Our daughter released a baby turtle to the sea. I didn´t like the big mascot turtle being in such shallow water in his pool- perhaps they could add something to make it´s life a bit more interesting?

It is nice that people care about endangered species. The Turtle Project definitely contributes to awareness, but no more than that. It seems that the big turtle in its small and too shallow pool suffers.
