Turtle Time

I came across this website about the endangered "leatherback sea turtle". The organization is committed to protecting the sea turtles. A small thing you can do to help is by disposing of your plastic bags appropriately, or by not using plastic bags at all! One of the big dangers to sea turtles are plastic bags, because they look like the turtles' food -jelly fish. The Great Turtle Race tags nesting turtles, and then tracks them to learn more about the species, and how they might be able to help them.

You can watch the progress of the traveling turtles to their various destinations. You can even "adopt" a turtle. To learn more about them, visit www.greatturtlerace.com
