Petition for Sea Turtles

Hello all,
I just wanted to make you all aware of a petition. My friend, who was in the Peace Corps in the Kingdom of Tonga, saw first hand how the turtles were treated there: laid on their backs to die of dehydration, then they were eaten. She said that you could hear them cry while they were awaiting their final breath. "It breaks your heart to see such an ancient, majestic animal die like that. The people of Tonga do it so the meat will be fresh for a big feast; everyone honors the King. And if he asked them to stop, they would." Please help by signing the petition and send along to your friends. Thanks for reading!! -Kathy
Despite the fact that most species are endangered it is still permitted to catch and kill marine turtles in the Kingdom.
