{Admiring Florida Nature, The Author Is Celebrating This Fabulous World Turtle Day To Be Aware With Respect For All Turtles To Protect Them In Their Environmental Way}

“Steadily Slow”

May 23, 2024

By Kimmy Foulds

Every day is turtle day and today is a remarkable two decades of awareness that marks the annual holiday on May 23rd bringing together conservationists, scientists and turtle enthusiasts from around the globe to celebrate gorgeous turtle creatures of all delicate wildlife features.

Sponsored by American Tortoise Rescue, World Turtle Day is a yearly observance every May 23rd since 2000 where this fest is dedicated to showing love and adoration towards every turtle species to protect them with dignity in their various habitats and significant honorable kindness.

Both tortoises and turtles are tremendous in their respective ecosystems, as the thicker back legs and dome shaped shells of herbivore tortoises slowly roam on land, while sea turtles swim steadily in water and thrust forward on shore by digging their flippers into sand to lay eggs in dug burrows, whereas omnivore dome shaped shells of box turtles stand solely living on territorial solid ground and retreat into their shells when danger distinctly and innately yells.

Contributing to the majestic chelonians, the author writes this tribute as “The Turtle Song” reveals a grooving soothing relaxing state of mind to slow down in time to remind one of enjoying ever little inch of life, good or bad, that God grants as daily blessed breathing gifts unknown ahead.

Among many critical precautions for chelonians’ safety, please pick up trash, fill in any holes one has created on the beach or inland and remember the importance of low or no lights for all chelonians at night, as bright glares will steer them away from their homes and especially lost sea turtles trying to return to their ocean flourishing domains.

 “For we live by faith, not by sight.,” 2 Corinthians 5:7 New International Version (NIV) of the Christian Bible; Still, the best-selling book of All time.

Reflect, from sunrise to sunset.
