Crammed together, mishandled and eaten

World Animal Protection E-News

Cayman Turtle Centre: Island Wildlife Encounter (CTC) in the Cayman Islands is the only attraction in the world where tourists can handle farmed sea turtles.

Conditions at CTC make it impossible for turtles to express natural behavior.

Sea turtles farmed at the venue cannot enjoy the freedom they would in the wild. Instead, they are subjected to unfit living conditions, and exploited in the name of tourist entertainment.

CTC heavily relies on cruise ships for customers. More than 200,00 people visit the attraction each year, and around three quarters are cruise passengers.

Around 20% of the world’s cruise passengers travel on Carnival Cruise Lines ships. Carnival is incredibly influential and must lead by example.

Other tourism industry leaders such as Thomas Cook have listened to our supporters and made changes to their businesses to better protect wildlife. It’s time Carnival Cruise Lines helped move the world to protect animals too.
