Turtle Vigilante-ism

Nov 15, 2008 at 1:13 PM

THose of you who remember my recent post about turtle eggs and ATVs need to put your heads together.

The ATVs are illegal on the beach, specifically to protect these endangered turtles. And I think fewer turistas would rent ATVs and zoooom along the beach if they knew this.

No one tells them. Only locals know it.

So I want to make a beach sign. I can go to a local print shop and have it made up, one for each entrance to the beach. Just help me come up with a pictogram. I'll try to allow images in comments if I can.

Or explain it. I need a quick simple pictogram that is not in any one language - this place gets tourists from everywhere - that can be read in less than a second and says basically "Hey You, get the hell off the turtle eggs!" that I can place beside the ubiquitous circle and slash with an ATV inside it.

Please I just want these guys to all KNOW what they are doing. Then I can get mad in earnest when I see this happening.

    I love the picture!!! Actually I do tell people, and this is why I don't rent ATVs and make commission on them, it would just be way too much of an overt to make money on that crap
