GLOBAL MEDIA CAMPAIGN

HAS THE CAYMAN TURTLE FARM’S OUTDATED PRACTICES AND BUSINESS MODEL CAUSED ITS CRIPPLING DEBTS?
Here is a Global Press release from the WSPA (World Society for the Protection of Animals) as part of a global media strategy in relation to the Cayman Turtle Farm. Once you have perused and read the release you will see that the conditions under which the farm is operating is inhumane and goes against all values of the WSPA.
New information revealed as part of an investigation conducted by the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) into the Cayman Turtle Farm (CTF) shows disturbing evidence of animal cruelty and conservation failures, amid fresh revelations of massive debts at the government-funded facility.
WSPA believes that there are other more animal friendly and sustainable options available to protect Green sea turtles and is calling on the Cayman Turtle Farm to permanently end sea turtle farming.
The animal welfare charity presented its findings to the farm’s management team earlier this year, proposing a plan for the farm to transition its business to a sea turtle rehabilitation and research center, which could increase tourism footfall and turnover. There has been no cooperation to work along with us and hence the need for a media campaign.
