Huffy, the Turtle That Won't Give Up
Huffy is a sea turtle who was hit by a boat, had several operations, went through Hurricane Fran, and still hasn't given up on living. This is an inspiring story from Jean Beasley of the Topsail Turtle Project, Topsail Island, North Carolina.
The Remarkable Journey of Adelita
Adelita was a female loggerhead turtle who swam from the Baja California coast all the way to Japan. Because she carried a satellite transmitter, thousands of schoolkids followed her year-long journey. Learn why this migration is significant--and why it is so dangerous.
Project Paola
Paola is a loggerhead turtle who was injured and caught in an Italian fisherman's nets. A restaurant owner's daughter saw Paola and saved her. Now Paola has a satellite tag and is being tracked as she swims around the Meditteranean, but her adventures don't stop there.
