Turtles Race to a Win !
by Lisa of FairyCardMaker
The Canadian Wildlife Federation (CWF) submitted their Turtle Migration project to the Shell FuellingChange™ challenge. Voters voted on the projects categorized by funding prize levels. I am happy to report that The Amazing Turtle Migration won first place in the $100,000 category!!
CWF will be helping the leatherback turtle, a species at risk, through the funding of research projects and educational programs. Supporters will even get to follow the turtles’ migration next spring and cheer on their favourite turtle as it makes its way to its nesting areas down south.

Interesting fact: Leatherback seaturtles pre-date the dinosaurs! To learn more about the leatherback turtle, please read about it on CWF’s site: Hinterland Who’s Who Leatherback Turtle.
