You Can Save Their Lives!
Sea turtles face constant threats posed by human negligence, and are often caught in fishing hooks, plastic bags and torpedo boats. These beautiful sea creatures suffer strangulation, broken bones and sometimes, even the loss of a limb.
But you can make all the difference for them – use your Bat/Bar Mitvah by spreading some good. Take action and help the only sea turtle hospital in Israel save their lives.
Sea turtles are wounded and swept ashore every year. Most don’t survive.
Dozens of sea turtles were hurt by human drilling operations in the Mediterranean Sea.
Sea turtle is facing extinction in Israel and the Mediterranean Sea.
Plastic fishing nets and litter, small sea turtles get caught and severely injured.
Celebrate Your Bat/Bar Mitvah with Them!
Luckily for those gorgeous sea turtles, you have a once in a lifetime opportunity to save them and make a special connection.
After you save a sea turtle, you become friends for life. You can name the turtle and once it recovers, follow it with a unique GPS tracking technology as it navigates through the sea.
Your contribution will also assist in constructing a brand-new sea turtle hospital that will save many other sea turtles in the region. You can give them a fighting chance to beat the threat of extinction.
