Urge global cruise line to boycott turtle cruelty

Carnival Cruise Lines ships tens of thousands of tourists to Cayman Turtle Centre each year, where sea turtles are abused for entertainment and farmed for meat.
The turtles suffer inhumane treatment living in cramped tanks, and are regularly handled by tourists which causes the turtles stress and physical injury. The breeding conditions often cause genetic birth defects, including turtles being born without eyes.
These conditions cannot be allowed to persist.
Around 20% of the world’s cruise passengers travel on Carnival Cruise Lines ships. The business is incredibly influential and must lead by example.
Cayman Turtle Centre heavily relies on cruise ships for customers. More than 200,000 people visit the attraction each year, and around three quarters are cruise liner passengers.
We’ve repeatedly contacted Carnival Cruise Lines since January. But despite making our welfare concerns clear, the company won’t agree to stop taking boatloads of tourists to this cruel attraction.
Other tourism industry leaders such as Thomas Cook have listened to our supporters and made changes to their businesses to better protect wildlife. It’s time Carnival Cruise Lines helped move the world to protect animals too.
Please sign our petition to Carnival Cruise Lines now, and urge the company to take responsibility for these endangered wild animals.
