    World Wildlife Day: UK provides a helping hand to turtles and mangroves

    Fauna & Flora International has been working to protect marine turtles in Nicaragua for 15 years

    Sunday 3 March marks United Nations World Wildlife Day. The theme for this year is, ‘Life below water: for people and planet’. One of the key animals whose plight is being highlighted is the turtle, which are targeted for their eggs, meat and shells. The animal has also suffered from habitat loss due to construction on coastlines.
