Protecting Turtles This October

Our Turtle Protection Team has been patrolling the beaches along the coast of Ghana this October. So far they have managed to protect 14 Olive Ridley Turtles, and 5 Leatherback Turtles. Sadly, they have also found 3 Leatherback’s that were killed.

GE DIGITAL CAMERASo, the turtles are again coming up onto the beaches to lay their eggs. I worry each year that they might not arrive, considering the threats they face from huge commercial fishing fleets and from all the plastic rubbish in the sea. But here they are again, thank God. And, without the protection of this team, kindly funded by friends in the UK, they all would have been killed on the beach. So, thank you everyone who has become involved in protecting these beautiful animals.
