The Green Turtle

The Green Turtle
by Gabriel Constans

This “totally green” drink is one of Kermit the Frog’s favorites. It is also well liked by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Mr. Green Jeans, and the ’60s rock group, The Turtles. Soy milk is high in protein. Kelp is filled with iodine and, in small quantities, is reported to decrease negative thyroid conditions.

Over 100 Million Years Old

Dear Gabriel,

Adopt a sea turtle for a loved one this holiday season – and be a part of the urgent fight to save these ancient creatures.

When you adopt a sea turtle before December 1, you’ll get 10% off. Just enter the code EARLYBIRD at checkout. Shipping is free!»

All seven species of sea turtle are over 100 million years old, making them some of the very few animals to survive since the time of the dinosaurs.

Many migrate across entire oceans every year from their feeding grounds to the beaches where they lay their eggs.

Along that route, they face danger. Many turtles are caught in fishing nets and held under water for hours – left to struggle for air and then drown.

But with your help, we can save them. Adopt a sea turtle and play an important role in reducing the dangers these amazing creatures face every day.

Don’t wait! The holidays are just around the corner. Adopt a sea turtle or other ocean animal and get 10% off before December 1 when you enter the code EARLYBIRD at checkout.

Adopting a sea turtle is easy. With one $75 gift, you’ll send your loved one an amazing gift unlike any other, all while helping protect these ancient creatures. Included in the sea turtle adoption pack:

• Cuddly plush sea turtle
• Personalized adoption certificate
• Sea turtle cookie cutter
• Seasonal cookie recipe
• Knowledge that their adoption is helping sea turtles around the world.

For just $5 extra, we’ll do the gift wrapping for you – and if you want to make your gift greener, you can send the certificate electronically!

And the best part? Shipping with delivery by Christmas is free for a limited time.

Oceana is working hard to win protections for sea turtles and other animals that get brutally killed as bycatch. Adopt a sea turtle today to make sure those efforts stay strong in the coming year.

Sea turtles need advocates – and by adopting one you’re becoming one of their strongest supporters. Adopt a sea turtle or other ocean animal today – shipping is free!

With so many sea turtles at risk, the right choice for gifts this season is adoptions. Thank you for all that you do.

For sea turtles everywhere,

Sea Turtles Survive

Dear Gabriel,

Every North American sea turtle is at risk—but we can save them together

Donate now to win important protections for sea turtles and the oceans we share»

Have you ever had the chance to see a sea turtle in the wild?

It’s no surprise if you haven’t. Six different species of sea turtles live in North American waters, but thanks to disappearing nesting beaches and destructive fishing gear, every single one of them is listed by the federal government as being threatened or endangered with extinction.

Sea turtles and the oceans that depend on them are in trouble – and we need your help if we’re going to save them. Give now to help reach our goal of $100,000 by the December 31st deadline.

Every year, sea turtle nests get crushed by people and cars. The baby turtles that hatch must get past a slew of predators in the air and water. And the precious few that make it into deeper waters and adulthood must somehow survive a gauntlet of fishing hooks and gear that kill thousands of turtles each year.

We can’t keep losing so many sea turtles. Not only are sea turtles a vital part of a healthy ocean ecosystem, they are some of the oldest living animals on our planet. Unless we do more to protect sea turtles now, our children and grandchildren may never get a chance to know these incredible creatures.

Thankfully, there is good news. Because of your financial support, Oceana has won many important victories, saving thousands of sea turtles and improving the health of our oceans.

Just this past summer, we took action to stop thousands of needless turtle deaths in the Gulf of Mexico. Our researchers uncovered shrimpers illegally using nets without turtle escape hatches. Without these escape hatches, sea turtles get trapped under water and drown to death. Your support allowed us to expose this crime against sea turtles and our oceans, and it will allow us to hold the government accountable for enforcing the law.

This kind of victory couldn’t have happened without your support. And if we’re going to build on that progress and win more, we’ll need your help once more.

Oceana is the largest organization in the world that takes a comprehensive approach to protecting sea turtles in every ocean at every stage of their life. We play a critical role by looking at how one fishery’s activities add to another’s, and at how protecting turtles in one ocean can impact the other side of the planet. Your contribution will fund our campaigns to protect areas sea turtles need in order to recover, and to hold the government accountable under the Endangered Species Act.

Be the reason we can save sea turtles today – and prevent an ocean with no turtles tomorrow. Make a tax-deductible donation to Oceana today.

For the oceans,
Tatiana Marshall
Oceana
