The last week of January was like a little trade fair marathon: from 21 to 29 January on the BOOT in Düsseldorf and from 26 to 29 January at the travel fair FESPO in Zurich, our teams from Germany, Switzerland and Liechtenstein informed interested visitors the threats and the protection of the sea turtles. This was made possible by the Association of German Scuba Divers (Verband Deutscher Sporttaucher, VDST) and the diving tour organizer WeDive, who generously provided us with space at their stands. The highlight of the week was the draw of our Turtle Foundation Raffle at the FESPO on Sunday. We would like to thank all participants who supported our projects by buying tickets, VDST and WeDive for their great support, the sponsors of the many great prizes, and congratulate the lucky winners! The winners’ ticket numbers are available at www.turtle-foundation.org/en/tf-raffle/.
