May 23, World Turtle Day.
Since 2000, this date was created to bring attention to, and increase knowledge of and respect for, turtles and tortoises, and encourage human action to help them survive and thrive.
We are all part of the same planet...let's live in harmony!!!
Unfortunately it's a sight that's all too common in the Pacific--sea turtles wrapped up in longline gear set by local commerical fishermen in search of tuna and dorado. This gear kills indiscriminately. Turtles, seabirds, marlin, sailfish--all fall prey. "Like" if you want the killing to STOP!
Here's another shot from Capt. Ed Thompson in the D.R.
