I recently painted a mural for the local library's summer reading program, Oceans of Possibilities. The sea turtle captured my heart when I was researching what to paint on the mural. As I drew and painted it, I felt its gentle, kind, and loving presence. I'm happy to make the Sea Turtle's essence available to you now in artsy fashions and gear.
The Sea Turtle is an endangered species. I'll donate $2 for each sale to a charitable cause for these wondrous creatures. In August 2022, we made a donation of $30 to the Sea Turtle Conservancy. Read the Blog article.
More about the sea turtle and their plight.
"Over the last 200 years, human activities have tipped the scales against the survival of these ancient mariners. Slaughtered for their eggs, meat, skin, and shells, sea turtles suffer from poaching and over-exploitation. They also face habitat destruction and accidental capture—known as bycatch—in fishing gear. Climate change has an impact on turtle nesting sites; it alters sand temperatures, which then affects the sex of hatchlings. Nearly all species of sea turtle are now classified as endangered, with three of the seven existing species being critically endangered." - https://www.worldwildlife.org/species/sea-turtle
