SVG to observe world turtle day May 23rd

The National Environmental Day Commemoration Committee (NEDCC) will observe World Turtle Day on May 23, 2019, under the international theme “Adopt, Don’t Shop.”

World Turtle Day was created by American Tortoise Rescue (ATR), a nonprofit organization established in 1990, to advocate for the protection of all species of tortoise and turtle.

On May 23, 2019, the NEDCC encourages Vincentians to learn more about the endangered turtles of SVG and their importance; not only to their habitat, but to our lives as well.

We also remind the general public to kindly adhere to the total ban on the harvesting of Marine Turtles including eggs and be good stewards in conserving marine turtles.
