Lee the green sea turtle needs your help! One day, Lee was out swimming with her friends when she was taken away from the ocean. With the help of some kind children, will Lee make it back to her ocean home? Learn what you can do to help save sea turtles like Lee. There is always a way to help life in the sea! 


Lee the Sea Turtle Swims Free teaches young readers about the importance of protecting our oceans. The text is written in both English and Mandarin to inspire and empower children in both the United States and China to care for the environment.

By purchasing Lee the Sea Turtle Swims Free, you are supporting a project that spreads awareness about the importance of sea turtle conservation in China, where sea turtles are poached for their meat and shells. The net proceeds of your order will be donated to Loggerhead Marinelife Center, a nonprofit sea turtle research and rehabilitation center in Juno Beach, Florida. With your donation, additional copies of Lee the Sea Turtle Swims Free will be sent to Hainan, China, and serve as educational tools in primary and middle schools. Thank you for supporting our project!

About the author
Emily Horgen is a conservation intern at Loggerhead Marinelife Center (LMC) in Juno Beach, Florida. She is 17-years-old and attends the Benjamin School in Palm Beach Gardens. After travelling to Hainan, China, in the summer of 2018, where she established a partnership with marinelife professor Dr. Lin of Hainan Normal University, Emily was inspired to help save sea turtles in the South China Sea that are poached for their meat and shells. Emily has been studying Mandarin for eight years and is heavily involved in the arts at her high school. She combined her interests to create and illustrate an educational children's book, written in both English and Mandarin. She hopes that Lee the Sea Turtle Swims Free will inspire children in both China and the United States to help protect endangered sea turtles. Emily wants to thank her parents for their support, her mentor Katie O'Hara at LMC for working with her on this project, her friend Eudora Song for her assistance in translation, and her partner Dr. Lin for collaborating with her on this multicultural project
