The Great Canadian Turtle Race is just around the corner. The turtles are tagged and ready to race! This October, our leatherbacks will start swimming towards their southern wintering grounds at up to 9.3 kilometres per hour. Oh yes! They’re pretty fast!

However, we have some business to attend to before the race can begin. Our turtles need racing names!  Please read the turtles’ bios below and reply to us with your racing name suggestions! So what’ll it be? Beverly the Beast? Sharon the Speed Demon? Get your creative caps on, because you never know! Your name might just be chosen for one of our leatherbacks!
