April 18-24 is National Volunteer Week. The theme is “Celebrating People in Action.” What will you do during this week? Volunteers are needed for the “Love A Sea Turtle” 5k & Nature Walk on April 25. Email email@example.com to help.
Proceeds from the Love A Sea Turtle 5k & Nature Walk will benefit the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Hospital. We accept the challenge and will donate monies raised as the “Love A Sea Turtle Family”. 350 families are needed to raise $1,000 each to reach their goal for the new turtle hospital. http://www.seaturtlehospital.org/
Just recently, 10 sea turtles were released – 5 green turtles from The Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Hospital, Topsail Island, and 5 loggerhead turtles from the North Carolina Aquarium, Pine Knoll Shores. The U.S. Coast Guard and Sea Turtle Hospital personnel assisted the rehabilitated turtles back into the ocean, about 40 miles southeast of Beaufort Inlet. Go turtles!

I bake and sell turtle-shaped sugar cookies to raise money for the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Hospital in Topsail Island, N.C. You can help the oceans, too, by supporting Oceana’s “Adopt A Sea Creature”. Go to www.oceana.org/adopt to select your favorite sea creature. I will soon announce my plans for a Save The Ocean Bake Sale. We’ll all bake and sell cookies on the same day to raise money for ocean conservation.
During my recent trip to Washington, D.C., I visited Oceana, the Global Headquarters Office for ocean conservation. I talked to Oceana staff and toured the building. It was AMAZING!
