World Turtle Day

Filed under: #satscene —— Sylvia @ 22:51

So I’m doing my standard search around to find interesting things to say about the 23rd of May and it turns out it is World Turtle Day which sounds pretty neat but when I tried to find out more I got this.
World Turtle Day

May 23 is designated World Turtle Day, a day to celebrate turtles and examine ways to enhance turtle conservation efforts, as turtles in the wild are increasingly threatened by a variety of pressures. One threat to wild turtle populations, unfortunately, includes the pet trade. Turtles can be wonderful pets but need a great deal of care and dedication. Read more about various species of turtles, including aquatic turtles, box turtles, and tortoises in About Turtles and Tortoises.

I was a bit leery of clicking through to what sounded to me like a porn website but I was brave and did it anyway and it turned out it’s not Her Parts but in fact Herp Arts which didn’t actually make me feel much better about it until my boyfriend pointed out that herpetology is the study of amphibians and nothing to do with sexually transmitted diseases.

So now you know.

Meanwhile, on to this week’s Saturday Scenes!
