The Dry Tortugas Bracelet
This is a very beautiful turtle bracelet. This heavy weight bracelet measures just about 8 inches long when the toggle clasp in clasped. Each turtle is 15mm wide by 18mm long.
This bracelet is named for the Dry Tortugas National Park, located roughly 70 miles off the coast of Key West. We spend a lot of time in Key West and I was even born and partially raised there. Around 10 years ago we rescued a sea turtle who had a version of turtle pneumonia. There is a turtle hospital up the Keys who came and picked him up in a little turtle ambulance and he was rehabbed and released about 8 months later on July 4th. $5 from the purchase of this bracelet will be donated to that turtle hospital which continues to rescue, rehabilitate and release turtles around the Keys and houses turtles who cannot be released back into the wild.
