Love the Loggerhead Read-a-Thon

BES is Reading to Help Sea Turtles
Love the Loggerhead Read-a-Thon
We will be starting on:
2017-02-14

We are reading to help our state reptile, the loggerhead sea turtle! The money we raise will be donated to The Sea Turtle Care Center at The South Carolina Aquarium. The Sea Turtle Care Center provides a place for sick and injured sea turtles to receive world-class care, treatment and medicines, with the ultimate goal of releasing these endangered animals back to the sea. It is a non-profit organization that relies on the support of the community to continue its efforts to sustain the loggerhead turtle population into the next century and beyond.
