Endangered Ocean: Sea Turtles
Did you know that sea turtles have been living on planet Earth since the time of the dinosaurs? Around 110 million years. There are seven different species of sea turtles, six of which - green, hawksbill, Kemp's ridley, leatherback, loggerhead, and the olive ridley - can be found throughout the ocean in both warm and cool waters. The seventh species, the flatback, lives only in Australia. A healthy ocean depends on sea turtles. And sea turtles need our help. Get the story in 2:45 minutes.

Plastic and twine found in endangered sea turtle patient
In a tale that’s all too relevant this Plastic Free July, we recently took on a sick sea turtle patient at our Auckland Zoo Vet Hospital. Flown in by the Department of Conservation from Ninety Mile Beach after being found by a concerned member of the public, this turtle’s shell was in the worst condition our vets had ever seen – completely wrapped in a thick blanket of moss and covered in goose barnacles that would make it difficult for a turtle to swim and indicated it had been unwell for a long time. Once it arrived our vet team took X-rays, bloods and set the turtle up in an intensive care unit to start the process of nursing it back to health. But sadly, this endangered turtle spent only two days with our Vet Hospital team before it finally succumbed to its condition. A post-mortem revealed it was emaciated with two bits of plastic found inside its intestines as well as a long piece of knotted twine and extensive sun damage to its shell. This is an important message for all of us to clean up our oceans and choose to reuse. We’re doing out bit with our pledge to become single-use plastic water bottle free this July.

Endangered Ocean Life - Sea Turtles, Endangered Species
Endangered Ocean Life – Sea Turtles, Endangered Species What do Elk Horn Corals, Leatherback Sea Turtles, and Hawaiian Muck Seals all have in common? They are all protected under US Endangered Species Act. The Endangered Species Act of 1973 is one of the most effective conservation laws in the United States using science based management plan it has prevented the extinction of 99 percent of the species it protects. So how does it work? The US Congress put the US Fish and Wildlife service in charge of land and fresh water species and NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service in charge of marine species. These agencies can review the status of these species on their own or concerned citizens or groups can petition the agencies to list a species, after a review process a species can be listed as either Endangered or Threatened is necessary. Endangered means the species is in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant part of its range. Threatened means the species is likely to become endangered in the foreseeable future. If the species is listed as Endangered it is illegal to kill, harass, harm or capture it without special permission. Threatened species may be given many of the same protections, once the species is listed the agency in charge can designate the species Federally Protected Habitat, they will also develop a recovery plan to guide government and private efforts to help the species and get it out of danger. Today the Endangered Species Act protects over 2,140 listed species. The US Fish and Wildlife Service and NOAA continue to develop new technologies and management approaches to insure the Endangered Species Act stays effective and that endangered species populations can rebound and their habits can recover. A healthy ocean needs strong and sustainable populations of all marine species and the endangered species act has gone a long way to keeping it that way. Did you know that Sea Turtles have been living on Planet Earth since the time of the dinosaurs, around 110 million years. There are 7 different species of sea turtles, 6 of which Green, Hawksbill, Kemp’s Ridley, Leatherback, Loggerhead, and the Olive Ridley can be found throughout the ocean in both warm and cool waters, the 7th species the Flatback lives only in Australia. What’s amazing about sea turtles is after years of living and traveling the open ocean they return to the nesting grounds of where they were born to lay their eggs, in their voyage from nesting to feeding grounds some species will travel more than 1000 miles. But life is filled with danger for the sea turtle especially the hatchlings, on the beach birds, crabs, raccoons and even foxes will eat the hatchlings, and if the hatchlings make it to the ocean they are still tasty snacks for sea birds and fish. However the greatest threats for sea turtles are not from natural predators they are from humans, accidental catch in commercial fisheries or entanglement in marine debris are a serious threat to sea turtles as well as destruction of beach habitat , harvesting and poaching for meat and eggs and even boat strikes. But people aren’t just sitting by, nations are working together to protect and conserve sea turtles. In 1981 an international agreement made it illegal to trade all 7 species of sea turtle and their eggs or meat internationally, governments are figuring out ways to reduce bycatch such as requiring new designs in fishing gear and changes to fishing practices to make them less likely to capture turtles. Marine protected areas are being established in important sea turtle habitats. Conservation organizations are working with local communities to help change fishing practices as well as transition incomes away from turtle harvesting and toward turtle tourism . Other local efforts include working to reduce sources of marine debris, monitoring sea turtle nests and protecting them from poaching, and passing laws that prevent irresponsible development of known nesting beaches. A healthy ocean depends on sea turtles and sea turtles need our help.

