Sea Turtle with Straw up its Nostril - "NO" TO PLASTIC STRAWS
 
08:07
This is the original video! Filmed by Christine Figgener, marine biologist at Texas A&M University. ***WARNING: Graphic Content & Inappropiate/ Strong Language!*** This video shows graphically why plastic waste is detrimental to marine life, especially single-use plastics (such as straws, which are one of the most redundant items). This turtle suffers from an item that is human-made and used by most of us frequently. The research team around Christine Figgener (Texas A&M University) found a male Olive Ridley sea turtle during an in-water research trip in Costa Rica. He had a 10-12 cm PLASTIC STRAW lodged in his nostril and they removed it. SAY "NO" TO PLASTIC STRAWS, AND ANY KIND OF ONE-TIME USE PLASTIC ITEMS! If you would like to support our research and conservation efforts in Costa Rica, please think about donating to our GoFundMe Campaign http://gofundme.com/wuhvd6zj UPDATES The Plastic Pollution Coalition just launched their "No Straw" Campaign in collaboration with us. Take the No-Straw-Pledge and learn more: http://www.plasticpollutioncoalition.... ----- The Story behind the viral video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLN52... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MPHb... OUR STORY: My research team found a male Olive Ridley sea turtle during an in-water research trip in Costa Rica. He had a 10-12 cm PLASTIC STRAW lodged in his nostril. After initially thinking that we are looking at a parasitic worm, and trying to remove it to identify it, we cut a small piece off to investigate further and finally identified what we were REALLY looking at. After a short debate about what we should do we removed it with the plier of a swiss army knife which was the only tool available on our small boat (not intended for overnight stays), since we were on the ocean, in a developing country, a few hours away from the coast and several hours away from any vet (probably days from any vet specialised in reptiles, not to mention sea turtles) and x-ray machines. Plus, we would have incurred a penalty (up to time in jail) on ourselves by removing the turtle since that is beyond our research permits. He did very obviously not enjoy the procedure very much, but we hope that he is now able to breath more freely. The blood from the shoulder is from a 6mm skin biopsy we took previously to this event for a genetic study (part of our permitted research), which usually doesn't bleed much, but which started bleeding while restraining the turtle. We disinfected the air passageway with iodine and kept the turtle for observation before releasing him back into the wild. The bleeding stopped pretty much immediately after the removal of the straw, and when we released him, he swam happily away. The turtle very likely swallowed the straw while ingesting other food items and then either expelled the straw together with the redundant sea water through her nostrils, or regurgitated the straw and it ended up in the wrong passageway. The nasal cavity of sea turtles is connected directly to the palate (roof of the mouth) by a long nasopharyngeal duct.

Sea Turtles (HD) | JONATHAN BIRD'S BLUE WORLD
 
12:37
In Malaysia there is an island known for more sea turtles than virtually anywhere on Earth. Jonathan visits this amazing ecosystem to learn about the life cycle of sea turtles. He is surprised to discover an amazingly complex and competitive environment. This is an HD upload of a previously released segment. ********************************************************************** If you like Jonathan Bird's Blue World, don't forget to subscribe! You can join us on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/BlueWorldTV Twitter https://twitter.com/BlueWorld_TV Instagram @blueworldtv Web: http://www.blueworldTV.com ********************************************************************** We head out towards the reefs of Sipadan island. This island is so small that you can walk all the way around it on the beach in an hour. Yet, it has a huge population of sea turtles. As the school of fish swims away, I spot my first sea turtle—a Green sea turtle swimming over the reef. It wasn’t hard because they’re everywhere. Some are swimming around, while others are napping on and in the reef. Sea turtles actually sleep underwater while holding their breath. A sea turtle can easily hold its breath over an hour! A few hundred feet away, I find a Hawksbill sea turtle munching on the reef. She is plucking out tasty sponges and invertebrates that hide in the coral, rather than eat the coral itself. It takes a tough stomach to digest this stuff. As we circle the island, I can see the tracks left in the sand by females that have climbed the beach to lay their eggs. It all starts when a male, identified by his long tail, catches up with a cooperative female and courts her. From the surface, I see the action and I prepare to film it. The mating has begun, and I quietly approach to film the action. Mating is not easy for the female sea turtle. She must swim—and rise to breathe—for both of them. The male's long tail holds the female and fertilizes the eggs, while claws on his front flippers give him the ability to grasp the female's shell. The commotion doesn't go unnoticed by other males in the area. They flock to the mating pair, which have drifted away from the reef. Eventually, no less than four additional male turtles arrive to challenge the suitor. They all try the same techniques and it is starting to wear him down. Meanwhile the female is near exhaustion. The male is only struggling to hold on….the female is struggling to survive. Hours later, the male has outlasted his rivals. He fertilizes the female's eggs and with luck his genes will continue on. As if her job weren't hard enough already, the female now faces another tremendous task--to lay the eggs—but it must wait until nightfall. After the sun sets, I head to the beach in total darkness. The females come ashore and lay their eggs in the sand. I have found a turtle hauling herself out of the water, painstakingly clawing her way up the beach to high ground. Although sea turtles live their entire lives in the ocean, they lay their eggs in a nest on the beach. After the sea turtle reaches an area well above the high tide line, she begins to throw sand around to create a pit. She's out of her element and vulnerable. The slightest sound or light would frighten her back into the water. She must stop frequently to catch her breath. Her crushing weight on land literally asphyxiates her. She begins to dig a hole about 3 feet deep with her rear flippers. The hole doesn't just protect the eggs from predators. The sex of the baby turtles is a function of the incubation temperature. A shallow nest baking in the sun will be too warm and all the babies will be female. A deep one will be too cold and the babies will all be male. Digging to the right depth insures a good mix of males and females. At last she begins to lay as many as 100 squishy eggs about the size of ping pong balls into the nest. In 2 months, these eggs will hatch and the baby turtles will emerge. After she has finished laying her eggs, she carefully fills in the hole. Then she cleverly disguises the exact location of the nest by flinging some sand around. After two hours of effort, she plods her way laboriously back to the sea, completely exhausted. Two months later, newly hatched sea turtles race to the sea. Each baby turtle must rush past a gauntlet of predators from land, sky and sea to reach the open ocean. Odds are, only one of these baby sea turtles will survive. On their journey, the sea turtles must fight their way through the surf, swim across the shallows and then make their way to the open ocean, away from predators on the reef. They won’t return to their home on the reef until they are large enough to be safe—about the size of a dinner plate. It’s a long and perilous journey but if this sea turtle survives, it may go on to live over a hundred years.

