hawksbill turtle

  • HawksbillThe effort to save the world continues. For the third year in succession, the members of the organization TiME (This is My Earth) have managed to raise funds to purchase an area to turn it into a nature reserve, thereby saving the species that live there and are in danger of extinction. This year, for the first time, TiME will purchase a maritime area – a coral reef off the coast of Belize. The members of the organization – which is open to anyone of any age from anywhere in the world – will thereby help save the hawksbill and leatherback turtles, the goliath groupers, and other species of animals and maritime flora, all of which are at varying levels of risk of extinction. “Until now we have saved areas of land, but now for the first time we have an opportunity to save an area of sea. The atoll – an island created on the basis of a coral reef – is amazingly beautiful, and many developers would be happy to purchase the area and exploit it. That would almost certainly harm the species that live there, which already face the real and existential threat of extinction,” explained Prof. Uri Shanas, the founder of TiME.
