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.

What Do Sea Turtles Eat: Foods That Sea Turtles Eat in the Wild
 
02:25
What Do Sea Turtles Eat: Foods That Sea Turtles Eat in the Wild http://what-do-animals-eat.com/what-do-turtles-eat/ Have you ever wonder what foods do sea turtles enjoy in their natural environment? For the next 2 minutes we will be talking about what sea turtles eat. This video will discuss 5 of the 7 major sea turtle species of the world. The type of food that sea turtles eat depends greatly on the type of turtle and its natural habitat and their capacity to chew on some specific types of marine life What do Hawksbill Turtles Eat? Hawksbill turtles have jaws that look similar to a hawk's beak. This narrow and curved design helps the turtle get food from hard to reach crevices. Hawksbill turtles feed off of sponges, shrimp and squid found around coral reefs. Hawksbill turtles are often called spongivores, because their diets consist of soft, spongy sea animals. What do Leatherback Sea Turtles Eat? Leatherback turtles have jaws that are similar to scissors. These turtles use their jaws to spear jellyfish and other soft-shelled animals. Leatherbacks must stick to a soft diet to prevent their jaws from being damaged. Because of their jellylike diet, leatherbacks are often called gelatinivores. What do Green sea turtles eat? Green sea turtles have jaws with jagged edges that cut through sea grasses, algae and seaweed. Green sea turtles are the only adult turtles that are herbivores, or exclusive plant eaters. What do Loggerhead turtles Eat? Loggerhead turtles use their powerful jaws to crush crab, jellyfish, mollusks and shrimp. As adults, loggerheads prefer an all meat diet. What do Flatback sea turtles? Flatback sea turtles are omnivores that eat plants and animals including seaweed, sea cucumbers, crab, cuttlefish, shrimp and soft corals.

Pacific Leatherback Sea Turtles
 
04:10
What reptile outlived the dinosaurs, is the largest of its kind on earth, can dive to a depth of half a mile, and migrates more than 6,000 miles across the Pacific Ocean? The answer is the Pacific leatherback sea turtle -- California's official state marine reptile. This fascinating but critically endangered species is essential to the state's marine ecosystem. We talk with Scott Benson, marine ecologist with NOAA's Southwest Fisheries Science Center, about Pacific leatherback sea turtles, threats to their survival, and what you can do to help. Everyday Action: Bring your own bags to the store since sea turtles will mistake plastic bags for jellyfish. Also, never release balloons outside. They also can end up in the ocean and be eaten by sea turtles and other marine life.

Baby Leatherback sea turtle rescued from being under the sand for three days. The Leatherback Turtle is the largest turtle in the sea. It is endangered and watched over very closely by the Volusia County Turtle Patrol Each spring, sea turtles come ashore to lay eggs in a deep hole in the sand they dig with their hind flippers. On this day in mid July, three days after the turtles hatch, the officials from the Turtle Patrol, come by to dig up the nest to count the turtles which were successful and made it to the surface. Some, however do not make it, but occasionally a few hatch but do not quite make it to the surface. This is the story of "Reggie" who was brought to the surface, given cpr and set on its course to the ocean. Enjoy! Hope you "like" it.

Believe It or Not the Scariest Mouth in the World Belongs to a Species of Turtle
 
03:40
Read More: http://www.GistOnThis.com Here's one species of turtle you don't want to kiss. Believe me, the Leatherback Sea Turtle might look adorable and harmless, but lurking behind its cute face is a set of killer teeth, making its mouth one of the scariest in the world.. Hundreds of these jagged stalactite-like teeth called 'papillae' line the turtle's mouth and esophagus, all the way down to the gut. You just have to see it to believe it. The Leatherback is the third largest living reptile in the world, and also the largest turtle. It's actually a pretty docile creature, with a diet mainly consisting of jellyfish. In fact, the only reason it gets so huge is because it eats an astonishingly large number of the slow-moving jellies. Sometimes, the leatherback can consume about 73 percent of its own body weight in a single day, which is about 16,000 calories and three to seven times more than it needs to survive. Talk about binge eating! So why does this jelly-eating machine need a set of killer teeth, you ask? Well, the teeth gives it an evolutionary advantage. The sharp, pointy, backward-facing papillae actually prevent the slippery jelly from escaping by floating back out of the mouth. This means that the leatherback is able to eat all kinds of jellies -- right from the smallest swarms to the most massive ones like the Lion's Mane Jelly. This turtle species also has an unusually long esophagus that extends way past its stomach and all the way to the rear. Then it loops back up to connect to the stomach. So it's like a conveyor belt designed to catch, store and continuously process food. When a baby leatherback first makes an appearance in the world, it is just a tiny hatchling about 3-inches long. But thanks to all the water-rich jellies it consumes in its lifetime, it can grow to an average of four to six ft. long. Now, if you're thinking that the humungous turtle does nothing but eat and laze around all day, you're wrong. The leatherback turtle is a migratory species, travelling over 10,000 miles a year. It needs all the energy it can get to cover such large distances. And since jellyfish aren't exactly energy-boosting foods, the leatherback's best bet is to stuff its face with as many jellies as it can manage in one go. Unfortunately, despite its brilliantly designed digestive system, the leatherback is unable to differentiate between jellyfish and plastic trash floating in the water that gets stuck in its huge papillae. This is becoming a huge cause of concern as the fascinating creature is facing extinction. Serious efforts are made to preserve the species and I sure do hope they succeed.

