International Turtle Day on Lord Howe Island

The intention of World Turtle Day, May 23, backed and promoted since 2000 by American Tortoise Rescue, is to build awareness to, and expand global knowledge of and respect for, turtles and tortoises, and encourage humanity to help them survive and increase population.

Lord Howe Island is a unique location in that it is central to many species of sea turtles.
