Sustainability as well as environmental, climate and species protection are of course particularly important to me as a budding biologist.

Thus, I try to make my contribution in my sphere of influence, such as my personal environment.

A "Turtle Island" sponsorship is a great gift, and can also be combined with a trip to the sponsored animal. On behalf of my son, I gave my wife Bianca a sponsorship for a European tortoise for Mother's Day this year.

Ever since I was 4 years old, I have been fascinated by turtles. Why this is so, I can not even say exactly. My heart simply beats full of enthusiasm for these wonderful animals. And I feel responsibility for their protection and the preservation of their species. I wanted to pass on this enthusiasm as well as the responsibility to the next generation. That's why I gave my daughter a sponsorship.

For me, it's also part of supporting initiatives like Turtle Island via Amazon Smile. I think that Turtle Island - even as a relatively small initiative - makes a very valuable contribution to making our world a little bit better and more worth living in.

"Humans are in a special position to be aware of the threats of our time and to be able to act against them. Turtle Island takes a part of the related, big responsibility and protects endangered species of turtles that depend on our help. To be able to support this with a small contribution as part of the sponsorship is something great!"
