no humane way
to farm sea turtles
Sea turtles are amazing. These solitary swimmers cover thousands of miles. So just imagine the cruelty of trapping one in a small filthy tank. Now imagine hundreds, thousands. Packed together, sea turtles get sick and stressed. They turn on each other. Tourists that pay to ‘meet’ these sensitive animals might not recognise the bite wounds, or know that handling them is mental torment.
The farm targets these same tourists again when it ends the turtles’ miserable lives, slaughtering them for sale as steaks and burgers. We think sea turtles deserve better. Let’s stop sea turtle farming today.
What's the problem with Sea Turtle Farming?
Conditions at the Cayman Turtle Farm make it impossible for the turtles to express their natural behaviour and can lead to disease, injury and even cannibalism.
To understand why, take a look at our awesome infographic. And make sure everyone else sees it too – share it on Facebook and help others to understand why sea turtle farming has to stop.
The last sea turtle farm on earth
With sandy beaches and crystal waters, the Cayman Islands looks close to paradise. But it is home to a living hell: the last turtle farm on earth. This tropical coastline should be a haven for wildlife and a heaven for wildlife lovers. But the Cayman Turtle Farm is an exploitative blot on the landscape, farming sea turtles long after any other such enterprises have shut down. The end of sea turtle faming here would mean an end to this horror worldwide. Help us make this happen.
