Hello me and my 6yr old are collecting old unwanted bras to help turtles
Wildthunder wildlife rehabilitation sanctuary are desperately in need of the hooks and eyes off bras to help mend turtle shells .
What they do :
The glue the crack on the turtle shell and use the bra hooks and eyes with zip ties to pull the shell together again till it heals ... after the shell heals the zip ties and hooks are removed and the turtle gets moved back where it came from (in most cases the wild ) thank you for reading x

I was reading about this over the weekend. I’m sure it said they had all the bras they needed and were directing people to donate money or other things...
