    Sir Paul McCartney wants to help end the scandal of breeding sea turtles for food. Maca is noted for his vegetarianism and his animal rights support.

    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.

    The endangered marine reptiles are bred for human consumption. Not cool.

    Maca posted his displeasure, posting tweets: "The Cayman Turtle Farm is the last place on Earth that breeds endangered sea turtles for food. There is no humane way to farm sea turtles. Support WSPA campaign to stop sea turtle farming."

    A WSPA spokesman said, "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."

    Can you join Paul McCartney to support this cause?