Saving Endangered Sea Turtles
A hospital for rehab, research and release of one of Earth’s oldest living animals. More information on this story at . Additional content at http://www.insidescience.org/. (Inside Science TV) – Buckwheat, Mikey, Beaker, Barney, Alfalfa, Newman, Goober and Barnacle Bill are just a few of the sea turtles currently being treated at The Turtle Hospital in Marathon, Florida, a landmark animal hospital dedicated to ensuring that sea turtles – some of the oldest animal species on Earth – survive and thrive in the face of extinction. Armed with three ambulances and a dedicated team of biologists, zoologists, veterinarians and staff, The Turtle Hospital treats up to 200 turtles a year, and since 1986, it has released 1500 back into the wild. The need for facilities like the Turtle Hospital is huge. Sea turtles have been around a long, long time: By some estimates, their ancestors date back over 100 million years. Unfortunately, modern species of sea turtles haven’t had it easy. All six sea turtle species in US waters are listed under the Endangered Species Act, and worldwide, sea turtle populations have fallen since last generation. The dangers facing the turtles are numerous, according to Bette Zirkelbach, a biologist at the hospital. “The biggest threat is human impact,” she said, “and that varies from pollution, to trash in our water, fishing line entanglement, [and] boat strikes.” And tackling sea turtles’ complex healthcare needs requires a surprisingly sophisticated battery of tools. "We do blood transfusions, we give the turtles IV nutrition, we do physical therapy—things you might not think of with a sea turtle,” said Zirkelbach. Commonly, Turtle Hospital veterinarians have to address a disturbing trend: sea turtles’ eating of plastic debris, which has increased worldwide since 1985. Turtles mistake the bits of plastic for food – and in the case of “Barnacle Bill,” a 170-pound loggerhead sea turtle treated by the Turtle Hospital, the plastic builds up in their intestines, starving them unless it’s removed. When Barnacle Bill, was found floating, veterinarians used a bronchoscope to look inside his lungs and were able to clear plastic from his intestine. During the turtle's exam, the researchers also discovered that one of Barnacle Bill's lungs is smaller than the other one. Barnacle Bill will remain at the hospital until a permanent home at an aquarium or zoo can be found. Until then, veterinarians will add weights to Barnacle Bill's back to help him stay underwater. The Hospital also treats turtles suffering from fibropapillomatosis, a viral disease ravaging sea turtle populations worldwide. It’s thought that small leeches stuck to the turtles pass along a virus similar to the human herpes virus. If an infection takes hold, the virus causes tumors to grow all over the turtles’ bodies – large enough to affect their sight, swimming, and snacking. The problem hits close to home: “This is a virus that affects over 50 percent of the green sea turtle population,” said Zirkelbach, including ones in Florida. To treat cases of fibropapillomatosis in turtles like “Osborne,” a recently captured green sea turtle, veterinarians with the Turtle Hospital use tools like laser scalpels to remove fibropapilloma tumors. This is especially important for Osborne, who suffered from tumors around his eyes. Doctors are hopeful that the procedure will save Osborne’s eyesight. “We’re doing a lot of critical care," said Zirkelbach."A lot of state of the art medical care, we do blood transfusions, we give the turtles IV nutrition, we do physical therapy … things you might not think of with a sea turtle.” Despite the challenges, the successes of Turtle Hospital keep staff members like Zirkelbach motivated. “To take an animal that would not have otherwise survived, to help mitigate for the human impact that’s out there, fix a turtle up and put him back out into the wild—there’s nothing like it,” she said.

