Saving Sea Turtles is a Marathon, Not a Sprint

Turtle Bio Page

Harriet is named after a psychic from New Orleans, and she heard word in the spirit realm is that there’s a race going on – something called Tour de Turtles. She is up for the adventure but knows to proceed with caution as she takes to the seas – you see, bright lights can seriously mess with a psychic’s vision and a sea turtle’s too as they rely on their vision to navigate the world. But with all the sea turtle-friendly lighting here at Disney’s Vero Beach Resort and the folks at the Disney Conservation Fund by her side, the ghostly glow of the moon over the sea is as clear as can be for Harriet’s journey. And with the moon guiding her way, she is ready to swim her way to victory!

I was named by my Sponsor, Disney Conservation Fund. Check out my marathon migration map, where you can follow along as I swim to raise awareness about the threat of Light Pollution to sea turtles. Please help me raise awareness about my cause by supporting me!
