You can help protect endangered BVI turtles

My wife and I are delighted to have had the privilege of swimming with endangered sea turtles in the BVI during our bareboat adventures over the last 30 years.

Please sign the petition at the link below to urge the BVI to stop the harvest of critically endangered sea turtles so that future generations can enjoy seeing them in the wild.

The only place I know of where it's illegal to hunt them is in US waters.
They're on the menu in most eastern Caribbean islands.
It St Martin there's a restaurant on the water that has them in a cage for the diners to choose sort of like Lobsters.
I personally like them and to eat one would be like eating your pet.
