Today's artwork for my @aoklife and @wwfphilippines collab is  a sea turtle.

I'm always reminded of a joke by George Carlin where he suggest that “plastic" could be the answer to our age-old philosophical question “Why are we here?” It's funny until you see marine animals wrapped in plastic. There was even a National Skip the Straw Day that was first celebrated last Feb. 24, so people would stop using drinking straw for at least a day. "Seven different species of sea (or marine) turtles grace our ocean waters, from the shallow seagrass beds of the Indian Ocean, to the colorful reefs of the Coral Triangle, and even the sandy beaches of the Eastern Pacific. WWF’s work on sea turtles focuses on five of those species: green, hawksbill, loggerhead, leatherback and olive ridley.

Human activities have tipped the scales against the survival of these ancient mariners. Nearly all species of sea turtle are classified as Endangered. Slaughtered for their eggs, meat, skin and shells, sea turtles suffer from poaching and over-exploitation. They also face habitat destruction and accidental capture in fishing gear. Climate change has an impact on turtle nesting sites. It alters sand temperatures, which then affects the sex of hatchlings. 
WWF is committed to stop the decline of sea turtles and work for the recovery of the species. We work to secure environments in which both turtles—and the people that depend upon them—can survive into the future. "
