If we don’t pass along information and knowledge we put the turtles at risk.
Edisto Beach, SC (PRWEB) December 27, 2011
Saving loggerhead turtles just got easier. Over the next three weeks EdistoBeach.com is offering an online fundraiser for Learning Through Loggerheads. Beginning Tuesday, Nov. 29 Edisto Beach tourists, locals, and anyone else who appreciates sea turtles and the organizations that protect them can go online and show their support by making a donation. 100% of proceeds will go directly to Learning Through Loggerheads.
Learning Through Loggerheads is a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection of the threatened loggerhead sea turtle. The group focuses specifically on the turtles and nests on the beaches of Edisto Island, but with its educational program its impact is boundless.
Meg Hoyle and Susan Ford, the spearheads behind Learning Through Loggerheads, offer educational programs about the turtles for area school children and adults, year-round. Additionally, local middle and high school students work as interns during the summer months where they actively participate in all aspects of the loggerheads’ protection in Edisto’s Botany Bay Wildlife Management Area. This is the second-largest nesting aggregation on the South Carolina coast.
This educational program provides students from all walks of life with an opportunity that instills a lifetime love of learning and appreciation for the environment and conservation and ensures that future generations will continue to protect the sea turtles.
“If we don’t pass along information and knowledge we put the turtles at risk,” Hoyle said.
This fundraiser is an excellent way to show your year-round support of Learning Through Loggerheads, education in the Lowcountry, and the Edisto Beach community. In addition, EdistoBeach.com will donate the following to anyone who makes a contribution:
$5 or more and they get a free EB sticker mailed to them free of charge.
$25 or more and they get a free EB sticker AND a free shirt.
$50 or more and they get 3 EB stickers and 3 shirts in any size.
Stickers and shirts are donated at no cost to LTL and are not deducted from the donation. Visit http://www.edistobeach.com/blog/support-learning-through-loggerheads to donate and participate in this fundraiser.