Facts about the Sea Turtle
Welcome to another episode of Natural World Facts! This fact file is all about Sea Turtles in the series Reptiles and Amphibians. - Brief Overview: Turtles are among the oldest groups of reptilians, having evolved millions of years ago. They can be found all over the world and inhabit almost every type of climate. There are seven different species of sea turtle, all of which vary in size and shape. The largest marine turtle is the leatherback. It can grow up to 7 feet (2 meters) long and weighs up to 2,000 lbs. (900 kilograms). The average lifespans of sea turtles can vary from 30 to 100 years, depending on the species. - Appearance: The appearance of marine turtles varies between species. The green sea turtle has a wide, smooth carapace which is brown or olive in colour, depending on its habitat. It is named after the greenish colour of its skin. The leatherback turtle has a rubbery, black shell while all other sea turtles have hard, bony shells. Ridges along its carapace help give it a more streamlined and hydrodynamic structure. Depending on the species, sea turtles colouring can range from olive-green, yellow, greenish-brown, reddish-brown, or black. All species of marine turtles have four flippers to help them swim, unlike tortoises or land turtles which have thick stubby legs for moving on land. - Diet: Sea turtles are omnivores, which means they eat both meat and vegetation, although their diet varies between species. Their diet consists of shrimp, seaweed, crabs, jellyfish, sponges, algae and mollusks. - Habitat: Sea turtles can be found in all the worlds oceans. The Kemp's Ridley turtle usually can be found in the Gulf of Mexico. The Flatback turtle inhabits the ocean around Australia, while the leatherback swims in every ocean on the planet. Green sea turtles and loggerhead turtles tend to stick to tropical and subtropical coastal waters. - Breeding: In the mating season, females and males migrate to the same beach where they were born, using the magnetic fields of the Earth as their guide. The migrations can be over 1,400 miles (2,253 kilometers) long. Sea turtles lay their eggs in clutches of 70 to 190 eggs. Females lay their clutches in holes they have dug in the beach. Once they have laid the eggs, they cover them in sand and return to the sea. Once the eggs hatch, the babies will dig their way out of their hole. Once free, the juveniles hurry to the safety of the sea to avoid being cooked by the sun or eaten by predators. - Status: The Kemp’s Ridley sea turtle is listed as critically endangered on the IUCN red list of threatened species, but the leatherback is listed as vulnerable. Some of the biggest threats to sea turtles include; oil spills, habitat loss (due to coastal development), accidental catching and poaching.

