Cayman Turtle Farm repudiates WSPA charges

Cayman Islands sea turtle conservation centre responds to attack on its operations by UK-based organisation
Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands 
Friday, 12th October, 2012... The Cayman Turtle Farm: Island Wildlife Encounter, an entity in existence for over 40 years dedicated to sea turtle research, reproduction, display and conservation, is today fighting serious and spurious claims made by the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) against its operations.
In its purported quest to "shut down sea turtle farming," the WSPA is making grave allegations against the world's only sea turtle farming and conservation organisation that has reached the landmark achievement of a second generation of captive-bred sea turtles - the Cayman Turtle Farm.
The Cayman Turtle Farm is taking these allegations very seriously, as the organisation focuses on its mission to be a world-renowned attraction where guests enjoy quality interaction with animals in a safe environment which promotes sea turtle conservation through research and education.
The Cayman Turtle Farm sees this effort to shut down our operations as completely incompatible with the WSPA's claims that the organisation hopes to assist the Cayman Turtle Farm to transition to a model the WSPA finds more acceptable to its aims. That claim is in itself contradictory given that the WSPA has also claimed that sea turtles cannot be humanely held in captivity.
