World Ocean Day
Take a deep dive into World Ocean Day!
It’s a time to celebrate the vast depths of our cooling seas and the vibrant plant life, spectacular animals, and colourful fish that call the water home. The day might inspire you to make some art.
Our Sea Animals collection include the likes of turtles, sword fish, sharks and star fish; why not find yours and place them in your own seascape made from natural and recycled materials? Find stones for your seabed, repurpose branches and leaves as seaweed, use packaging plastics for water, old bubble wrap to make jellyfish and scraps of tin foil for shoals of fish. You could even reimagine a toy boat into an underwater wreck!
TUI Turtle Aid: Protecting Our Precious Sea Turtles
Did you know that sea turtles have been around for over 100 million years? Despite this impressive history, six out of seven species of sea turtles are now classified as "critically endangered," "endangered," or "vulnerable" on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species – the most comprehensive inventory of global plant and animal conservation status.
Sadly, only one in a thousand baby turtles will survive to adulthood under natural conditions. Although turtles spend most of their lives in the water, they lay their eggs on land, making them vulnerable to poachers who hunt them down illegally. Their eggs and hatchlings are also at risk of destruction from irresponsible beach use. Ingesting plastic bags, which they mistake for jellyfish - one of their main food sources - also poses a risk and can cause suffocation.
Coastal development and climate change are also major threats to the survival of sea turtles. Let's work together to protect these magnificent creatures and ensure that they continue to thrive in our oceans for generations to come.