10 CRAZY Facts About Sea Turtles
Sea turtles are presumed to be one of the most majestic creatures on earth, as in legend, myth, and folklore. Here’s 10 fascinating facts about sea turtles you probably didn’t know. SUBSCRIBE for the latest videos: https://goo.gl/7xzjzR Don't forget to CHECK OUT our latest upload: https://goo.gl/LUB8Xw 10. They’re older than dirt It’s true. While the exact number has been debated, studies determine that turtles go as far back as the Mesozoic age, better known as the age of the dinosaurs. Fossils dating 260 million years suggest this turtle-like specie of reptile crawled the earth, with the first marine turtle dating back 220 million years. This evolutionary phenomenon dubs turtles one of the oldest creatures on earth, around the same age as the dinosaurs, who became extinct about 65 million years ago. 9. Plus size turtles need love too A species known as the leatherback sea turtle can grow as large as six feet, and weigh in at about 550 to 2000 pounds. Also, like their size sea turtles can grow really, really old in age. 8. Sea turtles love going on vacation As the name suggests, these tedious travelers are the only specie of turtle that lack a hard shell, with a soft layer resembling a leathery texture; seemingly, the lighter load makes for easier movement. Scientists track leatherbacks by way of satellite and have tracked their progress over hundreds and even thousands of miles across the deep blue sea. 7. They could outswim Michael Phelps The devious divers slow their heart rate by up to nine minutes—a crafty way of conserving oxygen. Of course, this feat is highly dependent on their level of aquatic activity at the time. If sleeping, a sea turtle can survive under water for four to seven hours; during times of hibernation in colder waters, they can hold their breath for up to ten. 6. Home is where the heart is Sea turtles have an innate connection to their natal beaches. So, when it comes time to lay their eggs, females return to the same birthing place as generations before. Turtle shells and human fingernails are one in the same. An interesting point that most don’t know, is that unlike land turtles, a sea turtle lacks the ability to hide their head inside their shells. Moreover, the shell is made up of two parts—the upper part being the carapace (with a flatter shape to help them swim), and the bottom known as the plastron. This entire structural skeleton is made up of keratin, the same fibrous substance found in fingernails, and the most abundant form of protein on earth. The whole shell is fused together by 60 bones, and if one were to rip the turtle from its homey habitat, they would rip the poor animal’s body apart. 4. Some like it hot If the egg incubates at colder temperatures such as 82 Fahrenheit, the gender is subsequently male. If temperatures are over 88—the hatchling will be female. Interestingly enough, any number between the aforementioned can be a mix of either. What’s more, maternal sea turtles don’t lay on their eggs, so any form of temperature to permeate the nest is from sand alone. On average only one in one thousand hatchlings survive. 3. Turtles have feelings, too Scientists link tears to the birthing process because the behavior was only observed when the females came ashore, yet studies have shown they cry in the sea as well. Sea turtles must run certain glands in order to maintain the correct balance of salt in their bodies, therefore, research has associated crying with egg laying when really the production of tears help flush salt and sand from their eyes. Still, if it looks like these sweet sea creatures are all lone shedding tears, it’s… 2. Probably because They’re endangered Several factors impede the survival of sea turtles, the most common being entanglement by fishing nets, habitat loss due to tourism, and the consumption of their eggs and flesh as food. Poaching and exploitation results in the slaughtering of their shells and skin; in addition, sea turtles suffer from climate change which has a severe effect on their nesting sites. Lastly, waste—such as in the form of plastic bags and bottles, are an attractive food source and quickly lead to suffocation and death. 1. They’ve got their own built-in GPS system Sea turtles possess an innate ability to determine their exact location on earth as well as the direction they need to be. This skill allows the ocean dwellers to locate favorable feeding grounds as well as their natal birthing grounds. Scientists have determined that sea turtles are very sensitive to the earth’s magnetic field, and much like a compass that relays direction, sea turtles can do just that. In addition, through said magnetic force, the pull allows them positional info, much like that of a GPS system.

The Sea Turtle An Endangered Species (Part 1)
a documentary about the endangered sea turtle
Views: 2910 Cody Raptor Owens
SEA TURTLES, THE CURRENT SITUATION The protection of the different species of sea turtles is becoming essential, if we want to guarantee their survival. The decline in turtle populations worldwide is due to various causes: different characteristics of their life cycle, vulnerability in some of their stages, bycatch, ship strikes, marine pollution, accidental ingestion of plastics, consumption of their meat and eggs, habitat destruction and building on their spawning grounds. The World Conservation Union (IUCN) (http://www.iucn.org/), has included sea turtles in their lists of threatened animals. In the category of critically endangered species we find: Lora (Lepidochelys kempi), Carey (Eretmochelys imbricata) and Leatherback (Dermochelys caretta). In the category of endangered species: Boba or Loggerhead Turtle (Caretta caretta), Tabasco turtle or White turtle (Chelonia mydas) and Olive Ridley or Olivacea (Lepidochelys olivacea).They are also listed in Appendix I of CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) (www.cites.org) containing all species of animals and plants threatened or endangered. These lists should give support to governments so they would cooperate with each other to prohibit the international trade of these animals. SITUATION IN CABO VERDE Cabo Verde is the third largest nesting area for loggerhead sea turtles worldwide, with between 9,000 and 22,000 nests per year. It is the only stable nesting spot in the Eastern Atlantic. Most spawns occur in the eastern islands of the archipelago: Sal, Maio and Bonavista, the latter being the main spawning ground. We also found in the area four other species of turtles: Tabasco turtle or White turtle (youth), Carey (youth), Leatherback turtle (sporadic adults) and Olive Ridley or Olivacea (ill or deceased individuals). The main threats to the turtles found in Cabo Verde are: development of coastal tourism and unsustainable consumption of turtle meat and eggs by local people, despite it being illegal. Unfortunately, human impacts are responsible for the rapid decline of sea turtle populations in recent years. It is important that we educate ourselves on the issues that are destroying our oceans and sea turtle populations. If we work to solve these problems, we can create a better marine ecosystem that will be mutually beneficial to humans and animals. Despite laws protecting sea turtles in most countries, the illegal trade of their meat of turtles continues to be a threat. In many parts of the world, these animals are harvested for their meat and eggs which are used for human consumption and in some places are considered a delicacy. Therefore, environmental education, responsible consumption and sustainable tourism are crucial for the survival of sea turtles.

