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.
