Asia is home to a diverse and interesting array of turtle species. Unfortunately many of these turtles are now threatened or endangered. One of the biggest problems these reptiles face is harvesting for food. Turtles are harvested more then any other reptile. Over 30 million turtles are harvested ever year in Asia alone for the food industry! This harvesting from the wild has devastating effects on the natural populations of turtles. Please sign the petition below to show you are against the company Tesco selling live turtles in their stores. A customer can choose to have the turtle they have purchased butchered alive in the supermarket, or they can choose to take the turtle home to end its life in whatever manner they choose, before cooking and eating it.

If any of you are unaware of how turtles can be killed in Asia, or feel that there is not an urgent need to sign this petition, here is a VERY GRAPHIC animation to help show you why your signature is very much needed.
