Background

The tracking of this turtle was funded at least in part by an anonymous donor. In November 2011 at the annual Society for Protection of Turtles fund raising event "Celebrity Weakest Link", which is a spoof on Anne Robinson's famous game show, this donor offered to front £1000 if Local North Cyprus resident hair dresser Neil Anthony would appear as a contestant in drag as "Dolly". Dolly put on a great show and everyone who attended had a fantastic time. Excluding the £1000 donation for Dolly, a further 4024 Turkish Lira was raised for the Society for Protection of Turtles in North Cyprus. A fantastic contribution. Particular thanks to Patricia Dann for organising the event, to Marion Stuart for her magical portrayal of Ann Robinson to all of the contestants and to Dolly herself.
