At 5 years old, I convinced my grandpa to release a hawksbill sea turtle (which is a rare delicacy on my home island, Saipan) back into the sea. My grandma told me that I threatened to call the cops if my grandpa didn’t free the poor thing. I’m glad I was adamant about it. One saved turtle is way better than none! #EndangeredSpeciesDay

You knew in your heart that little one needed to be free. Hero of the shells!
