Turtles!

Roger is always finding cool websites, and this one is no exception! The Great Turtle Race is a REAL race with REAL turtles! The leatherback turtles have used the beaches of Costa Rica to lay their eggs for years. Unfortunately, the leatherbacks are near extinction from people stealing the eggs from the nests. (more info here) With the support from several large company sponsors, the turtles have been tagged and their journey to the Galapogos Islands is being tracked. It's a lot of fun to check out the progress of each turtle. I have chosen Purple Lightening just because, well, I like purple! But I truly support ALL the turtles. Check out race!
