Sir Paul Mccartney - Paul Sir Paul Mccartney Calls For End To Sea Turtle Farming

Sir Paul Mccartney has thrown his support behind a campaign to end the scandal of breeding sea turtles for food.

A facility in the Cayman Islands, a resort in the Caribbean, has been identified by officials at the World Society for the Protection of Animals (Wspa) as the world's last surviving commercial turtle farm.

Staff at the base breed the endangered marine reptiles for human consumption, and The Beatles star has now joined the Wspa's campaign to end the trade.

In a post on his official website, MCCartney writes, "The Cayman Turtle Farm is the last place on Earth that breeds endangered sea turtles for food", adding on Twitter.com,"There is no humane way to farm sea turtles. Support Wspa campaign to stop sea turtle farming."

A Wspa spokesman says, "To have Sir Paul MCCartney's support for this campaign is tremendous and we hope that people will join him and Wspa in helping to save the Cayman Islands' green sea turtles."