Sea Turtle Entangled in Ghost Net Rescued
 
04:32
This video shows the detrimental effects of so-called ghost nets on marine animals. ***Warning: GRAPHIC CONTENT*** Video Credit and Copyright: Christine Figgener *** This footage is managed exclusively by Viralvideouk.com. If you wish to license this footage please contact [email protected] For more viral videos check here https://www.youtube.com/user/viralvideouk1 ** ----- Almost to the day exactly one year ago my research team found a plastic drinking straw embedded in a male olive ridley sea turtle's nostril (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wH878t78bw). We removed it and hopefully eased his suffering and improved his quality of life. This past 9th of August 2016, my research team once again encountered a sea turtle in distress. We found an exhausted olive ridley female swimming close to our research boat and she was dragging a huge bulk of discarded fishing net behind her. Parts of it were wrapped around her throat and had already started to cut into her flesh. We took her onboard our boat, cut-off the net, and disinfected her cuts with iodine. Due to the knowledge of the scarcity of sea turtle rehab facilities and lack of expert care for injured sea turtles in Costa Rica, we released the female back into the water since she seemed otherwise healthy and strong. As biologists, we don't actively seek out injured wildlife, but our research happens to position us at the front-lines of reality looking at the detrimental effects of human impact on wildlife. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Our research is approved by the US IACUC and is conducted under research permits issued by the Costa Rican government, MINAE/SINAC and CONAGEBio.

(M.S.) ----------------------------------------------------- GHOST NETS "Ghost nets are fishing nets that have been left or lost in the ocean by fishermen. These nets, often nearly invisible in the dim light, can be left tangled on a rocky reef or drifting in the open sea. They can entangle fish, dolphins, sea turtles, sharks, dugongs, crocodiles, seabirds, crabs, and other creatures, including the occasional human diver. Acting as designed, the nets restrict movement, causing starvation, laceration and infection, and suffocation in those that need to return to the surface to breathe.

World's Largest Sea Turtle! Giant Leatherback Sea Turtle!
 