Endangered Sea Turtles
Green sea turtles filmed in the Calvert River at AWC’s Pungalina-Seven Emu Wildlife Sanctuary. The Calvert River estuary and adjacent coastline is a hotspot for riverine and marine wildlife (Dugongs, Sawfish, a diversity of sharks and rays etc) and supports a significant population of Green Sea Turtles.
Efforts To Save Endangered Sea Turtles May Be Paying Off
Sea turtles are making a comeback. Due to factors such as poaching, habitat destruction, fishing, and climate change, nearly all sea turtle species are endangered. But data recently collected at 299 nesting sites shows 32 percent of those population increased, while only 12 percent decreased. The rest of the populations measured either stayed steady or remained unclear, due to insufficient data. Researchers attribute some of the reversal to conservation efforts, like fishing regulations and protected beach zones. But sea turtles still face environmental challenges. Rising sand temperatures have been shown to skew the gender balance of eggs, impacting fertility rates. For now, at least, this seaweed-eating species has a bit of a brighter future.

The green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas), also known as the green turtle, black (sea) turtle, or Pacific green turtle,is a large sea turtle of the family Cheloniidae. It is the only species in the genus Chelonia. Its range extends throughout tropical and subtropical seas around the world, with two distinct populations in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Their common name derives from the usually green fat found beneath their carapace (upper shell). The green sea turtle is a sea turtle, possessing a dorsoventrally flattened body covered by a large, teardrop-shaped carapace and a pair of large, paddle-like flippers. It is usually lightly colored, although parts of the carapace can be almost black in the eastern Pacific. Unlike other members of its family, such as the hawksbill sea turtle and loggerhead sea turtle, C. mydas is mostly herbivorous. The adults commonly inhabit shallow lagoons, feeding mostly on various species of seagrasses. Like other sea turtles, they migrate long distances between feeding grounds and hatching beaches. Many islands worldwide are known as Turtle Island due to green sea turtles nesting on their beaches. Females crawl out on beaches, dig nests and lay eggs during the night. Later, hatchlings emerge and walk into the water. Those that reach maturity may live to age 80 in the wild.

Woman is Saving Endangered Sea Turtles in a Former Lebanon War Zone
68-year-old Mona Khalil is a self-proclaimed "protector of the sea turtles." Khalil launched The Orange House Project -- a turtle conservation and eco-tourism project -- to help protect Tyre, Lebanon's turtles. Between the months of May and September, the turtles' hatching season, Khalil wakes at sunrise to monitor their habitat. She carefully traces the beach for eggs, placing those she finds underneath a secure metal mesh further up the embankment. Khalil meticulously details her findings and tracks the footsteps of adult turtles which scramble up the sand banks to lay eggs. Khalil claims the biggest affront to her project and the turtles these days is construction work that can encroach on the beach. http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/17/middleeast/lebanon-orange-house-turtle-conservation/index.html http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Underwater Robot Tracks Endangered Sea Turtles
For the first time ever, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency scientists have tracked endangered sea turtles remotely — using an underwater robot. The Autonomous Underwater Vehicle uses side-scan sonar technology to detect the creatures swimming and resting on the sea floor at a known turtle hotspot near North Carolina. Larisa Avens, a research fishery biologist at NOAA fisheries, said "We're looking for aspects of the acoustic signature that are turtle-shaped." The team found juvenile and adult Loggerhead turtles, as well as Kemp's Ridley turtles in Cape Lookout Bight in North Carolina's Outer Banks. http://feeds.mashable.com/~r/Mashable/~3/lUC1WuW9VFc/ http://www.wochit.com

