Ciel Peric started this petition to Donald J. Trump (President)

Picture this, A female sea turtle is looking for a quiet, safe place to lay her eggs, the place she lays these eggs will determine their chance of survival, once she has found them the perfect spot she will swim back into the ocean and return again in another year. well if only it were this simple, Sea turtles today have to compete with all the coastal residences, hotels and houses all lining the beach for the use of the soft sand

During the months of December to March, baby sea turtles hatch, however disoriented by all the light from the bustling cities they find themselves wandering in the direction the light only to end their life in the most gruesome ways, run over by cars and trapped in drains and holes. 

This is seriously affecting sea turtle populations and certain species of turtles are on the verge of extinction. It honestly breaks my heart and fills me with immense sadness to think that thousands of one of our most beloved animals die like this every year, this is why I am calling out U.S president Donald trump for not doing anything about this

there are many things that the U.S government could be doing such as

  1. using low pressure sodium-vapour lighting
  2. using turtle safe lighting
  3. tinting windows that face the beach

 these small changes could save the sea turtle species, if only the government was willing to make them, This is why I am asking you to sign and share this petition to help save our turtles and make this world just a little bit better

for the sake of our turtles and environment, please share this petition and help save our sea turtles, before its too late.
