Saving Sea Turtles is a Marathon, Not a Sprint

Turtle Bio Page

What’s up dudes and dudettes?! The name’s Sandy! I was named by my sponsors at Ocean’s Lending who are big lovers of Florida’s sandy beaches. That’s why I’m swimming in this year’s Tour de Turtles to raise awareness about the threat of beach erosion. The past few decades I’ve noticed my favorite beaches are eroding. Totally not tubular! This is especially bad news for me and my sea turtle friends because the only place we can lay our eggs is on sandy beaches. Because sea level rise is contributing to beach erosion, sea turtles need help from you humans so try to limit emissions where you can, elect leaders who will address climate change, plant native dune vegetation on beaches, and whatever you do, don’t walk on my precious dunes!

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