Turtle Day!!!
.
Well the first thing to know is that Turtles and Tortoises are not the same thing, though this day is dedicated to celebrating and protecting both. First created in 1990 by the American Tortoise Rescue, World Turtle day recognizes that some species of our hard (and soft!) shelled friends are suffering, almost on the edge of extinction due to environmental hazards and issues with hunting and harvesting of their eggs.
.
American Tortoise Rescue was created by Susan Tellem and Mashall Thompson, a married pair of animal activists who had a particular passion for tortoises. We all have to have something that drives us in this life, and for these two it was bonding over animal right’s activist work. Don’t think these two are just closet hippies with an overwhelming adoration for all things shelled and scaly.
.
Susan is deeply involved with television arts & sciences and the public relations society of America while being a partner in Tellem Grody Public Relations Incorporated. They organize charity collections and works around the world to help protect these amazing critters, and created Turtle Day to get everyone involved and spread awareness of the shrinking habitat and declining numbers of these sensitive creatures.

[May 23rd] World Turtle Day #worldturtleday

🐢 Happy #WorldTurtleDay! 🐢 Did you know South Africa's waters are home to no fewer than 5 of the world's 7 species of turtle - the Leatherback, Loggerhead, Olive Ridley, Green and the Hawkbill? Photo by @thisiskzn #MeetSouthAfrica

Happy #WorldTurtleDay!
This green turtle is gliding through the waters of West Palm Beach, Florida. Green turtles are widely harvested for meat in many tropical countries. An estimated 100,000 are killed in the Indo-Australian archipelago each year. Their main threats arise from habitat loss and degradation, wildlife trade, bycatch, climate change and pollution.

240 Jahre alt ist die mutmaßlich älteste, lebendige Schildkröte auf der Welt. Zum heutigen Welt-Schildkröten-Tag, wünschen wir "Alles Gute" :-) #turtleday #turtles #cute #cutepie #weltschildkrötentag

Happy world turtle day! I’ve always thought of sea turtles as my spirit animal... Coincidentally, this painting of baby turtles making their way into the sea is part of my artwork sale! The link is in my profile if you fancy a look 👀 I’m going to find a charity that helps sea turtles & sea life to donate a percentage of the profits to. If you know any good ones let me know!

Happy #WorldTurtleDay 🐢! You can help protect these little guys by reducing your plastic waste - plastic ending up in the ocean is a severe risk to them. Say NO to single use coffee cups and YES to happy turtles 🐢

Over een paar weken ga ik weer op vakantie naar Zakynthos. Het strand waar ik graag kwam was Dafni Beach. Overal op het strand liggen nesten van schildpadden en heb je het turtle island als uitzicht 🐢 •
