This article by the BBC states that two thirds of the turtles that appear on the beaches are killed.
It shows a picture of some men dragging a leatherback off the beach with a tractor.
For me this is very upsetting, and this approach is one we constantly face when we try to protect these animals.
The article states that 6 new sanctuaries are being set up along the coast.
I am trying to set up a sanctuary along a 20 km stretch of coast in the Volta region of Ghana.
If you would like to help save these turtles, please have a look at the website and get in touch with me.
I need your help! I am struggling to do this on my own.
