Today I learned so much about the rehabilitation of sea turtles and ways that I can help to keep them safe in their homes. It’s so sad to see them chased out of their natural homes & hurt by our carelessness. It was eye opening to see how even letting balloons fly off in the air can be detrimental to so many animals, especially sea turtles who mistake them for yummy jellyfish. I’m glad I had the opportunity to meet so many people who have dedicated their lives to making the oceans a lot safer for sea creatures and care enough to help the sea turtles return back home.


The incredible work of the sea turtle rescue and rehab facilities world wide. Respect and support!
