The Great Turtle Race

At www.greatturtlerace.com you have the opportunity to follow eleven GPS-tagged leatherback turtles as they make their way from Costa Rica back to the Galapagos Islands. The Great Turtle Race is designed to spread awareness of the plight of the leatherback turtle, a creature that has survived a 100 million years on the Earth but may not survive much longer.

Seven days until The Great Turtle Race begins, so visit www.greatturtlerace.com now. There are options to donate to help the leatherbacks and lesson plans for teachers.
