Today is World Turtle Day! A day when turtles are #shellebrated, get it? May 23 is observed the world over to create awareness of and share knowledge about the protection of turtles. The sea turtles that abound in Meeru Island Resort & Spa waters are part of a species that has lived for more than 150 years! The way you travel to Meeru to seek sun, sea and sand, sea turtles often travel for thousands of miles, crossing oceans as they feed, before returning home. The common species spotted around here is the Olive Ridley Sea Turtle. Here are our favourite photos of sea turtles taken by you.
