+ Turtle Watch grants scholarships
The Longboat Key Turtle Watch granted two scholarships to sisters Paisley and Phyona Smelt, students at Anna Maria Elementary School, to attend Mote Marine Laboratory’s Summer Children’s Camp.
The Turtle Watch has been sending two Anna Maria students to camp each summer. The weeklong camps allow young children to explore marine life through activities, games and crafts. Campers enjoy snorkeling, going on a boat trip around Sarasota Bay and visiting Mote Aquarium.
