On the eve of World Turtle Day, the world’s largest travel website - TripAdvisor - has removed the sale of tickets to the Cayman Turtle Centre, where over 5,000 endangered sea turtles live in horrific conditions.

Pressure is growing for countries to reduce marine litter and meet United Nations commitments. The Global Ghost Gear Initiative (GGGI) we lead is taking on a key role to help countries find practical solutions.
We’ve identified holding sea turtles as one of the ten cruelest wildlife tourist attractions. At the Cayman Turtle Farm, tourists can handle turtles, potentially causing unnecessary suffering for the animals.
