Stop sea turtle farming

The problem

  • 9,500 endangered green sea turtles are living in captivity in the Cayman Islands, crushed together, diseased and bred for meat.

The solution

  • The Cayman Turtle Farm must become a proper sea turtle rehabilitation and release facility, to protect the green sea turtles in its care.

What we're doing

  • We are working with the Cayman Islands Government to change things for the better at the Cayman Turtle Farm.

Saving sea turtles

Life at the Cayman Turtle Farm – the last turtle farm on earth – is a living hell for the endangered sea turtles trapped there.

We won’t stop until sea turtle farming stops

Crushed together in filthy tanks, the naturally solitary sea turtles at the Cayman Turtle Farm are so stressed they can turn on each other, biting and maiming.

In-breeding at the Farm is also a problem – some sea turtles suffer genetic defects. Some are even born without eyes.

This cruelty is all in pursuit of profit. While a few lucky sea turtles are released into the wild, far more will be slaughtered and sold as steaks or burgers.
