Calypso Blue V is the name, and spreading awareness is my game! Listen up friends, I want to let you in on a little thing called trawling in commercial fishing. This large weird-looking net gets dragged behind a boat or two and basically catches everything in its way, including us sea turtles. We get all tangled up in these nets and even if we’re able to get away, we can end up with some serious injuries from the equipment. The great folks at Atlantis Resort have already pledged to help me out. Now I need you to cheer me on in this race so our cause can be heard and we can bring awareness to this serious problem! Sea turtles should not be caught in ANY nets. I mean, come on guys, this isn’t Pokémon, we don’t “gotta catch ‘em all!”
I was named by my Sponsor, Atlantis Paradise Island. Check out my marathon migration map, where you can follow along as I swim to raise awarness about the threat of Commercial Trawl Fisheries to sea turtles. Please help me raise awareness about my cause by supporting me!
