Thats awesome, yeah, my Bearded dragon is pretty lazy, my leopard geckos all have thier own personality but my crested geckos are probably my favorite. Im not nearly intelligant enough to handle all that fancy knowledge and education it would take to get a degree in anything. The most expensive part of volunteering is the plane ticket, there are alot that need people at all times, http://www.intiwarayassi.org/articles/volunteer_animal_refuge/become_a_volunteer.html is the link to the rescue in bolivia I am planning on going to, no turtles but lots og pumas and other jungle animals that need help. What kind of turtles did you have? in my area all I ever see is red ear sliders
Thats really cool, I am heading to south america in a couple months to volunteer with a couple organizations, and one of them is a turtle rescue. Can I ask what made you change your mind from being a herp? I have a few geckos and a beardie right now.
Sea turtles fucking rock, and "hero" seems to be a full waste of skin, but its really good that you took the time to stick up for give actual facts for the benefit of everyone else that reads that thread. Just wanted to say thanks!
Thanks for your posts in response to some hero. They made me really fucking angry -- I adore sea turtles and can't tolerate such staggering ignorance and indifference to the world around you. Hopefully others will take notice and educate themselves ^_^