mother sea turtle lays eggs
 
03:04
mother sea turtle lays eggs We warmly welcome you to the paradise Sri Lanka and to the Induruwa Sea Turtle Conservation Project & Sea Turtle Information Center Our project is situated in Induruwa, in the Southern Province of Sri Lanka. The main purpose of our project is to incubate turtle eggs and release the baby turtles to the sea. Apart from that, we show foreign volunteers about the turtle hatchery. There are seven species of sea turtles. They are the leatherback sea turtle, green sea turtle, loggerhead sea turtle, Kemp's ridley sea turtle, hawksbill sea turtle, flatback sea turtle and olive ridley sea turtle. Four of the species have been identified as "endangered" or "critically endangered" with another two being classed as "vulnerable". Sea turtles constitute a single radiation that became distinct from all other turtles at least 110 million years ago. Most species of Sea Turtles will hatch during the night hours. Turtle nests that hatch during the day, are more prone to predators like birds, crab, sea birds, raccoon, ants and other animals on the beach. They also encounter more human activity on beaches after hatching and can run into human obstacles such as beach chairs, umbrellas, sand castles, as well as dogs and people on the beaches themselves. The hatchlings then proceed into the ocean, where a variety of marine predators await them. Although sea turtles usually lay around one hundred eggs at a time, on average only one of the eggs from the nest will survive to adulthood. While many of the things that endanger these hatchlings are natural, such as predators including sharks, raccoons, foxes, and seagulls, many new threats to the sea turtle species have recently arrived and increased with the ever-growing presence of humans. One of the most significant threats now comes from bycatch due to imprecise fishing methods. Long-lining has been identified as a major cause of accidental sea turtle death. There is also black-market demand for tortoiseshell for both decoration and supposed health benefits. Sea turtles must surface to breathe. Caught in a fisherman's net, they are unable to surface and thus drown. Another danger comes from marine debris, especially from abandoned fishing nets in which they can become entangled. General activities of our project: • Collecting of Turtle eggs from the beach. • Collected and rescued eggs are hatched safely away from predators before being released into the sea at night-time. Some are kept back for a short period for 'head starting' until they are stronger. • Providing treatments for disabled turtles caught by fishing nets. When we get information on a disabled turtle we take our full effort to visit the turtle and start doing necessary treatments to recover it. We go anywhere in between Hambantota and Kaluthara for this service. • Raise the awareness of marine turtle conservation needs at regional levels. (Conducting of seminars, awareness workshops, show videos, distributing leaflets, etc.) • Conducting continuous studies on post-nesting migrations and biology of marine turtles. • Share tracking data and findings to relevant authorities and contribute to the development of a regional marine turtle conservation plan.

Stranded 500-Pound Leatherback Sea Turtle Receiving Care After Rescue
 
01:04
Employees from the South Carolina Aquarium's Sea Turtle Hospital are administering aid and caring for a 500-pound leatherback sea turtle named Yawkey. On Saturday, the turtle was rescued by Good Samaritans after they spotted him stranded on a remote beach. Leartherback sea turtles are massive creatures and rescuing one can be quite an undertaking. Employees from the South Carolina Aquarium's Sea Turtle Hospital are administering aid and caring for a 500-pound leatherback sea turtle named Yawkey.  The turtle was spotted Saturday after being stranded on a remote beach.  The group of rescuers used a four-wheel drive truck to transport Yawkey away from the sands. Via Facebook, the South Carolina Aquarium noted, "Saturday's live rescue was the first in South Carolina's history, and Yawkey is the first of its kind to be treated at the Aquarium."  The turtle reportedly has low blood sugar so it is receiving both antibiotics and liquids. Aquarium employees are hoping he'll recover quickly, because this particular turtle species often doesn't thrive in captivity.  An aquarium sea turtle rescue program manager stated, "Sea turtles are tough. They are really tough animals. This turtle is in good enough condition that we can give it a good head start and release it. I do feel good about its prognosis."

