Join us for the Space Coast’s premier race, the Turtle Krawl! In 2011, nearly 1000 people signed up for the race, and the Sea Turtle Preservation Society (STPS) was able to raise over $20,000. Their Board unanimously agreed to earmark all Turtle Krawl funds for a “special project” to be determined, with the number one goal being building a sea turtle rehabilitation facility, or at the very least setting up a triage-type location, here in Brevard County. At this time, the closest rehab facility is a 90 minute drive from Brevard County beaches. Come out and join the fun–and support the STPS.
