Surfs up, dudes! I’m Tamarind! Even though I was born in Florida, I’m quite the world traveler and my name was actually inspired by the delicious tropical fruit that grows in the Bahamas. It was given to me by my amazing sponsors at Atlantis Paradise Island. They’ve been supporting my other leatherback friends for 10 years! I was so excited when I heard it was finally my turn to represent Team Atlantis in this year’s Tour de Turtles race.
I was named by my Sponsor,
Atlantis Paradise Island. Check out my marathon migration map, where you can follow along as I swim to raise awareness about the threat of Plastic Debris to sea turtles. Please help me raise awareness about my cause by supporting me!
