Sup kids, the name’s Turpac. The peeps over at Pacsafe recruited me to join their Tour de Turtles Team. What can I say? I’m basically a living legend in the Archie Carr Refuge these days. They need me to swim as far as I can to help spread the word about some whack longline fisheries. To help out the cause, I wrote a little rap I’d like to share with everyone, “When I talk about turtles all you see is the struggle/ When I tell you there’s a longline, you tell me it’s trouble.” Do you like it? I ain’t mad atcha if you don’t. I’ll admit the chorus needs some work, but that’s no excuse not to cheer for me during the race! Help me spread the word about the dangers of longline fisheries. I want to make sure we keep spending most our lives “living in a turtles’ paradise.”

I was named by my Sponsor, Pacsafe. Check out my marathon migration map, where you can follow along as I swim to raise awarness about the threat of Commercial Longline Fisheries to sea turtles. Please help me raise awareness about my cause by supporting me!
