First, I want to THANK YOU ALL for amazing birthday wishes, thanks. It means a lot to me, when I see how many people remembered to wish me the best of luck for the next year of my life.
We spent my birthday in city and we were having fun, and we also saw amazing tortoises. They're so cute. Sadly, when we read some of the text that was written on boards, we got to know how terribly they are treated in the world. Turtles and tortoises are very beautiful, rare and ancient animals. They deserve our respect and protection, but some people in the world use them only as a way to get money. For example, they cut off their shells, when they are still alive, and they store them like that, until someone buys them and cooks them. I’m not a vegetarian, I eat animals myself, but that’s the part of the nature. We humans were made to eat both green stuff and meat. Look at animals in the wild, they also eat other animals, but this is different. These people don’t kill the tortoises, they make them suffer, and that is the worst thing they can do. If you think these are just animals, try to imagine, if someone cut some part of your body, and then just let you lie there, suffering and not be able to do anything. This isn’t about survival and food, this is about the human cruelty. If we want turtles and tortoises to survive, thus our children will be able to see them, we must protect them. We must make people feel that a living turtle or tortoise has a higher price than dead one.
I know I don’t usually write about this stuff, but these animals are very close to my boyfriend and me. He had a tortoise himself and we want to give home to next one in the future. So please, spread the word. Let the people know.
Go to this link, it will give you more info. We must help them, or they will one day disappear from this world. Do you want to let that happen? Let the people know, we can protect these beautiful animals.
