Turtle Take Over

With everything from fish returning to the Venice canals, to deers in the streets of London, nature is starting to take full advantage of everyone staying at home – and turtles are no exception.

This week, it was reported that leather-backs (the largest of all living turtles) have made an incredible amount of nests on its beaches – more than at any time during two decades.

This has saved it’s species, due to being at risk of extinction from fishing and poaching.

With no dogs or people swarming to the beach – they have a high chance of all surviving until they hatch – go turtles go!

Whatever the craving, Instagram has got it all! From Pret A Manger’s dreamy vegan chocolate cookies, to Federal Cafe’s famous banana bread.
