Natural Cuprite Bead Stretch Band - Save the Sea Turtles
Handmade with stunning natural cuprite and high grade marble. One of our newer adaptations to the "Save the Sea Turtles" movement!
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
