For the 11th year, Disney’s Vero Beach Resort will be hosting their annual Tour de Turtles event on July 28. The event pairs up Disney’s Animal, Science & Environment Team with the Sea Turtle Conservancy to celebrate the migration of two loggerhead turtles from nesting on the beach to their foraging grounds.
Disney’s Vero Beach Resort happens to be one of the most active sea turtle nesting areas in Florida. Disney’s Animal, Science & Environment Team continually monitors the area around the Resort for any sea turtle nesting activity as part of Disney’s commitment to sea turtle conservation.
In an effort to raise awareness for sea turtle conservation, Disney’s Vero Beach Resort hosts the Tour de Turtles. This year’s Tour de Turtles will feature a Toy Story Land theme. Just as guests at Disney’s Hollywood Studios are invited to “play big” in Andy’s Backyard, conservation efforts at Disney’s Vero Beach Resort encourage guests to care for those animals who live in their own backyards.
Here’s how you can help these efforts right now. CLICK HERE to vote and name the two turtles that will be released with your favorite Toy Story-inspired name. The winning names will be announced in the next few weeks as well as additional information on the Tour de Turtles and a live stream of the event.
