Save the Sea Turtles
You may be hearing a lot about Earth Day in the month of April, but we believe every day should be Earth Day! That is why one of the missions of the EcoMermaids.Com "Tribe" is to save the sea turtles always and we have the swag to prove it.
The featured photo for this blog post is from the time I went swimming with sea turtles in Maui, HI. We did not book a tour- we just got ready, went snorkeling and there they were! It was an incredible experience that I wish everyone could enjoy. It's good for the body, mind and spirit. It also made me think about these peaceful animals and how we need to do our part to save one of the planet's endangered species. I was so happy to capture a turtle eating on camera, however, most sea turtles accidentally eat plastic. Once ingested, it can cause a lot of problems for these harmless turtles.
Think about some small changes you and your friends/family could make while still living your life to the fullest. Help spread the word with our sea turtle egg hatchlings or sea turtle bracelets. Wear our new reef-safe sunscreen in the ocean and use a bamboo straw or toothbrush instead of plastic ones. You could be making a positive difference whether you see it or not so, keep it up and know that those small changes will also help the following businesses we support that work to save the sea turtles too:
- The Sea Turtle Conservancy
- Marine Life Rescue Project
- The Ocean Conservancy
- Loggerhead Marine Life Center.
