Yeh for Games, Inc. partners with The Ritz Carlton Hotels & Resorts, to educate the public about the need to protect sea turtles. These events, which take place on the 15th of every month, are part of an ongoing project where 15% of all sales made on YehforGames.com go to the conservation of sea turtles. The Ritz Carlton is a perfect partner in our quest to save the sea turtles. Their venue and reputation gives us a lot of opportunities to arrange conservation events and the many tourists visiting the hotel make it possible for us to educate a large number of people on how to protect sea turtles.
YEH Staff educate Kids on Sea Turtles
Apart from short term measures, such as rehabilitating injured sea turtles, it is important to also focus on encouraging future generations to help protect sea turtles so that we can ensure their survival in the long run. That is why during some of these events, children are invited to play a variety of games with Yeh for Games staff to learn about sea turtle conservation. For example, they pretend to be sea turtle hatchlings making their way through an obstacle course of human threats by crawling through fishing nets, dodging parents acting as poachers, and selecting a picture of the correct food item: jelly fish or plastic bag. By playing games with Yeh for Games staff, children become acquainted with the plight of the sea turtles; thereby instilling the concept of marine conservation at a young age. At the end of the events, children make a promise to help protect sea turtles and are awarded a certificate where they are designated the title "Sea Turtle Guardian Angel."
These children events are just one of the many conservation events that are held in cooperation between Yeh for Games Inc. and The Ritz Carlton. The unusual dual of a hotel resort and a gaming company are brought together with common goals in mind and sea turtles at heart. Together they will be instrumental in The Burning Crusade® to save sea turtles from extinction.
