Vote For Turtle Talks!

The Turtle Talks team is a sea turtle conservation program. The team spreads the message that youth are the generation that will preserve sea turtles and that what is good for sea turtles, is good for all sea life, and ultimately human life. Since 2001, the team has spoken to school and community groups about sea turtles, but they need your help now more than ever.

Zander Srodes, the team leader has authored a childrens activity book. The book is given away free at all presentations. It has been taken by team members to 5 countries in the Caribbean and mailed to children all over the world. The book is available in 4 languages. Over 100,000 copies have been printed and given away. What a great way to spread the sea turtle message!

Go to http://www.genv.net/en-us/bestbuy and vote for Turtle Talks. Sponsored by the Best Buy @ 15 Challenge and Ashoka's Youth Venture, the winning team will receive a $10,000 grant from the Best Buy Children’s Foundation. The grant would provide the Turtle Talks team with enough money to continue giving their activity book away for free to children everywhere.

You must act fast because voting ends on January 9, 2009. The best part is that you can vote every day. Please spread the message and tell all your friends to vote for Turtle Talks. And if you need more reasons to vote for Turtle Talks, just check out the video of Zander Srodes below and prepare to be inspired.
