Each turtle is swimming for a cause to raise awareness about a specific threat to sea turtles. You can help by supporting a turtle and raise awareness about their cause. There are two ways you can get involved and support a sea turtle marathoner:
- Adopt a Turtle: With a donation of $30 ($40 outside the U.S.) you can Adopt-A-Turtle through Sea Turtle Conservancy (STC) to show your support for a sea turtle and its cause. Included in the Adopt-A-Turtle kit is a personalized adoption certificate, a colorful logo decal, a colorful magnet, and STC’s Sea Turtle Conservation Guide, all presented in a beautiful full-color sea turtle folder. You will also become a member of STC and receive a free one-year subscription to the Velador, STC’s award winning conservation newsletter. Your tax-deductible donation will help STC ensure sea turtles are swimming free in the oceans for future generations!
- Tweet your support for your Tour de Turtles competitor. Make sure to use the Twitter link on your favorite turtle's pages to make your support count!
Each time a turtle is supported by an Adopt-A-Turtle or Tweeted about, it will be recorded on the "People's Turtle Choice" graph below. The "winner" will be announced at the end of the race!
