There is a cultural tradition of hunting and harvesting sea turtles every year around this time in Saint Lucia. While I am all for cultural diversity and understand that turtles were once an important food source for the fishing villages, it is now time to put an end to this practice. The turtle population is in serious decline and is now listed as an endangered species. I would like the same action which saved the St. Lucia parrot to now help the sea turtles. Our island is becoming a very important tourism destination, lets keep it that way and in fact lets make it even better.
I am donating this 40″ x 30″ silk painting, titled “Paradise”, retail value US$5000. I will hold a draw on Facebook once we reach 1000 shares. So spread the word, tell your friends, tell everyone you can to help my friends the St. Lucia sea turtle by Sharing and signing the petition below:
Please note that in order to take part in this draw you only need to share the Facebook post of this blog, you are not obligated to sign the petition, but it would be appreciated if you did.