02:06
World's Largest Sea Turtle! Giant Leatherback Sea Turtle! https://youtu.be/6u5NqrKG3dA I know this is not our usual content, but could you imagine if we could get this turtle on our side? GO TEAM USA! Minigun Turtle! Make sure to subscribe to the channel! Leatherback turtles have the most hydrodynamic body design of any sea turtle, with a large, teardrop-shaped body. A large pair of front flippers powers the turtles through the water. Like other sea turtles, the leatherback has flattened fore limbs adapted for swimming in the open ocean. Claws are absent from both pairs of flippers. The leatherback's flippers are the largest in proportion to its body among extant sea turtles. Leatherback's front flippers can grow up to 2.7 m (8.9 ft) in large specimens, the largest flippers (even in comparison to its body) of any sea turtle. The leatherback has several characteristics that distinguish it from other sea turtles. Its most notable feature is the lack of a bony carapace. Instead of scutes, it has thick, leathery skin with embedded minuscule osteoderms. Seven distinct ridges rise from the carapace, crossing from the cranial to caudal margin of the turtle's back. Leatherbacks are unique among reptiles in that their scales lack β-keratin. The entire turtle's dorsal surface is colored dark grey to black, with a scattering of white blotches and spots. Demonstrating countershading, the turtle's underside is lightly colored. Instead of teeth, the leatherback turtle has points on the tomium of its upper lip, with backwards spines in its throat to help it swallow food and to stop its prey from escaping once caught. Oesophagus of a leatherback sea turtle showing spines to retain prey D. coriacea adults average 1–1.75 m (3.3–5.7 ft) in curved carapace length (CCL), 1.83–2.2 m (6.0–7.2 ft) in total length, and 250 to 700 kg (550 to 1,540 lb) in weight. In the Caribbean, the mean size of adults was reported at 384 kg (847 lb) in weight and 1.55 m (5.1 ft) in CCL. Similarly, those nesting in French Guiana, weighed an average of 339.3 kg (748 lb) and measured 1.54 m (5.1 ft) in CCL. The largest verified specimen ever found was discovered in the Pakistani beach of Sanspit and measured 213 cm (6.99 ft) in CCL and 650 kg (1,433 lb) in weight, a previous contender, the "Harlech turtle", was purportedly 256.5 cm (8.42 ft) in CCL and 916 kg (2,019 lb) in weight however recent inspection of its remains housed at the National Museum Cardiff have found that its true CCL is around 1.5 m (4.9 ft), casting doubt on the accuracy of the claimed weight, as well. On the other hand, a scientific paper claimed that the species can weigh up to 1,000 kg (2,200 lb) without providing more verifiable detail. The leatherback turtle is scarcely larger than any other sea turtle upon hatching, as they average 61.3 mm (2.41 in) in carapace length and weigh around 46 g (1.6 oz) when freshly hatched. D. coriacea exhibits several anatomical characteristics believed to be associated with a life in cold waters, including an extensive covering of brown adipose tissue, temperature-independent swimming muscles, countercurrent heat exchangers between the large front flippers and the core body, and an extensive network of countercurrent heat exchangers surrounding the trachea.

Saving Endangered Sea Turtle from Entangled Fishing Line - Hawaii 11.15.11
 
08:44
We deeply love and respect sea life and its natural cycles. Under normal circumstance we would never touch a sea turtle but this was anything but normal for the turtle. We came across this Green Sea Turtle at the bottom of the ocean while snorkeling. She was lethargic and barley moving. Upon closer look, it was noticeable that she was not moving her front flippers. She hovered near us for 30 minutes. We thought she was dying.... and she was. This beautiful Honu had become entangled in a fishing line that was wrapped tightly, multiple times around her neck and both of her front flippers making it impossible for her to move them or inhale a full breath of air. If she moved her front flippers, the fishing line would act as a noose, further tightening around her neck. She was in a life or death situation. Due to the extenuating circumstances and understanding that minutes would mean life or death for this precious Honu, human instinct to save the life of another in need, set in. We do not recommend or condone handling an endangered sea turtle. But in this unique set of circumstances, it felt like the right and only choice. She was brought closer to shore, where we were able to untangle her promptly, gently and release her safely back into the sea. Each time we cut one layer that was strangling her, she would reach her head above the water and take a huge gasp of air and look at us. When her flippers were free, she immediately began moving them with a felt sense of relief. 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. Royalty Free Music: "The Lonely Smurfer" by Johnny Hawaii (http://johnnyhawaii.bandcamp.com/)"

Man Jumps Into Ocean to Save 700-Pound Sea Turtle Being Choked By Kelp
 
01:06
Jason Kunewa was out on a boat when he noticed a leatherback sea turtle tangled in sea kelp. It was wrapped around it's left fin and neck. He didn't think twice, grabbed his GoPro, a knife and jumped into the ocean to save the 700-pound turtle. But saving the turtle had an extra special meaning for him. His aunt and grandmother in Hawaii often save sea turtles which are considered sacred animals to their family. Kunewa even has a tattoo on his arm of a sea turtle which is his family's symbol.

