I write on behalf of Anglesey Sea Zoo in support of The Turtle Trials Project. We are pleased to support The Turtle Trials and commend your excellent efforts to support conservation of tortoises and turtles. As well as educating the public about these issues, supporting and teaching young people about Sign Language is vitally important. We thoroughly enjoyed working with your team here at the Sea Zoo and particularly working with a team whose values so align with our own. We are pleased to offer our support, as well as to commend the organizers and participants who are responsible for bringing this creative project to life.
