Endangered Ocean Life - Sea Turtles, Endangered Species
 
05:21
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.

ANCHOR: Over in Indonesia, respresentatives from almost 30 countries gathered in Bali to discuss turtles. Specifically, the annual meeting was aimed at protecting the sea turtle population in the Indian Ocean and Southeast Asia. The Indonesian minister of Marine Affairs and Fisheries says the Green Marine and Leatherback turtles are in great danger of becoming extinct in Indonesia. Indonesia is pushing for tighter regulations on the sizes of nets used on commercial fishing boats. Right now turtles who get caught in the nets and have no way to escape. The minister says Indonesia needs to draw on the experiences of other countries to more effectively save the turtles.

Sea Turtles Avoiding Extinction
 
00:33
Giant sea turtles may live to photobomb another day. In fact, their numbers, according to a study published this week in Science Advances, look to be bucking a decades-long downward trend. For the analysis, researchers at Aristotle University in Greece looked at large turtles in 60 regions around the world — and found a surprising surge in their numbers. The study credited the upswing to effective measures for protecting eggs and nesting females, as well as fewer turtles being caught in fishing nets. "There’s a positive sign at the end of the story," lead author Antonios Mazaris told SFGate. https://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/animals/blogs/sea-turtle-population-extinction http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

ENDANGERED OCEANS, SEA TURTLES
 
03:33
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.

sea turtle hatchlings on their epic journey to the sea
 
02:09
it is rare to glimpse a clutch of sea turtle hatchlings hatching during daylight hours for their mad dash to the sea. usually they hatch in pre-dawn hours [2 or 3 am], to give them more time to get past the challenging obstacles such as driftwood and human garbage blocking their trajectory to the sea, pre-dawn treks also minimize the dangers of natural predators such as vultures, sea gulls, raccoons, possums, even coyotes. what a delight for these rainsong volunteers to be witness to this epic natural adventure ! these are OLIVE RIDLEY sea turtle hatchlings, hatching from one of PRETOMA's hatcheries. RAINSONG works very closely with PRETOMA in sea turtle protection activities. we cooperate together to protect the sea turtles, dolphins, whales, and all other sealife in our region of costa rica. approximately ONLY ONE IN ONE THOUSAND olive ridley hatchlings survive to reach reproduction age, 8 years old. for leatherbacks the ratio is much much less... ONE IN TEN THOUSAND LEATHERBACK HATCHLINGS survive to reach reproduction age of 15 years old. in costa rica the human nestrobbing of sea turtle eggs is 100% on most of both of cr's coastlines. there are only a very few beaches that are patrolled and protected by NGO organizations like RAINSONG & PRETOMA. sea turtle conservationists endure many dangers in their efforts to save the sea turtles that nest on costa rican beaches, crossing rivers at night, and often engaging in constructive dialogue with nestrobbers. environmental criminals can become very violent and threatening when approached even in a passive/ resistance mode. RAINSONG continues an active CONSERVATION EDUCATION program in the local schools and organizes community outreaches [ town meetings] to educate the older generations regarding new stricter laws protecting sea turtles, and their nests. sea turtle population reduction on 99% of costa rica's beaches is a frightening 90% .

Climate Change Could Result in All-Female Sea Turtle Population
 
01:01
Climate change has had a big effect on sea turtles. At this time, it's for the better but in the long term it may not stay that way. Climate change is predicted to have a big effect on sea turtles. Interestingly, it's for the better but in the long term it may not stay that way. In warmer temps, the turtles hatch higher numbers of females, as the gender is exclusively produced when egg incubation temps reach over 87 degrees. As in recent years the overall population has dwindled, that's a good thing as more turtles capable of producing young can help get the numbers back up. Scientists warn that if the warming trend continues, the eventual outcome could be that sea turtles will only hatch females. Of course, the ultimate end to that scenario is extinction. The baby boom is expected to stave off the sea turtle's possible demise by at least 150 years, but after that, their existence could again be at risk. Complicating the matter further is that hotter weather could impact the sea grasses the turtles rely upon for food. Rising sea levels could also diminish the number of available egg-laying locations unless alternate locations are found. Considering turtles have survived hundreds of millions of years thus far, it's hoped that they will quickly adapt to upcoming changes as well.

