Are you passionate about saving endangered animals from extinction?
Are you interested in promoting a good cause?
If yes, this is your opportunity to make a difference in the world.
Did you know that thousands of endangered sea turtles are slaughtered every year in Asia? Because Hawaii is such a wonderful refuge for sea turtles, it's easy to forget that in other places in the world, sea turtles are still the victims of human consumption. In Asia, green sea turtles (Honu) are killed for their meat, and hawksbill sea turtles (Honu'ea) are killed for their shells.
Many tourists in Hawaii are from Asia, where the illegal poaching and trade of endangered sea turtles are happening everyday. Together, our goal is to give the turtles a voice and educate the tourists about both the devastating decline of the turtle populations in Asia, including plastic pollution issues, and what they can do to help, such as adopting a sea turtle to give them a chance of survival. By educating tourists effectively, they return to their home countries and stop buying products made from sea turtles, thereby reducing the market demand and supply of endangered sea turtles.
To assist with this conservation effort in Hawaii and China, non-profit organization Sea Turtles 911 is looking for a Brand Ambassador to speak to the public on behalf of the marine turtle species by giving a voice for their survival.
