Meet Bank, the green sea turtle who lives in Thailand!
A photo of Bank taken four days before her surgery, her belly filled with nearly 1,000 coins.

When my husband told me the story of Bank, the green sea turtle, all I could do was shake my head. Fortunately, her story seems to be having a happy turnout. This is just one of the crazy, almost tragic, things that people can do to sea turtles, harming them without thinking.
There are more photos in the story that you can see of this beautiful green sea turtle, Bank. Once you read this, you’ll understand her nickname. Hopefully you haven’t heard it yet. I couldn’t get the link to go to the Yahoo news page directly, so you’ll have to go to my art page on Facebook and then click on the link there. Sorry about that! It is a short article, though. Please go check it out. Tell me what you think!
Here’s her story:
Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂
P. S. If you ever see a sea turtle in a pool anywhere…please don’t toss it a coin!!!
These flowers were in the yard of the bed and breakfast that my family and I went on vacation to in Crescent City, CA, last summer. It’s a beautiful place with wonderful hosts! Check it out!
Eventually I plan to do a painting of them.