Fishing Line Project update: Turtle in trouble |  Sea Turtle
 
01:38
STCB staff recently visited St Maarten to offer training to conservation officers regarding sea turtle monitoring techniques. Whilst there they saw and captured an adult male hawksbill that had become so severely entangled in fishing line that it was undoubtedly going to lose a front flipper without help. This video by STCB volunteer Tina Lindeken shows how it's flipper was saved. Source - Sea Turtle Conservation Bonaire Sea turtles have been living on this planet named Earth for more than 100 million years and they have travelled throughout the oceans of the world. They are one of the oldest species living on the earth. Their body structure is so much well designed that they have even survived the extinction which the dinosaurs failed to survive. But now human beings have become the greatest threat for the survival of this mighty creature. We have destroyed the harmony of nature and environment in such a way that sea turtles who have survived great extinctions are now on the brink of getting extinct. We can learn about the present condition of the earth's climate and environment by observing the present condition of the sea turtles. Sea turtles are of great economic value. They are the assets of those countries who have them in their territory. Sea beaches are popular tourists spot. Every year lots of people travel throughout the beaches of the world. And the beauty of the sea beaches is its living beings. Without corals, fishes, turtles and other estuarine animals, sea beaches lose its beauty. And to keep the ecosystem of the sea working in a proper way, all living beings should be conserved. Green sea turtles are usually herbivorous in nature. They eat sea weds and keep them short which helps to maintain the quality of the sea bed. Sea grass also needed to be cut short like lawn grass for its better growth. Sea beds provide the ground for breeding for many valuable sea animals like crustaceans, fish, shellfishes etc. If turtles get extinct, health of the sea bed will be deteriorated and sea grass will decline. As a result, animals living on grass will be lost and this will affect other big animals who live on small herbivorous animals. Eventually whole ecosystem will collapse resulting in the destruction of the living beings of the sea which is the source of beauty of the sea beaches. So tourists would not come to travel sea beaches and the countries whose economies depend on tourism will suffer in the long run. Sea beaches and dune system can not hold nutrition. So vegetation does not grow well in dunes and in beaches it does not grow at all. Sea turtles nest and lay eggs on beaches. Each turtle lays almost 100 eggs each season. Not every egg would hatch and not each of the hatchlings would be able to come out of the eggs. All these unhatched eggs and hatchlings who do not become successful in coming out of the nest and make the way to the sea are the source of nutrition in the beaches and dunes. The more the nutrition the more vegetation grows in dunes. And as more vegetation grows, ecosystem of the beaches and dunes works properly. The vegetation also grabs the sands firmly in the beaches and prevents from being eroded. This saves the beauty of the sea beach. As the number of sea turtles is decreasing day by day, nutrition sources of dunes and beaches are also decreasing as a consequence. This will lead to the failure of the whole ecosystem and as a result the beach will lose its appeal to the tourists which will affect the economy of these countries severely. Sea turtles have historical importance too. They were the symbol of aristocracy and delicacy in the ancient time. In China and Japan tortoise shell were used as a decorative ornament. They used to make it from carapace scutes of tortoise shell. Sea turtle scutes were processed by ancient Greeks and Romans to make components like brush and combs. Aristocrat class people used these tortoise produced components. Peru's ancient inhabits Moche used to worship the sea and living beings of the sea. Sea turtles have often been highlighted on their arts. Mexican people harvest sea turtles for food and boot. In many areas of the world coastal people depend on turtles for the source of protein. Their skin is used for making shoes and leather bags in many areas of the world. They also protect humans from the attack of deadly box jellyfish by eating them. We can see that the world is becoming a hostile place for sea turtles. It is a clear warning to us that it might become harder for us to survive too. If we learn from the mistakes which we have made and pledge to make things right to save sea turtles from getting extinct, we will be saving ourselves too.

