Toys benefit Turtle Farm

The sale of Sir Turtle plush toys at Tortuga Duty Free and retail shops throughout Grand Cayman will help the Turtle Farm in Cayman.

Each green turtle toy sells for US $15, of which $5 will be donated to the Cayman Turtle Farm: Island Wildlife Encounter.

“Last year’s gulf oil disaster reinforced the vital conservation work of the Cayman Turtle Farm,” said Robert Hamaty, founder of the Tortuga Rum Company Ltd. “By introducing Sir Turtle toys, we want to bring attention and provide support for their research and release efforts to save the endangered green sea turtle. We think that thousands of island visitors will want to take home Sir Turtle while contributing to the preservation of sea turtles.” Tortuga received permission from the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism to use the “Sir Turtle” name.
