Be in style when you’re out and about and on the beach with this stainless steel travel or picnic mug featuring a turtle with decorated shell and limbs. Use and show as a symbolic reminder of the environmental threats facing all turtles.
The illustration on the shell of a map showing the continents of Earth aims to focus attention on the global threats facing the marine turtle. Six of the seven species of marine turtles are listed as endangered or critically endangered, and the outlook is bleak. In the Pacific, leatherback turtles are quickly heading for extinction, and in the Mediterranean, green turtle numbers have significantly declined.
Marine turtles have the potential to reproduce abundantly with a mother laying hundreds of eggs in one nesting season, but few young turtles survive their first year of life, as they are often at the mercy of human and natural predators as they make their way from the nest to the sea and in the shallow waters. It takes decades for surviving juveniles to reach maturity and start to breed, and adult turtles must live to reproduce over many years if the population is to thrive. But escalating mortality on the high seas, in the nets and long-lines of fishing fleets, and from pollution and disease, means fewer and fewer turtles are living long enough to reproduce. Effective conservation means protecting turtles and their environment at all stages of their life cycle.
The design is easy to customize and personalize. Use your own text or use the Customize It option to access the editing tools to edit, move or remove text, move and resize the turtles, and to change the background and border color. Or select a different drinking vessel - a ceramic mug, frosted glass, or commemorative stein.
