Saving Sea Turtles is a Marathon, Not a Sprint

Turtle Bio Page

Que tal amigos? Soy Kiwi! After I came ashore and laid almost 100 eggs, I was ready to take off on the first leg of the Tour de Turtles marathon. The only thing that can get in my way now is pesky plastic debris, yuck! Items like plastic water bottles, bags, straws and balloons can easily make their way into the ocean, where they break down into small pieces. Accidentally eating this plastic has caused the deaths of over 100 million of my marine animal friends. I certainly can’t keep all these bad items from entering the ocean by myself so it’s a good thing I have my sponsors at Fahlo helping me out! Take reusable grocery bags to the store, skip the straw, never release balloons, and always pick up litter. I can’t wait to see all my fans at the finish line!

I was named by my Sponsor, fahlo. 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!
