What: Waterline Marina Resort & Beach Club announced today a “turtley” awesome contest on their Facebook page, “Where in the World is Eliza Ann?” This past June, in partnership with Anna Maria Island Turtle Watch & Shorebird Monitoring (AMITW), Waterline Marina Resort & Beach Club tagged and released a nesting female loggerhead sea turtle – Eliza Ann – in the 10th Annual Tour de Turtles powered by the Sea Turtle Conservancy. Since then, the mother-to-be has had quite the journey and is currently a “People’s Choice” front runner in the Tour de Turtles. You can track her journey here.
Beginning today, Waterline is asking contestants where they think Eliza Ann will be on October 1st for a chance to win a local destination package to the highly anticipated resort opening on Anna Maria Island this fall.
When: Starting Monday, September 18th contestants will be able to enter by visiting Waterline’s Facebook page and commenting on the contest post with their projected coordinates. They will have until midnight on Monday, September 25th to enter and the winner will be announced on Monday, October 2nd.
