This is a photograph taken last week on the marine project... a perfectly preserved and beautiful stranded green turtle. We couldn't determine the cause of death as it appeared intact with no injury visible. One of the major problems with sea turtles is injestion of plastics discarded into the ocean; so this could have been the case here. One of the main things GVI is trying to promote in Kenya is a respect and appreciation for the marine environment; to reduce littering and unsustainable resource use. Lets hope we do not see any more turtles like this.
