Tour de Turtles Leader Board

Tour de Turtles (TdT) is a fun, educational journey through the science, research and geography of sea turtle migration using satellite telemetry. Created by Sea Turtle Conservancy, with help from sponsors and partners, this event follows the marathon migration of nine sea turtles, representing five different species, from their nesting beaches to their foraging grounds.

Follow along to find out how long it takes each sea turtle to complete a marathon migration of 2,620 km (1,628 miles). Each turtle will be swimming for a cause to raise awareness about a specific threat to sea turtles. You can get involved by supporting a turtle to help raise awareness about their cause. While we may not know which turtle will swim the distance first, one thing is certain: saving sea turtles is a marathon, not a sprint!
