I’ve been following the Sea Turtle Conservancy’s Tour de Turtles, eagerly hoping to see how my adopted turtle, Shelley, was doing against the fierce competition! Unfortunately, it seems that Shelley is no longer transmitting. I’m not sure what’s up, but I’m guessing her tag fell off or ran out of batteries (I’ve sent an email to Sea Turtle Conservancy to find out the details).
I’m going to believe that Shelley’s swimming somewhere in the Atlantic, tag-free! And I’ll also “adopt” another sea turtle soon. If you’re interested in adopting and tracking your own sea turtle, here’s the link! (photo: Sea Turtle Conservancy – Shelley)
