Christine Turtle Illustrated T-Shirt



Turtle Illustrated T-Shirt by Christine Das

On Reptiles Awareness Day, WWF-Malaysia and artist Christine Das launched a beautifully designed T-shirt, with all sales proceeds to be channeled to WWF-Malaysia’s conservation efforts, including protecting turtles.

For more than 100 million years marine turtles have covered vast distances across the world’s oceans, performing a vital and integral role in marine and coastal ecosystems. These gentle reptiles of the sea swim great distances and come on land only to nest. They are known for their longevity among local cultures. Over the last 200 years, human activities have tipped the scales against the survival of these ancient mariners. Sadly, the number of marine turtles in most places has plummeted and some populations are on the brink of extinction. Urgent action is needed to ensure their future. See more here.
