Braided Charm Bracelet - Save the Sea Turtles
WHY WE CREATED THIS BRACELET?
On May 31st, 2013 a 26 year old Costa Rican environmentalist, Jairo Mora, was murdered because of his good heart and strong will to protect Costa Rican leatherback turtles from poachers. Mora was a biology student, and worked for the Wider Caribbean Sea Turtle Conservation Network (Widecast), a non-profit organization. Jairo Mora knew that the Sea Turtle population was declining rapidly, and felt the need to strongly voice this truth. After he posted on his Facebook page making a plea to the police to take action against the poachers on Moin Beach, in Costa Rica, the hueveros (egg thieves) felt he was a threat.
-Rest in Peace, Jairo Mora, Turtle Conservationist
