Juvenile frenzy

6th May 2005 at 01:00
Newly hatched turtles make a mad dash for the sea and swim frantically for 24 hours to escape predators close to the shore. The Marine Conservation Society adopted the name for this - juvenile frenzy - for its annual fundraising events for endangered marine turtles. Schoolchildren can hold a sponsored Big Blue Day on any date to celebrate World Oceans Day on June 8 (dressing in blue to represent how our planet looks from space), or can raise sponsorship by matching the 11,000km distance covered by leatherback turtles migrating from Caribbean nesting beaches. The challenge can be completed through running, walking, swimming, cycling or an egg-and-spoon race. Participants receive a certificate and a Celebrate the Sea poetry book.
