diving with turtles

i find sea turtles one of the most friendly looking sea creatures. james gets to see them all the time whenever he goes diving – i still hope i get to swim near one soon!

unfortunately turtles are an endangered species… mainly due to turtle fishing and oil spills from cargo ships (!!).

they really are surprising creatures – suzie, an adult green turtle, and the first to be tagged by the turks and caicos islands turtle project, undertook an incredible 6,000 kms round trip in 2009 and 2010 – read more about her story here.
