Most of us can’t quite afford to buy land to protect our shell friends, but there are lots of other ways we can be a part of saving the many at-risk turtle and tortoise populations!!
- Donate what you can to organizations working to save turtles and tortoises (like the turtle conservancy!)
- Find and support your local rescue and rehab organizations
- Find alternatives to plastic straws and other plastics that pollute our oceans and injure our shell friends.
- Volunteer to clean up beaches, Sanctuaries, and areas our shell friends live.
- Spread the word about the issues facing turtles and tortoises and why it’s so important we do our part to keep them around for generations to come!
