Don’t worry, I didn’t either until my dear friend Ruth alerted me to it. It’s an initiative of The Wilderness Society as a way of raising community and government awareness of the importance of protecting our oceans so that these beautiful creatures can have a great habitat to live in. It was so easy to participate. We simply had to build a turtle sculpture out of sand, photograph it and send it in, so that the collected photos could be presented to the appropriate government body.
The great thing was, we had a lot of fun in the process AND we get to be part of sending a very important message to policy makers!
I just love our interesting, varied, family-based learning lifestyle! And I love that we don’t spend all day every day staring at each other across the kitchen table. There are so many wonderful experiences out in the “big wide world”, and so much living to be done. And we get to share it with wonderful family friends. What a beautiful way to live!
