Over the past 18 months, our project “Wiki Loves Sea Turtle Monuments” has been enriched with fifty-four photos of sea turtle monuments from around the world. Our aim is to document the significance of sea turtles as a symbol throughout history and culture and its prevailing importance in modern times. With the help of individuals like you, we can use art as a platform for raising awareness about the plight of these amazing yet threatened species of our seas and oceans.

Recently, our good friends from The Kerulos Center, a non profit organisation in Oregon which helps animals in need, launched a crowd-funding campaign to create The Cook Islands Honu Monument to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Cook Islands.

Join us in supporting this special project and the significance that this monument stands for: protection of endangered species and the important role that arts can play in biodiversity conservation.
