US (FL): 4th graders grow lettuce for sea turtles

Budding young scientists at a Saint Paul痴 Elementary School have been growing hydroponic lettuce for Stubby and Titus, two sea turtles at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.

的知 so happy they were eating up the lettuce we worked so hard on, said Alec Alarakhia, one of the students.



It took the students six weeks to grow the lettuce, and on Wednesday, they arrived at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium to bring home the harvest.

典he amount of lettuce this group brought for us here was enough not only to feed a couple of the turtles they were able to witness eat the food, but it痴 able to feed all of our green sea turtles throughout the entire day and possibly even into tomorrow, said Devon Francke, who supervises sea turtle rehabilitation at the aquarium.
