Turtles and Insperation
How Zander Srodes help to save the sea turtles
The baby sea turtles climb out of their tiny white eggshells and look around. All of them, more or less, know what they have to do and they start flipper-walking towards the ocean.
Zander Srodes was eleven when he realised that he wanted to, needed to, help the sea turtles. Between distraction, predators, and humans, the sea turtles have a lot of things stopping them from walking down that beach and getting to the ocean. Zander Srodes works for a rather unpopular cause. Yet he does it all the same. I would say he is someone to be remembered.
Fireworks and decisions
Turtles. Children, and books
Zander is twenty one now and still helping the sea turtles. He wrote a book (that was illustrated by the lady Linda Soderquist) called turtle talks. It has been sold around the world and translated into six different languages. He inspired many, and is still doing so. Children are starting to help save the sea turtles just because they read his book. Therefore, raising awareness about the whole turtle problem that has only gotten worse since Zander was eleven. I don’t know if the turtles will ever be saved, but we can try. The kids, adults, Zander, you and me. We can all help to save the sea turtles. Just remember this, my friend,: Like MANY other endangered animals, the sea turtles have been hurt by humans most of all.
