ESK Students Sponsor Caretta Caretta Turtle and name her “ESK Bubbles”

The children of ESK have had their first glimpse of their turtle as she made her way back to sea after laying her first clutch of eggs, with her new electronic tag attached.

Last week voting took place to choose the name of our Turtle. Bubbles was the most popular name by far so she is now known as  ESK Bubbles.

So far the school council have raised just under 2500 TL, so we need to raise a further 3000 TL to cover the cost of the electronic tag. The children understand that by sponsoring the Turtle tagging project they are not just adopting a turtle but they are also contributing to one of the most famous Turtle projects in the world.

As families you can now log into the following web address and follow the activities of ESK Bubbles who is currently remaining just of Alagadi beach in preparation for laying her second clutch of eggs. You can log in at any time using phones, ipads, android tablets, computers laptops etc. and follow her (and other turtles’) progress in real time.
