EVENT DATE Aug 07, 2017
Hi all! So, anyone who has ever spoken to me has probably learned about my love for turtles and my passion for all animals in general! Most people don't know this, but almost every species of sea turtle is classified as endangered. They have fallen prey to poaching for eggs, meat, and shells. They are also accidentally caught in fishing nets and are suffering from habitat destruction/over explotation. I have recently been accepted to go on a three week trip to Costa Rica to work with others to help tag and locate nesting females, build shelters for nests that may fall prey to predators, patrol beaches, and possibly help some newborns make their way to the big old blue! The money I raise will pay for my registration/training, a rount trip plane ticket, and living expenses while I am gone. I am beyond blessed to have this opportunity and any help I can get will be extremely appreciated!!
