Turtles show their faces on Church Street
The Bermuda Post Office has marked the 50th anniversary of the Bermuda Turtle Project with a series of postal panels featuring special stamps.
The panels, on display on the Church Street side of the General Post Office in Hamilton, was unveiled by Lovitta Foggo, Minister for the Cabinet Office.
The Bermuda Turtle Project was launched in 1968 to study and protect sea turtles.
Scientists have examined and analysed information from more than 4,000 green turtles and 138 hawksbill turtles found in Bermuda’s inshore waters.
More than 1,500 green turtles have been tracked, creating one of the largest databanks in the world on growth rates, habitat use and movements of immature green turtles. The unveiling was timed to recognise World Post Day on Tuesday.