THE SEA TURTLES OF LAMU - Trailer
 
02:37
In 1992, the sea turtles of Lamu were beyond endangered...they were approaching extinction. Poaching in Africa isn't just elephant tusks and rhino horns, it also includes sea turtles. This is the story of LAMCOT & Odo, a conservancy trust and a former poacher, who have single-handedly saved sea turtles on the remote Manda Island off the coast of Kenya in the Lamu archipelago. They are helping the turtles overcome the odds of 1 in a 1000 to survive. Besides poachers, sharks, birds, ghost crabs, and even plastic bags they eat as jellyfish, the newest threat is the biggest and may be insurmountable...the new sea port in Lamu. An oil pipeline through Kenya will make Lamu the biggest port in Africa. The turtles may have met their match. But local organizations like LAMCOT, the Lamu Marine Conservation Trust, are fighting the oil industry giants and the local fishermen, who also threaten the turtles with their fishing nets. An additional threat is the Chinese construction workers, who are 'raping the seas' for whatever they can get. Plus, turtle meat is considered to be an aphrodisiac and is high-priced on the black market. Turtle eggs can also be sold, as well as the shell. So through neglect and poaching, the sea turtles of Lamu we're becoming rare. But after a fellow walked the coast of East Africa rescuing turtle nests and bringing the eggs to local hotels to care for and protect, the population has slowly fought its way back. https://www.facebook.com/theseaturtlesoflamu www.slingshotprods.com

Saving Endangered Sea Turtles
 
02:48
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.

But now human beings have become the greatest threat for the survival of this mighty creature. We have destroyed the harmony of nature and environment in such a way that sea turtles who have survived great extinctions are now on the brink of getting extinct. We can learn about the present condition of the earth's climate and environment by observing the present condition of the sea turtles. Sea turtles are of great economic value. They are the assets of those countries who have them in their territory. Sea beaches are popular tourists spot. Every year lots of people travel throughout the beaches of the world. And the beauty of the sea beaches is its living beings. Without corals, fishes, turtles and other estuarine animals, sea beaches lose its beauty. And to keep the ecosystem of the sea working in a proper way, all living beings should be conserved. Green sea turtles are usually herbivorous in nature. They eat sea weds and keep them short which helps to maintain the quality of the sea bed. Sea grass also needed to be cut short like lawn grass for its better growth. Sea beds provide the ground for breeding for many valuable sea animals like crustaceans, fish, shellfishes etc. If turtles get extinct, health of the sea bed will be deteriorated and sea grass will decline. As a result, animals living on grass will be lost and this will affect other big animals who live on small herbivorous animals. Eventually whole ecosystem will collapse resulting in the destruction of the living beings of the sea which is the source of beauty of the sea beaches. So tourists would not come to travel sea beaches and the countries whose economies depend on tourism will suffer in the long run. Sea beaches and dune system can not hold nutrition. So vegetation does not grow well in dunes and in beaches it does not grow at all. Sea turtles nest and lay eggs on beaches. Each turtle lays almost 100 eggs each season. Not every egg would hatch and not each of the hatchlings would be able to come out of the eggs. All these unhatched eggs and hatchlings who do not become successful in coming out of the nest and make the way to the sea are the source of nutrition in the beaches and dunes. The more the nutrition the more vegetation grows in dunes. And as more vegetation grows, ecosystem of the beaches and dunes works properly. The vegetation also grabs the sands firmly in the beaches and prevents from being eroded. This saves the beauty of the sea beach. As the number of sea turtles is decreasing day by day, nutrition sources of dunes and beaches are also decreasing as a consequence. This will lead to the failure of the whole ecosystem and as a result the beach will lose its appeal to the tourists which will affect the economy of these countries severely. Sea turtles have historical importance too. They were the symbol of aristocracy and delicacy in the ancient time. In China and Japan tortoise shell were used as a decorative ornament. They used to make it from carapace scutes of tortoise shell. Sea turtle scutes were processed by ancient Greeks and Romans to make components like brush and combs. Aristocrat class people used these tortoise produced components. Peru's ancient inhabits Moche used to worship the sea and living beings of the sea. Sea turtles have often been highlighted on their arts. Mexican people harvest sea turtles for food and boot. In many areas of the world coastal people depend on turtles for the source of protein. Their skin is used for making shoes and leather bags in many areas of the world. They also protect humans from the attack of deadly box jellyfish by eating them. We can see that the world is becoming a hostile place for sea turtles. It is a clear warning to us that it might become harder for us to survive too. If we learn from the mistakes which we have made and pledge to make things right to save sea turtles from getting extinct, we will be saving ourselves too.

