Stop sea turtle farming

The problem

  • At the Cayman Turtle Farm, 9,500 endangered green sea turtles are farmed for meat
  • Packed in filthy tanks, turtles get so stressed they bite and maim each other
  • It’s the last facility of its kind anywhere, and tourists are encouraged to handle turtles.

The solution

  • These amazing creatures deserve a better, natural life
  • The Cayman Turtle Farm must stop farming turtles for meat
  • The farm should – and can – become a turtle rehabilitation and release facility.

What we’re doing

  • We’re urging Cayman Turtle Farm to stop meat production and start turtle rehabilitation and release
  • We’re asking supporters around the world to join our campaign.

Support our campaign to stop sea turtle farming

It’s time to stop turtles suffering. Help turn this farm into a rehabilitation and release facility.

Sea turtles are solitary animals and natural swimmers – able to cover thousands of miles

But at the Cayman Turtle Farm, turtles are forced to live in cramped, crowded tanks. Biting, sickness and stress are problems – as is inbreeding, with some turtles born without eyes. Animals are slaughtered for meat, which is sold to tourists in restaurants as steaks and burgers. But the transformation from turtle farm to rehabilitation and release centre has happened before. It can happen again. Join our campaign to stop sea turtle farming
