Loggerhead turtle for #worldturtleday and photos taken a few years back at a small turtle rehabilitation centre in Fuerteventura. It was amazing to see them up close, they are such beautiful, gentle creatures.

Happy #WorldTurtleDay! Many species of turtles around the world are threatened with extinction due to over exploitation for food and pets and increasing habitat destruction and need much more conservation attention. I found this remarkable baby Big-headed Turtle (Platysternon megacephalum) during a biodiversity survey in Hong Kong.

Bask in the glow—It’s World Turtle Day
For the last 20 years, on May 23, turtle lovers everywhere have emerged to honor these shelled reptiles that have roamed the Earth for more than 200 million years. The over 350 known species of turtles alive today are found on every continent, except Antarctica. But despite their wide distribution, most turtles are endangered due to loss of habitat, illegal wildlife trade, and hunting and fishing. World Turtle Day aims to change that by raising awareness about their plight and encouraging conservation efforts. So today, we invite you to stick your neck out for turtles.
Today is World Turtle-Tortoise Day!
For that you get an old photo of Camille Rowe with one of the tortoises that live at her parent’s place in Morroco.
Chicks dig Turtles. 🐢

The tv said to try new hobbies while in lock down!
Anyone in the market for a 53-year old turtle the size of a dinner plate?
An update on Ms. Jennifer! After the article on her here and in the Boston Globe today, there have been so many applications for adoption the MSPCA is not taking anymore!
So glad to hear so many people want to give her the love and moms she deserves. We just about drove over there ourselves (well me cause Zoya can’t drive)!
Vive tu vida al máximo pero disfruta de cada momento porque recuerda que al final la tortuga puede hablar más del camino que la liebre. #family #instapic #instashot #turtle #handsome #alwaysandforever #campospower
Eight and a half years ago (years before I was even an embryo in an egg!), Mom bought a big jigsaw puzzle…and then didn’t have time to work on it…until now!
Mom, how could you choose a puzzle with almost no nom colors?!?
Mom separated all the puzzle pieces by color! Now which pile is the red one?
