Tag a Turtle Project, Newquay, England

The Tag a Turtle project aims to raise enough funds to satellite tag the next turtle that finds itself lost and in need of rehabilitation at the Blue Reef Aquariam in Newquay.  Many of the recently stranded turtles have been loggerheads.
The project needs to raise £3,000.  Congratulations to Nicola and Nicole on this great initiative.
You can read more about in on their website Tag a Turtle
