Hi friends! My name is Marcia! I’m a 50 lb juvenile green turtle and I was found floating off Vaca Key in March where I was luckily rescued by some new friends and taken to The Turtle Hospital to get better! The amazing doctors at The Turtle Hospital treated me for something called “positive buoyancy disorder” because I was having trouble diving on my own. I was set up with broad spectrum antibiotics, fluids, vitamins and a healthy diet of greens and mixed seafood and now I’m good as new! Now that I’m a super strong swimmer and diver, I can’t wait to show off my skills in the Tour de Turtles race! I’m racing to spread the word about Boat Strikes because so many of my turtle friends at The Turtle Hospital were there because they been injured by boats! Make sure to cheer for me and spread the word about my cause!
I was named by my Sponsor,
The Turtle Hospital. Check out my marathon migration map, where you can follow along as I swim to raise awareness about the threat of Boat Strikes to sea turtles. Please help me raise awareness about my cause by supporting me!
