What an amazing response to our Leatherback Contest! We had 168 entries with over 500 guesses! Out of those entries, FIVE people chose the correct date (21 February) and the correct beach (North Beach). To choose prizes, we drew random entries of the winners!
Prizes are as follows (we’ll follow up with each of you)
Gold: Leatherback Adoption – Lisa Rau
Silver: Hawksbill Adoption – Vicki Marsh
Bronze: Green Turtle Adoption – Leah Atwell
Monel: Project t-shirt and sticker – Sharon Grimes
Inconel: Project t-shirt and sticker – Amy Semple
Thank you all for playing along!
**If you are a sea turtle biologist, you will know that Monel and Inconel are types of alloy metals used in turtle tags!
