Bionic Buzz® got to cover the Grand Opening of Turtyle at Nickelodeon Studios. Founding members of the Turtyle are environmentally civic minded individuals who value our planet and its ecosystem. After being advocates for recycling and reusing our pile of garbage, the viral video of the struggling sea turtle was seen on the internet, the person in the video was attempting to remove plastic straw from the nasal of the sea turtle. The entire process seemed so impacting and exacerbating, the turtle was in pain suffering from breathing and it was an emotional moment for the world to view.
