Saving Sea Turtles is a Marathon, Not a Sprint

Turtle Bio Page

Que tal amigos? Me llamo Pedro Pa-SCALÈ! My generous friends at Graft Cider gave me my name and they’re helping support me on my long journey from Panama to my foraging grounds! Oh, the places I will go… I may travel far and wide, but my favorite place will always be the beautiful tropical shores of Bocas del Toro. There is so much amazing native wildlife in Panama like sloths, monkeys, parrots, and more. But there are also animals near the beach that shouldn’t be there, such as dogs, raccoons and wild boars. They come on the beach and dig up my nests and eat my eggs! You can make sure my nests stay safe next time you’re at the beach by keeping all pets on a leash, picking up trash so it doesn’t attract raccoons, and supporting spay and neuter programs to keep stray dog populations in check. Graft Cider has also promised to help me raise awareness about invasive species predation, so we can put an end to this problem for good! Wish me luck, off I go!

I was named by my Sponsor, Graft Cider. Check out my marathon migration map, where you can follow along as I swim to raise awareness about the threat of Invasive Species Predation to sea turtles. Please help me raise awareness about my cause by supporting me!
