Show Carnival Cruise Line we won’t back down
Crammed together, mishandled, and eaten
Cayman Turtle Centre: Island Wildlife Encounter (CTC) in the Cayman Islands is the only attraction in the world where tourists can handle farmed sea turtles.
Formerly known as Cayman Turtle Farm, the venue recently underwent a sleek, friendlier-looking rebrand. However, the centre still intensively breeds thousands of endangered green sea turtles and enables tourists to eat their meat.
The Cayman Turtle Centre is the last sea turtle farm known to breed sea turtles for human consumption. But there is no humane way to farm these wild animals.
Cruise company Carnival Cruise Line sends tens of thousands of tourists to Cayman Turtle Centre every year.
Incredibly, 129,203 of you used your voice to demand Carnival Cruise Line does the right thing for these endangered wild animals. Please share this achievement on Facebook or Twitter now, to show Carnival how many people care.
One of the world’s cruellest attractions
Sea turtle farming is listed as one of the top 10 cruellest wildlife tourist attractions in our 2016 report Checking out of cruelty.
Conditions at the Cayman Turtle Centre make it impossible for turtles to express natural behaviours.
