Many have been sent and taken to counties in the Caribbean. In addition a sister school program for students to share culture, language, and friendship has been established between schools in the states and schools in countries that also have nesting sea turtles. Schools in Costa Rica, Trinidad, and the Bahamas are already matched up with Florida schools. This summer a book on a land tortoises is being edited and illustrated.
