Dear Wiki Loves Monuments volunteers,
We are happy to announce the launch of Wiki Loves Sea Turtle Monuments!
A brand new global project surrounding the majestic sea turtles has been
launched on Wikimedia Commons! MEDASSET (The Mediterranean Association
to Save the Sea Turtles) has set up the foundation for what we aim to be
an encyclopedic reference of sea turtle related monuments from around
Sea turtles are found in all corners of the Earth, having roamed the
world's oceans for 100 million years. Their significance as a symbol has
been commemorated by various cultures all throughout history and it will
be essential to our cause to document their emblematic status through
photographs; it will help us raise awareness about the dangers they face
because of human activity.
We were inspired by "Wiki loves monuments" and are appealing to you, the
volunteers from around the world that made Wiki Loves Monuments the most
successful photography competition in the world! Please help our project
succeed and do your part in helping our natural heritage survive!
