A Gift for the Yachtsman Who Has Everything: Adopt a Sea Turtle and Track Its Movements via the Web

Here’s a novel idea for gifting the precocious child or the yachtsman who has everything.

SEATURTLE.ORG has tax-deductible donation packages that let you adopt a satellite-tagged sea turtle, or other animal, whose movements you can track through their website.

Seaturtle.org and partner organizations have fitted sea turtles, whale sharks, sea lions, even a peregrine falcon with high-tech data transmitters that relay information about their location via satellite. The information helps researchers better understand animal behavior and improve laws and regulations that protect endangered species.

Visit the SEATURTLE.ORG adoption page to view the names, nationalities and descriptions of many adorable animals like Jah, an Argentinean loggerhead or Lucy Jack, a flatback from northern Australia, or Navajo, a green turtle from New England. Seaturtle.org also has a shop with an assortment of items including apparel embroidered with the seaturtle.org logo, cute stuffed animals, even sea turtle tattoos. If you wish to adopt an animal as a holiday gift international orders must be placed by December 11 and US orders by December 17 for a timely delivery.
