The Nature et Découvertes Foundation organize a huge “challenge of strides” to help our Foundation and the Sea turtle Clinic we manage. To save the sea turtles of French Polynesia, participants just had to sleep on their pair of sneakers and rise to the 3 challenges proposed before the last one challenge celebrated on June 5. Each kilometer performed on June 5th will be converted into euro to save them. In total, over 37 257 km were crossed by 15 339 participants!! An undeniable success that allowed the Foundation to donate 30 000 euros to Te mana o te moana.
With this funding, we will improve the functioning of the Sea Turtle Clinic (which has already welcomed and treated more than 400 turtles) and to develop teaching materials, create a discovery of marine turtles outdoor runs…. We thank the Nature et Découvertes Foundation for this beautiful project, the Air Tahiti Nui company who offered an airline ticket for the 2 winners and the InterContinental Moorea Resort and Spa that also offered two nights the hotel of Moorea.
