In Asia, a vast amount of illegal harvesting of sea turtles occur and Sea Turtles 911 and local authorities rescue these turtles from poachers attempting to sell sea turtles in markets and restaurants. The rescued turtles are generally malnourished, dehydrated, suffering from severe bacterial, fungal, or viral infections, trauma from rough handling, and a host of other ailments. The sick and injured sea turtles are admitted to our sea turtle hospital and rescue centers for emergency medical care. Rehabilitation for release back into the wild requires fluids, antibiotics, antifungal medications, physical therapy, vitamins, topical ointments, and of course, lots of food. You can help provide medical and nutritional care for a rescued sea turtle by adopting your own sea turtle from China!
There are four (4) levels of adoption that can help prevent these majestic animals from disappearing on our planet. Each level provides us with different amounts of financial support for the caregiving of rescued sea turtles and educational outreach efforts to save the endangered species. All levels include an official certificate to formalize the symbolic adoption of your sea turtle. Certificates have a quick-response (QR) code on the bottom right corner, which can be scanned with a smartphone to verify the authenticity of the document. See sample certificate here.
You will also get a personal webpage for the adoption, which you can share online with your family and friends. This is a great way to surprise someone on a birthday or holiday with a personalized, online gift in their honor! See sample personal webpage here.
