Hola, me llamo Frankie! My generous friends at Certina gave me my name and they’re helping me track my time along my long journey from Panama to my foraging grounds so I can make sure to stay on top! Oh, the places I will go… I may travel far and wide, but my favorite place will always be the beautiful tropical shores of home! There is so much fascinating wildlife in Panama, like sloths, caimans, monkeys and more! Most animals became my friends and would smile when they spotted me from the trees swimming along on my search for food. But when I was just a little hatchling, I met some creatures who don’t belong on the beach, like dogs and raccoons! They love to dig up nests looking for a tasty snack. That’s why I’m racing in the Tour de Turtles to raise awareness about invasive species predation! Certina is helping me out this year so we can put an end to this for good! Wish me luck, off I go!
I was named by my Sponsor,
