  1. I’m so thrilled the community see’s a 360 view of conservation. When you can clean the enviroment and find a way to make money, it’s the greatest way to get the story out.
    I was sicked this morning, 1,500 endangered turtosies and baby turtles were stuffed, taped together in luggage. They know who did it but he fled before they could catch him. Sadly many died. It broke my heart to see the baby turtles taped up. I feel helpless when I hear these stories. Hope your off to a great day. 🙂

    1. Yeah, turtles get targeted a lot by the bad people who use wildlife for wrong reasons. When the local communities get to understand and appreciate conservation, great things happen.