Playa Grande, the largest of the beaches in Las Baulas National Park, is not only well known for surf breaks and stunning sunsets but also for visits from nesting turtles like this leatherback sea turtle. Playa Grande, Playa Ventanas and Playa Langosta, are all part of Las Baulas National Park (Parque Nacional Marino Las Baulas). The Park protects one of the most important nesting beaches for the East Pacific leatherback turtle, a population designated as critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Park Rangers, local guides, members of local communities, researchers and volunteers are working hard to save these turtles from extinction, as well as to protect the local wildlife and flora.

Largest sea turtles will become extinct soon due global warming
 
05:27
Leatherback turtles, the largest sea turtle species on Earth, could be wiped out completely if global temperatures continue to rise unabated. This has been revealed in a new study published recently. The rising temperatures coupled with abused beaches are making the environment hostile for the survival of leatherback turtles to such extent, that soon the largest sea turtles could become extinct. They are the longest-living marine species to ever ply the world's oceans. They survived catastrophic asteroid impacts and outlived the dinosaurs. But the leatherback sea turtle, the largest turtle in the world, is on the brink of extinction, and scientists question whether the animal will survive into the next decade. Leatherback turtles roam tropical and sub-tropical waters of the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian Oceans. The turtles grow as large as nine feet long, six feet wide and weigh over 454 kgs. Today they are among the most critically endangered due to a combination of historical and ongoing threats, including egg poaching at nesting beaches and juvenile and adult turtles being caught in fishing operations. The research by a team from Drexel University, Princeton University and other institutions suggests that climate change could impede this creature's ability to recover. According to the new study, published in journal Nature Climate Change, deaths of turtle eggs and hatchlings in nests buried at hotter, drier beaches are the leading projected cause the decreasing numbers of leatherback turtles. If climate patterns are even close to the projections made in the study, the eastern Pacific leatherback turtles will decline by 75% in numbers by the year 2100.

Efforts To Save Endangered Sea Turtles May Be Paying Off
 
01:37
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.

Most Endangered Species & Threatened Species: Sea Turtles on IUCN Critically Endangered Species List
 
03:29
Most Endangered Species & Threatened Species - Sea Turtles on IUCN Critically Endangered Species List There are seven species of sea turtles. They are the green sea turtle, leatherback sea turtle, loggerhead sea turtle, hawksbill sea turtle, flatback sea turtle, olive sea turtle and Kemp's Ridley sea turtle. Four of the species have been identified as "endangered" or "critically endangered." Two others are classified as "vulnerable". The capture of adult turtles for meat, eggs, leather, and tortoise shells has significantly decreased the breeding populations. Incidental capture of adults by shrimp trawls and in fishing nets has brought the Kemp's Ridley (Lepidochelys kempi), right to the brink of extinction. These are the reasons that all sea turtle species are protected. Endangered species are species that the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) have categorized as likely to become extinct. The most widely known list of endangered and threatened species is the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. 1,102 animals and 1,197 plants were on the Red List in 1998. Today the numbers have virtually tripled. 3,079 animals and 2,655 plants are now on the Red List. More than 40% are the most endangered species and are at risk for extinction.

Did you know that Sea Turtles have an innate sense of direction, tapping into the Earth's magnetic field to guide their Ocean journeys across thousands of miles? They are like the homing pigeon of the sea! Join Hannah Mermaid on an adventure below the waves to visit a friendly Sea Turtle as it leads her home :) Film by David Warth Editing: Hannah Fraser Mermaid: Hannah Mermaid Decorative fins on Hannah's tail by Mermaid Kariel Music: Fire of Purification - Erothyme (feat. Kyrstyn Pixton) Each year thousands of hatchling turtles emerge from their nests along the southeast U.S. coast and enter the Atlantic Ocean. Sadly, only an estimated one in 1,000 to 10,000 will survive to adulthood. The natural obstacles faced by young and adult sea turtles are staggering, but it is the increasing threats caused by humans that are driving them to extinction. Today, all sea turtles found in U.S. waters are federally listed as endangered, except for the loggerhead which is listed as threatened. The biggest threats include: Entanglement in fishing gear. Poaching and illegal trade of eggs, meat, and shells. Coastal development. Plastic and other marine debris. Global warming. Ocean pollution. How can you help? Adopt an endangered sea turtle and support Sea Turtle Conservancy's programs focusing on research, education, advocacy and the protection of important habitats. https://conserveturtles.org/support-stc-join-stc-and-adopt…/ www.HannahMermaid.com
