Global photography project “Wiki loves sea turtle monuments” 8 Jan 2014

Message from Mediterranean Association to Save the Sea Turtles (MEDASSET), through CTURTLE Network:

A brand new global project surrounding the majestic sea turtles has just been launched! Through Wikimedia, MEDASSET has set up an image database for sea turtle related outdoor monuments to which anyone can contribute, thus laying the foundation for a public domain encyclopedic reference of all sea turtle related monuments found around the world.


We were inspired by the ever popular photography contest "Wiki Loves Monuments" and hope that with your help “Wiki loves sea turtle monuments” will one day become as successful and a bridge between natural and cultural heritage. Through photography, travel and culture, we aim to inspire and raise awareness among the public about sea turtles, and also provide an open-access tool to all those involved in sea turtle conservation.