AMAZING FOOTAGE of Baby Turtle Hatch, Run Towards Ocean
 
01:59
Tens of thousands of baby turtles popped out of the sand and waddled toward the ocean on Friday (November 15) at a Pacific beach in the Mexican province of Oaxaca. The beach, known as Playa de Morro, is an important breeding ground for the Olive Ridley turtles, a species making a comeback after populations suffered over hunting. Adult females Olive Ridleys lay their eggs on some 120 beaches in Mexico, but the biggest numbers go to Morro Ayuta and nearby Escobilla in Oaxaca. The turtles lay around 100 eggs per breed with a 45-day gestation period. During November and December, millions of baby turtles are born here and reach the ocean for first time. "We're estimating that, in these three or four days, some three to five million young will be born which represents approximately 30 to 50 percent of hatchlings on this beach," said coordinator for the Morro Ayuta's turtle camp, Guillermo Gonzalez. Over 20 years ago, the Mexican government implemented ecological plans to protect the sea turtles, including establishing conservation areas and paying local residents to protect turtle nests. Just halfway through the hatching season, biologist Marino Alcantara expects the number of newborns this year to top 2012's hatchlings. "How many are there? Last year we had a report of around 20 million young and we're hoping for a little more because last year we had four to five million and we already have four million and it's just half way through the season," he said. Mexico has several species of turtle, and they are typically ravaged by natural predators, erratic weather and human hunters seeking their meat and eggs. Olive Ridley turtles, found in the Americas and Asia, are listed as endangered under the U.S. Endangered Species Act, although their numbers seem to be rising in the Pacific because of conservation measures.

Helping baby sea turtles into the ocean

http://www.tigresalvaje.com Helping the baby turtles swim out into the ocean was awesome. I got some amazing underwater shots with my Drift Stealth helmet camera in the waterproof enclosure, but didn't get as much underwater shots as I would have liked. I was so excited about what was happening around me that I was forgetting how to make a video. So there is some shaky footage, and maybe not as much as you would like to see of the turtles swimming, but I tried. Making these Tigre Salvaje videos has been a great experience. I really feel like these are some of the most important videos I have ever made. I know people have been donating, and offering their services to do things like build Dave a new website. It sound cliche but I really do have the best fans in the world. Dave is out there all alone, and in a situation like that it is easy to get discouraged. If you have the budget and the time visiting Tigre Salvaje would be a great experience. If you can send a small donation via paypal that would help out immensely http://www.tigresalvaje.com/donate.htm If you can't send any coin I'm sure Dave would appreciate an email saying thanks for what he is doing. Feel free to drop him a line and give a digital pat on the back. I know it would make him smile. [email protected] Song: Eternal Hope Artist: Kevin MacLeod www.incompetech.com

These newly hatched sea turtles get the red carpet treatment at Sunset Beach NC on 7/30/16. The turtles had a runway and multiple escorts for their journey to the ocean. The turtles were surprisingly fast but I guess that comes in handy if you don't have a bunch of people there. I saw several seagulls who looked like they would have loved an evening snack if we weren't around. I'm not 100% sure of the group helping them but I think it was the Sea Turtle Patrol of Sunset Beach, NC. Looks like they did a nice job with this batch.

Swimming with Sea Turtles: Beautiful Surprises Underwater
 
01:24
Swimming with Sea Turtles: Beautiful Surprises Underwater Up close footage of some divers swimming near a loggerhead sea turtle in the Atlantic. The loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta), or loggerhead, is an oceanic turtle distributed throughout the world. It is a marine reptile, belonging to the family Cheloniidae. The average loggerhead measures around 90 cm (35 in) long when fully grown, although larger specimens of up to 280 cm (110 in) have been discovered. The adult loggerhead sea turtle weighs approximately 135 kg (298 lb), with the largest specimens weighing in at more than 450 kg (1,000 lb). The skin ranges from yellow to brown in color, and the shell is typically reddish-brown. No external differences in gender are seen until the turtle becomes an adult, the most obvious difference being the adult males have thicker tails and shorter plastrons than the females. They are primarily carnivores, munching jellyfish, conchs, crabs, and even fish, but will eat seaweed and sargassum occasionally. Mature females will often return, sometimes over thousands of miles, to the beach where they hatched to lay their eggs. Worldwide population numbers are unknown, but scientists studying nesting populations are seeing marked decreases despite endangered species protections.

Facts about the Sea Turtle
 
03:59
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.

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.

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.

Turtle GPS - Science Nation
 
02:32
Sea turtles, salmon, and sharks sometimes travel the width of the ocean to return to their, "breeding ground," to reproduce. With funding from the National Science Foundation, Biologist Ken Lohmann at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill studies the role magnetic fields play in these long distance migrations. In his lab he's done behavioral studies, manipulating environmental cues to see how young turtles respond to even small changes in magnetic fields. His findings are already being put to use - wildlife officials from the state of South Carolina switched to using plastic cages to protect turtle eggs from predators after Lohmann's research suggested that wire cages can alter the magnetic cues sensed by the turtles. Lohmann will be releasing some turtles in the next few weeks off the NC coast, and beginning new studies of juveniles in his lab.