Turtle swallows coins: Surgeons find 915 coins inside endangered green sea turtle - TomoNews
SRI RACHA, THAILAND — A team of veterinarians worked hours to remove more than 900 coins from the stomach of an endangered turtle found Monday in Sri Racha, Thailand. According to Thai tradition, tossing coins into a turtle pond can bring long life. Whether that’s true for the humans tossing the coins depends on your religious affiliation. However, it was certainly not the case for one poor 25-year-old female green sea turtle, the Associated Press reported. Unable to digest the coins, the turtle was taken to Chulalongkorn University for treatment by the Thai navy. She had swallowed 11 pounds of currency, a load so heavy it cracked her ventral shell, causing a life-threatening infection. A CT scan showed that 915 coins were lodged inside the turtle’s digestive system. Surgeons from the school’s veterinary faculty spent over four hours removing the coins bit by bit through a 4-inch incision. The turtle — nicknamed “Om-Sim,” or “Bank” in Thai — is recovering in the university’s animal hospital. It’s currently on a liquid-only diet. Nantarika Chansue, one of the surgeons who operated on Om-Sim, urged Thais to please stop throwing their dang coins into turtle ponds. She also thanked the kind souls who donated $428 for the turtle’s medical bills, the Bangkok Post reported. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Diver's magical interaction with endangered sea turtle is no accident
Serena is a young biology student who has swam among the sea creatures and coral in Mexico, Belize and Cuba. One of her favorite underwater animals is the sea turtle. On her adventures, she has met Green Turtles, Loggerhead Turtles and a few of these incredibly rare Hawksbill Turtles. They are critically endangered.<br><br>On this dive in Akumal, Mexico, she was cruising over the reef, peering under coral ledges and looking around the sea fans. When she saw a Hawksbill Turtle in the distance, she slowly made her way over and was able to get very close.<br><br>It may not be obvious, but her approach was very carefully planned to put the beautiful creature at ease. The first thing Serena did was to move lower in the water to the same level as the turtle. She moved slowly around to the front where the turtle could see her clearly without feeling pinned between her and the reef. Predators, such as sharks, attack from above and behind in a way that is designed to prevent being seen until the last possible moment.<br><br>Serena's approach allows the turtle to get a good look at her and make its own assessment of her intentions. She hovers at a respectable distance with her arms in and carefully uses only her fins to adjust her position. Even her breathing is slow, despite her excitement. Her desire to touch the turtle is obvious when she opens her hands and extends them toward it invitingly, but she allows the turtle to make the decision. After a magical moment where the two stare into each other's eyes, the Hawksbill decides that there is no threat and it continues looking for coral and sponges to nibble on.<br><br>Surprisingly, the Hawksbill even swims right below Serena as it turns its eyes back to the coral. In doing so, the turtle put itself close enough to Serena that she could have easily touched it.<br>Serena again moves lower and to the left to avoid seeming like a threat directly above. The pair continued to swim together over the reef for almost ten minutes, allowing an interaction that few people are lucky enough to ever experience.<br><br>Like all sea turtles, this Hawksbill is capable of short bursts of speed that could instantly take it far away from her. The fact that it continued to glide slowly along, completely comfortable with the interaction provided Serena with one of the most peaceful and emotional experiences possible for a diver.<br><br>We rarely give animals enough credit for their intelligence, perceptiveness, and ability to communicate. We are now starting to understand that without words, animals must use many other cues to interpret meaning and intent from the actions of other animals. Small movements, gestures, distance, and even our breathing will tell an animal more than we expect. We can also learn a lot when it comes to interpreting an animal's behavior and comfort level.<br><br>A careful and respectful approach will create a completely different encounter than a careless one.

