Our plastic challenge to you!

We have a CHALLENGE for you today on our Fifth Day of Turtles! We challenge each of you to pick up some plastic or trash that’s about to make its way into a waterbody (a ditch, a stream, a river, the ocean, anywhere really), take a picture of what you picked up, post it on our Facebook page in the comments for Day FIVE and on 13 December, we’ll pick THREE winning photos and send each of you a project t-shirt as our thanks for helping with the plastic debris problem we all hear so much about.

And don’t be afraid to let people see you do it – they will be inspired to do the same!

Thank you so much!

Volunteers and students from Duke Marine Lab pick up plastic last summer.

The St. Croix Leatherback Project is supported by the Sea Turtle Census Initiative, which is sponsored by  The Ocean Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, based in Washington, D.C., working globally to protect our oceans.

All photos on this website were taken under appropriate Endangered Species Permits during the course of approved research. No photos may be reproduced, or copied and used without permission. Thank you.
