Hello we are Jessica & Rebecca we are 17 years old and we want to help make a difference.
On 6th July 2019 we will be travelling to Sri Lanka to an area called kaikawala, here we will spend a week looking after turtles and making sure they are released into the sea for their highest chance of survival. Whilst in Sri Lanka we will be partaking in other activities for example, beach cleans and taking care of their hatchery.
"Unfortunately, sea turtle populations around the world are on a sharp decline due to natural predators and severe human interference. One of the biggest problems in Sri Lanka is the human poachers, who miss-handle the eggs to sell to the turtle sanctuaries or to locals as a source of food or medicine."
