea turtles?
  1. Give up unsustainable seafood. 
    • If you don't know where it comes from and how it was caught, then don't eat it. Simple, right? 
    • Shrimp, for example, often are fished in unsustainable ways that drown or harm sea turtles. 
    • That tuna sushi that you love might have come from a fishing boat using longline fishing, which kills lots of wildlife. And if you're eating bluefin tuna, you might be eating an endangered species!
  2. Give up single-use plastic.
    • Bring your own reusable bag when shopping and say no to plastic bags.
    • Bring your own water bottle instead of buying bottled water.
    • Skip the straw or bring your own instead of using plastic straws.
  3. Drive less.
    • Really? Yes, the less you drive or do other things that generate carbon pollution, the more that you help reduce the problem of climate change, which is a serious threat to our oceans and sea turtles.
    • As an alternative, relax on public transportation, walk, or enjoy a fun bike ride to your destination.
  4. Enjoy sea turtles from a distance.
    • If you're lucky enough to see a sea turtle in the wild, then don't bother it. Just enjoy it from a distance and let it enjoy its day.
Don't forget that World Oceans Day is coming on June 8!
