4,000 turtles are in a warehouse. The warehouse is in the Philippines. People caught these turtles. They want to move them to China.

People in China buy the turtles. They keep them as pets. They also eat them or use them as medicine.

Other people find these turtles. The turtles are in very bad conditions. At least 90 turtles are dead. One thousand turtles need help. People help them. People save all of the turtles.

Difficult words: warehouse (a house where you put many things), caught (past of “catch”), condition (how something is).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
