Smile For Life: Two turtles tagged

Two turtles have been tagged in December and released back to the sea. Turtle protection project - Smile For Life from Sanyang is running a by-catch programme with the fishermen of Sanyang village. All fishermen in Sanyang are registered with Smile For Life. If they catch a turtle, they inform them so they can give a turtle the second chance for life.

Through community outreach, education, by-catch programs, beach patrols and running two turtle hatcheries Smile For Life Gambia aims to protect the sea turtles. SFLG works together with local communities to create awareness off the important role turtles have in the ecosystem, the threats they are facing and work on solutions how to mitigate them. In order to do so, we need all hands-on deck to make the difference!

Their aim is also to ensure that no matter what the future will bring on their way, they expand their impact – implement new strategies, engage more partners, and most importantly, protect more turtles.
