Hello Dears, I am swimming to raise awareness about the threat of beach erosion. The past few decades I’ve noticed my favorite beaches are eroding. This is bad news for me and other sea turtles, because the only place we can lay our eggs is on sandy beaches, so we all need to work together to make sure I can keep nesting on Florida’s beaches well into the future. Sea level rise is also contributing to beach erosion. So there are few ways you can help, such as limiting emissions where you can, biking to work or carpooling ( like back in my day ), and electing leaders who will address climate change. You can also plant native dune vegetation on beaches, promote coastal construction set-back policies and not build structures on the beach. And the easiest way to help, don’t walk on the dunes let the vegetation grow and collect more and more sand.

I was named by my Sponsor, Community Foundation for Brevard. Check out my marathon migration map, where you can follow along as I swim to raise awarness about the threat of Beach Erosion to sea turtles. Please help me raise awareness about my cause by supporting me!
