  1. here is a king size story for you to ponder,
    it has been proven that feeding the green turtles ,the garbage they are fed daily by catamarans and other boats that actually hit them with their propellers.
    possibly now would be the time to really look at what you are doing in barbados.putting up a front about caring about turtles .because the stupid tourist want to swim with them.or face the truth.
    which is–https://www.facebook.com/notes/barbados-sea-turtle-project/swimming-with-turtles-in-barbados/233500173375352

    and further to that —-Adam Hanlon Interesting video. I really don’t like the behaviour here-of the turtles and the people feeding them. Whilst I am not against feeding per se, this seems like a very unnatural event.

    Adam Hanlon Whilst I am glad you are feeding them with a better bait, you are still changing their behaviour by feeding and interacting with them so vigorously. It does not sit well with me, but then others may find it acceptable…

    Adam Hanlon So are you a tour operator offering these feeding sessions? If so, the fact that others may well not behave as well as you do, doesn’t change the fact that you are altering these turtles behavior (arguably to their detriment) for your commercial benefit..

    Adam Hanlon Once again, the fact that other people are doing it badly, and that they were seen historically as a food source, does not really excuse you exploiting them…I am all for interaction, and as I said above am not against feeding per se, but prefer to see interaction when the animal chooses it.

    Adam Hanlon Well if you weren’t encouraging them to aggregate in big groups by feeding them (in order for you to make money from them), they would not be there in big groups for people to run through on jet skis. The fact that this is happening shows that the feeding is having a negative effect at some level.

    Adam Hanlon How does that defend your behavior? Whilst you feed these animals, you are as guilty of chasing the dollar as anyone else? I don’t think that scale is an issue, you are either part of the problem or part of the solution?

  2. turtle project allows Barbadian businesses to still feed and cause harm to
    the turtles everyday . and yet hide behind saving the sea turtles.
    what a crock.
