Casey Sokolovic of Greenville knows you don't have to be an adult to make a difference. Casey has spent the last three years on a mission to help save sea creatures and their habitats. She's only twelve years old.
When she was nine years old, Casey started a sea turtle conservation campaign called L.A.S.T., which stands for "Love A Sea Turtle." Casey says she was inspired to make a difference after visiting the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center in Topsail Island. And make a difference she has. Casey has raised more than $3,000 for her campaign.
One of the ways Casey has raised money is through selling sea turtle-shaped sugar cookies. Others can support Casey by purchasing a limited edition Casey Kit for $200. For details, click here.
Casey was one of the finalists in the running for Oceana's 2009 "Ocean Heroes" award. Ocean is the largest international organization focused solely on ocean conservation.
