Corona is in the lead!

Corona del Mar is the sea turtle I picked out as part of my Christmas present (read about it here). She is part of the Tour de Turtles! She is currently in first place, having traveled 2,178 km so far.

Her cause is to fight poachers who harvest eggs for human consumption. Humans are one of the biggest threats to sea turtles (probably true of most endangered species) and sea turtle eggs are considered quite the delicacy in some parts of the world.

Learn more about Corona and the others that are part of the 2010 Tour de Turtles. Help raise awareness for their causes and save the turtles!
