Join Atlantis as we cheer on our own Calypso Blue IV in the 2015 Tour De Turtles!
Atlantis has partnered with the Sea Turtle Conservancy to bring awareness to the
issues sea turtles face by sponsoring a leatherback turtle named Calypso Blue IV
in the 2015 Tour De Turtles. Tour De Turtles follows the migration of sea turtles,
representing different species, from their nesting beaches to their foraging grounds.
Thirteen turtles will race, each to raise awareness for a different cause. Calypso Blue IV is
swimming to promote the reduction of entanglement in commercial fisherman’s nets.
Satellite transmitters are attached to each turtle to track the distance travelled and the
turtle that travels the furthest is the winner. Race along with Calypso Blue and
