This story makes me want to stand up and salute:
The Royal Thai Navy is a major force for sea turtle conservation in Thailand. For more than half a century, the navy has limited its training exercises around sea turtle nesting beaches at Sattahip on its Khram Island base. And for nearly two decades, it has supported a sea turtle conservation center (open for visits!) that annually releases 20,000 baby green and hawksbill turtles to the wild. It's getting well deserved attention for its work, too.
You can do your part for sea turtles by making turtle- and ocean-friendly seafood choices using our Seafood Watch pocket guides. And if a trip to Thailand's not in your plans, you can see juvenile sea turtles at the Monterey Bay Aquarium when we open our next special exhibition, "Hot Pink Flamingos," on March 29.
