One of the most interesting pictures I saw this week comes from Sir Richard Branson — Leatherback turtle hatchlings making their way down to the ocean at Necker Island’s Turtle Beach.

In his article he explains: “As it is a matter of livelihood for some, Necker Island and other neighbouring resorts and restaurants have made a commitment to change the marketplace and purchase the invasive species of Lionfish, keeping turtles at their highest value alive. Several years ago Minister Saboto Ceasar of St Vincent lead a compelling campaign to protect turtles in St Vincent & The Grenadines. His campaign was called ‘No Extinction in my Generation’ and we are committed to empowering the BVI to follow St Vincent’s admirable path towards total protection.”
