Is it time to race already?? **Yawn** Sorry I’m so tired, I spent last night out on the town to shellebrate my debut in the Tour de Turtles! My name is Mojito but I’m commonly known as Moji around these waters. I don’t know if you’ve noticed yet but my shell happens to be quite a work of art. I’m not about to nest on just any beach with this masterpiece on my carapace! Unfortunately, instead of just admiring me, some humans want to take my gorgeous shell and make it into art of their own, like jewelry. While I’m all for a good statement necklace, I don’t think hurting sea turtles is a very nice statement, do you? And what am I supposed to do without my shell, be a naked turtle?! I sure hope your answer is no and you join me and my friends at the Sea Turtle Conservancy in raising a glass and spreading the word about the illegal shell trade. Remember, you can look but you can’t touch!

I was named by my Sponsor, Sea Turtle Conservancy. Check out my marathon migration map, where you can follow along as I swim to raise awarness about the threat of Illegal Shell Trade to sea turtles. Please help me raise awareness about my cause by supporting me!
