Currently, all seven species of turtle are considered threatened or endangered. These ancient creatures have been on Earth for more than 100 million years, dwelling in shallow seagrass beds of the Indian Ocean, to the sandy beaches of the Eastern Pacific — even surviving the dinosaurs when they became extinct 65 million years ago. However, over the past 200 years, human activities have tipped the scales against the survival of these ancient mariners. They are captured and killed for their eggs, meat, skin, and shells. Alongside this, the effects of climate change have an impact on turtle nesting sites altering sand temperatures and habitats.
Turtles are an everlasting symbol of longevity, endurance, persistence, and the continuation of life (sometimes against incredible odds). They are a reminder of both ancient wisdom and understanding, that strengths our resolve in the chaos of everyday life. The Turtle Necklace is beautifully handmade and crafted with eco-friendlynickel-free materials.
