The AG Society Turtle Race

By AG Society | June 19, 2009

AG Society supports the turtles on their journey home to Queensland’s Raine Island.

At the end of 2007 Australian Geographic raised over $19,000 to support the Sea Turtle Foundation. Each year the Green Sea Turtles of Raine Island return to their nesting grounds.

In November 2008 four of these endangered creatures were fitted with radio trackers to monitor their migration patterns. Students from primary schools around Townsville have named the turtles.

You can watch online as Squirtle, BG Ranger, Jong Jong and Kelso race back to their summer feeding ground. To watch their progress online go to the Sea Turtle Foundation website and follow the links.
