Como estas, cuties? Me llamo Shelly. Phew, it’s a hot one today…hope my make-up looks good! My sweet friends at Tarte Cosmetics did me up for this year’s big race. I just love their products! They are all-natural and made without harmful chemicals and preservatives to keep me healthy and ready to shine. It’s just one way I take care of my big beautiful body! I’ve held a steady diet of fatty jellyfish this past year to fuel my trip from my home country of Panama to the coast of Mexico. Mmm, delicioso – but did you know jellies and other marine life can become contaminated by chemicals from oil spills and runoff? When these nasty toxins enter the ocean, they never leave! They accumulate in my food and even on the beach, and make my friends and I very sick! That’s why Tarte is partnering with us this year to raise awareness about the threat of oil spills and marine pollution. I want all of my ocean friends to stay organic and beautiful, like me! Help us keep the ocean clean by cheering me on. Ciao!

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