Sarah, a diver at the New England Aquarium who saw my trash video, invited me to feed Myrtle, the Green Sea turtle, because of everything I’ve been doing to try to help animals. I got to go on the platform above the Giant Ocean Tank with Sarah. I felt very lucky. Myrtle is 80 years old! She never stops eating, so they only give her a certain amount of food so she doesn’t go overboard. I fed her lettuce. She can eat a lot of lettuce at one time. Sometimes the fish will steal her food but they spit it back out! I loved feeding Myrtle the Turtle. I’m happy that I had such a wonderful opportunity and I enjoyed talking to Sarah and getting to meet some of the other divers. Kara, my Ocean Detectives teacher was there too. It was a great day!
