Climate change and pollution impact sea turtles

Save Turtles Poster

This month alone, thousands of sea turtles have been impacted by two major climate and environmental disasters.

Save Sea Turtles from Oil Spill in Israel

Israel was hit by the biggest oil spill from an unknown tanker at sea. (Because no one has taken responsibility !!) Beaches along the coast have been covered by toxic and sticky tar. Thousands of volunteers took to the beaches to clean up, a difficult task that may take years to recover from.

Sea animals have been hit and turtles wash up on the beach covered with tar inside and out.  National Sea Turtle Rescue Center in Israel  and Ecoocean, as well as hundreds of volunteers, have been rescuing turtles from the disaster

Save Turtles from cold stun in Texas, US

Following the exceedingly cold weather, the water temperature in the golf has dropped. Did you know that turtles, unlike other sea animals, are unable to survive in extreme cold temperatures? They can go into a cold stun. A chock condition that inhibits mobility and can lead to drowning.

More than 5000 turtles have been rescued from drowning by volunteers at the Sea Turtle Inc

Not to mention, that Over 1 million marine animals (including mammals, fish, sharks, turtles, and birds) are killed each year due to plastic debris in the ocean (Source: Unesco Facts & Figures on Marine Pollution)
