ACES students can work together to fundraise, and for just $25-$100, adopt a sea turtle that is tracked by satellite and follow its movements on the ACES website! Adopting classes can receive plenty of information about their animal, including information sheets, adoption certificates, and photographs. uses the money raised from the adoption program to support turtle research and conservation.

"This is a wonderful opportunity for ACES students," says ACES Program Manager Meghan Marrero. "Students are always asking about ways to help - with just a small fundraising activity like a bake sale, they can make a difference!"
