The day was established to help people celebrate and protect turtles and tortoises including their disappearing habitats around the world!
  1. Task 1 Show your support!

    Write a letter campaigning to help keep a turtle's sensitive habitat preserved or closed to off road vehicles, and to prevent things such as off shore drilling that can lead to more endangered sea turtle deaths.

    There is some really helpful information here about turtle habitats and some great resources from the WWF about how and why turtles are an endangered species.

    Write a post, or upload a letter outlining how and why we need to be more considerate of turtles and their habitats.
