Saving Sea Turtles is a Marathon, Not a Sprint

Turtle Bio Page

Ciao! I’m Tortellini! My interests include swimming marathons, carb-loading, and Italian culture. I’ve been training hard for my next marathon so I’m spending a lot of time in the water, as most sea turtles do. I’ve traveled all around the world and can’t believe how fast some of you humans drive your boats around these parts! I had to dodge so many speeding vessels, especially during the summer and holidays. That’s why I plan to educate as many people as I can during the Tour de Turtles about safe boating practices and the dangers of boat strikes. I used my connections to hook up with the folks at Fahlo and they’re going to help us put a stop to this madness and raise awareness about the issue. I hope to see everyone on the beach cheering me on, just make sure you wait 30 minutes after you eat your gelato before swimming! Arrivederci!

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 Boat Strikes to sea turtles. Please help me raise awareness about my cause by supporting me!
