Happy World Turtle Day

Turtles are a species threatened with extinction, and humans are to blame. We leave nets and trash lying about in the environment where they feed, encroach upon their nesting grounds and upset the delicate birthing process, and are destroying the coral reefs where they live and sleep.

Please, today, give a thought to a turtle (and I don't mean Mitch McConnell!)
