Posters in Santa Maria

"This turtle was born in Sal around 20 years ago.  She nested in 2008 and was tagged and then named 'Linda' by a young girl in Santa Maria.

This is how her life ended on Costa Fragata. 

Not only was her life lost but the lives of hundreds of turtles that would have been born from her eggs left scattered around her body.


Join the fight!  Save Sal's turtles for future generations.

Call 132 if you know anyone killing turtles or selling turtle meat."
