Join the Sea Turtle Conservancy as they attach satellite transmitters to two adult loggerhead turtles and release them back to the sea as part of their Tour de Turtles migration marathon!
They recommend arriving around 7:30 am. Turtles will be released around 8:30 am. There will also be fun, family-friendly activities and free giveaways. Event t-shirts are available for $20. After the turtles are released, you can track them online at www.tourdeturtles.org.
It is the mission of the Sea Turtle Conservancy to ensure the survival of sea turtles within the Wider Caribbean basin and Atlantic through research, education, training, advocacy and the protection of the natural habitats upon which they depend. The Sea Turtle Conservancy has chosen sea turtles as the focus of its conservation efforts in part because these ancient creatures are among the most important indicators of the health of the world's marine and coastal ecosystems. STC believes that whether sea turtles ultimately vanish from the planet or whether they remain a wild and thriving part of the natural world, will speak volumes about both the general health of the planet and the ability of humans to sustainably coexist with the diversity of life on Earth.
