  1. I love turtles! You did a great job on the background and information about the turtle....great images. I think that you should focus on a particular stance on what you feel is the best way to help these critters thrive again. I feel you gave a lot of great information on what is trying to be done, but maybe personalize the site a bit more. Great start though! On a side note, this is the only page that we can comment on, so you might need to ask someone how to enable comments for each page.
