The Great Sea Turtle Race

Jul 25, 2016

Was it pre-race jitters? Dash was feverishly thumping her flippers at the wooden sides of her beach corral. An attentive volunteer placed a white towel atop the sea turtle's head to calm her down. Meanwhile, the countdown was on for the 2015 Tour de Turtle.

Sporting a 27- inch long curved shell, Dash was going loggerhead-to-loggerhead with Myrtle (with a 43-inch shell). Close to a 2,000 spectators turned up last July at the Barrier Island Center located in the heart of the Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge in southern Melbourne Beach to cheer on the two competitors.
