This week we were contacted by two dedicated young turtle lovers in Colorado in the United States. Kenny and Cy decided that they wanted to help the world’s turtles and chose to do this by raising some funds for Sea Turtle Foundation.
With the help of family and friends the boys braved the unusual spring snow to have a lemonade and hot chocolate stand. Through their brilliant efforts, they raised an amazing USD95 (that’s around $125 in Australia). We were very touched and inspired by the efforts of these two school boys who live in the centre of the US, far from the sea.
We will make sure that their efforts don’t go to waste and the funds will be put towards our school and community education efforts. This helps us to continue to spread the message about ways in which everyone can help reduce threats to our beautiful sea turtles. As a small not-for-profit organisation, Sea Turtle Foundation rely on the generous efforts of people all around the world to ensure we can continue to work in our three key areas of Research, Education and Action to protect turtle populations at all stages of their life cycle.