Saving Endangered Sea Turtle from Fishing Hook - Hawaii 10.30.12
It is illegal to kill, capture or harass sea turtles. All six species of sea turtles in the US are protected under the Endangered Species Act of 1973.   I deeply love and respect sea life and its natural cycles. Under normal circumstance I would never touch a sea turtle however, this was anything but normal for the turtle.   I was watching this beautiful Hawaiian moonrise from the beach with friends, when I noticed a lone fisherman reeling in a large catch. As I looked closer, I could see that it was not a fish but sadly, an endangered sea turtle caught on his hook. Too many times I have come across a similar scene only to watch in shock, a fisherman cut the line loose and leave the hook in the honu for it to fend for itself and possibly die. This time, I ran down the beach and asked the fisherman if he would like help since I knew it would be very difficult to set her free, on his own. I offered to grab the honu once he brought her close enough to shore, so that we would be able to remove the hook that was lodged in her front right flipper. We both agreed and began working together to bring her in quickly and safely.   Within one minute of getting her to shore, we had her unhooked. I took a few moments to inspect her flipper where the hook had been and to make sure that she had not hurt herself in the process of being reeled in. She was in great shape and seemed more than ready to return to her home. Without any haste, this precious honu was promptly, lovingly and safely returned to swim with her family. As for the fisherman, who only moments before had been a complete stranger, was now sharing a bright smile and hug with me for a job well done.   To know that she is now swimming freely, has the opportunity to live her life and possibly give life to other endangered Honu, brings much hope.   When going into the ocean and nature, please, please, PLEASE clean up after yourselves. If you are going to fish, please apply responsible fishing methods. Pack it in, pack it out. By cleaning up after ourselves and taking responsibility for our actions, we are all helping prevent the extinction of one of the oldest and most peaceful species on the planet.       Music "The Lonely Smurfer" by Johnny Hawaii Johnnyhawaii.bandcamp.com

Endangered Baby Sea Turtles Hatching || ViralHog
Occurred on July 12, 2017 / Isle of Palms, South Carolina, USA Info from Licensor: "It was a once in a lifetime experience to witness these amazing little creatures and three nights in a row! We were on vacation at Isle of Palms when we noticed two areas side by side roped off on the beachside our walk out protecting sea turtle nests. Early in the evening, the sand was starting to cave in on one, so we knew that there was activity. My daughter got her boogie board and was working to get the sand flat and at around 8:30 p.m. the sand cave in and around 70 sea turtles broke free headed to the water. It is believed that the second nest hatched later that night. On the 2nd night, around the same time, 5 more came out of the second nest and on the 3rd night, 25 more came out of the 1st night. It was truly amazing! I recorded the first night and decided if it happens again I would just be in the moment and enjoy it. Never in my wildest dream did I think it would happen 3 nights in a row!"

Manatees and Green Sea Turtles Are No Longer Endangered
West Indian manatees and some colonies of green sea turtles have been in danger of extinction for decades. But scientists have some good news about the much-loved sea creatures, which both have their largest U.S. populations in Florida. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says the West Indian manatee should be reclassified from "endangered" to the improved status of "threatened." The agency says threats to manatees are being addressed — and they are responding with major population growth. Conservation officials say they counted only 1,267 manatees in Florida when aerial surveys began in 1991. Now, the state hosts more than 6,300 manatees. Meanwhile, 2015 has been a good year for another species in Florida — green sea turtles. At The Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge in Florida, scientists counted 14,152 nests last year. In 2001, there were 198. http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2016/01/08/462398576/finally-some-good-news-for-manatees-and-green-sea-turtles http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Entertainment using http://wochit.com
