Adopt a Turtle
(From WWF Adopt an Animal)
Every year over 250,000 marine turtles drown by becoming entangled in fishing lines and nets that choke the world’s oceans, but adopting a Hawksbill Turtle or Leatherback Turtle you can help WWF halt the devastation.
The Hawksbill Turtle lives in the waters around Fiji, and you will be adopting one of five females who return each year to nest on Talice beach, on the uninhabited island of Yadua Taba. WWF use painless flipper tags to track and record the turtles’ locations. This helps them to find out more about their movement patterns and also enables them to share the knowledge to help their endangered species throughout the world.

Latest from the Blog
There are as little as 100 Royal Bengal tigers now living in Bangladesh’s Sunderbans forest which is much less that what was previously through according to the latest data. Based on a survey that made use of hidden cameras, forestry officials counted 106 wild tigers on the Bangladeshi side of the largest mangrove swamp in the world. It is estimated that on the Indian side there are about 74 tigers left.
Elephants, tigers and rhinos could all be saved from the threat of poaching by a collar which monitors their heart rates combined with a video camera and a global-tracking device. According to Paul O’Donoghue, chief scientific adviser for British conservation company Protect, the instant a poaching event occurs, the heart rate monitor will trigger an alarm that pinpoints the animal’s location within a few metres. This essentially means park rangers can be at the scene of the event within minutes by helicopter leaving not enough time for poachers to harvest the animal parts or make an escape.
