A dozen turtles

World Turtle Day

Turtle hanging around the bottomToday is World Turtle Day, a day to highlight the plight of turtles worldwide. Pretty much every species is endangered. Some of the videos I’ve seen of turtles engulfed in plastic, discarded fishing nets, and other rubbish are just heartbreaking.

Here on Curacao we have a special place to see turtles. If you want to swim with turtles, and want to absolutely guarantee you see some, the the place to be is Playa Grandi. There are always, always, always turtles in the bay.

Yet another turtle picYou can see dozens of them most days. The fisherman clean their catch on the dock, and toss the remains into the water. Dozens of turtles hang around waiting for their chance at a free meal!
