Loggerhead Turtle Gifts for World Turtle Day

Check out Taiche's unique collection of Turtle Gifts and Turtle Home Decor. The Loggerhead is an endangered endangered sea turtle and they are represented here in marvellous sculptures, jewellery and other unique and eccentric turtle gifts and turtle home decor. If you are a lover of wildlife, conservation or sealife.

 The Loggerhead Sea Turtles (Caretta caretta) are Mediterranean marine reptiles. In Turkey one nesting site is Dalyan River Basin and their protection is supported by the Sea Turtle Conservation Foundation in Dalyan. 

  • Taiche lives very close to Dalyan/Caunos – the loggerhead turtle nests on the beach. It is a beautiful and tranquil place. Iztuzu Beach is one of the last nesting places available for the Caretta Caretta (Loggerhead) turtle and it is now a protected site. The loggerhead is listed as endangered. They are threatened by tourism development at the nesting beaches and by capture in marine fisheries. Through the summer season the nesting areas of Iztuzu Beach are restricted to allow for the turtles to lay there eggs and for the young to hatch safely.

World Turtle Day was started to increase respect and knowledge for the world’s oldest creatures. These gentle animals have been around for about 200 million years, yet they are rapidly disappearing as a result of the exotic food industry, habitat destruction and the cruel pet trade.
Adults and children can do a few small things that can help to save turtles and tortoises for the next generation. Never buy a turtle or tortoise from a pet shop as it increases demand from the wild. Never remove turtles or tortoises from the wild unless they are sick or injured. If a tortoise is crossing a busy street, pick it up and send it in the same direction it was going – if you try to make it go back, it will turn right around again.


Why not give a gift and raise the awareness of World Turtle Day: a simple way to introduce the topic of endangered species and the need for their protection to children!