17 AMAZING Turtle Facts
 
10:54
One thing that turtles are not known for is their teeth … that’s because they have sharp, horned beaks, like birds. But while they’re still in the egg, they do develop something called an ‘egg tooth’. But it’s not really a tooth. It’s actually a sharp structure formed out of thick skin at the animal’s snout, and the critter uses it to break through its shell. After hatching, the structure is soon shed by the turtle. #15 Pet Turtles Turtles rank among the most popular pet choices in the world. If you’re thinking of getting one of these reptiles as a pet, the Humane Society has some guidelines for you. The sale of smaller turtles (with shells or 4 inches (10 cm) or less) was prohibited in the US in 1975 to prevent the spread of salmonella. Remember that turtles are not ‘low maintenance’ creatures. They need plenty of room to grow, since some species might reach a foot in length (30 cm). And since they can live for decades, you better be prepared for a long term relationship of caring for the critter. #14 Turtle Vision Did you know that turtles are visually oriented creatures? They rely on sight to identify food, other members of their species, and potential predators. Researchers also say that turtles can perceive colors … and they seem to have favorite colors like red, yellow and orange, which they find appetizing. When seeing a object in one of those shades, the turtles will check it out to see if it’s edible. #13 Making Noise While turtles do lack vocal cords, some species are still known to make some noise. They can accomplish this by forcing air from their lungs, or by swallowing. The red-footed tortoise from South America will emit a clucking noise that’s similar to a chicken. The Giant Musk Turtle found in Central America is said to yelp like a dog when it’s under attack. Male Travancore tortoises from Southeast Asia can generate a high-pitched mechanical sound to attract mates. And the female leatherback sea turtle is known to make a noise that’s said to be similar to the sound of a human belching! #12 Shell Shock Like the turtles themselves, their shells can be found in a variety of shapes and colors. While the heavy, formidable shell of the tortoise is iconic, it also creates a burden for the critter … causing it to trudge slowly across land. But other species like the softshell turtles have carapaces that are characterized by the lack of horny scutes (sk-YOOTs), or scales. While they have a bony layer underneath, the carapace is flexible and leathery, especially at the edges. A softer, lighter shell means that the animals can move faster whether in the water or on land. #11 Tiniest Turtle The leatherback sea turtle is the world’s largest living turtle. So what’s the world’s smallest extant turtle? That would be the Speckled Tortoise. The carapace of a male measures a little over 3 inches (7.5 cm) in length. Females grow larger, with a carapace length of about 4 inches (10 cm). Weighing less than 6 ounces (0.17 kg), these reptiles are identified by a flattened shell that has serrated edges and a speckled, orange-brown coloration. They’re native to a small, arid region of western South Africa.

Over 100,000 Sea Turtles Nest at the Same Time. How? | National Geographic
 
03:52
Hundreds of thousands of olive ridley sea turtles all arrive together to lay their eggs near Ostional, Costa Rica—and we know little about how they coordinate that feat. Vanessa Bezy, a National Geographic young explorer grantee, is trying to find out more. To test the hypothesis that pheromones trigger the nesting behavior, she's giving a number of turtles that are swimming toward the nesting site a zinc sulfate solution that will temporarily block their sense of smell, which will let her see whether they're less likely to come ashore. The solution, which wears off within five days, doesn't harm the turtles. The study, approved by the Costa Rican government and the University of North Carolina's biology department, should provide invaluable information to conservation groups hoping to protect these animals. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe About National Geographic: National Geographic is the world's premium destination for science, exploration, and adventure.

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.

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% . THAT IS EXTINCTION LEVEL. SEA TURTLES IN COSTA RICA WILL BE GONE VERY SOON IF WE DON'T DO SOMETHING TO SAVE THEM RIGHT NOW !!! contact me if you would like to help us in our efforts to save the sea turtles: [email protected] love & light, and keep up the fight ! mary at rainsong

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.

Sea Turtle Facts: 14 Facts about Sea Turtles
 
03:27
Here are 14 facts about sea turtles, a beautiful yet fascinating sea creature found in warm and temperate oceans. Video courtesy of Peet J van Eeden The silent world of sea turtles https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=baJgS-07F5o Used under creative commons license. Images used courtesy of Wikipedia Synopsis here are seven species of sea turtle that exist in the worlds oceans today. They are one of the worlds most ancient creatures and have exisited for about 110 million years. They are known for their shell or carapice which is stream-lined to help the turtle swim. The difference between sea turtles and other types of turtle is that sea turtles cannot pull their heads and legs into their shells. The colour of sea turtles vary from species to species and can be yellow, green, or black. They eat foods such as shrimp, sea sponges, snails, algae, moluscs, sea weed, and crabs. It is unknown what their population is because male sea turtles and young juvinile sea turtles do not go back to the shore once they hatch and they remain at sea. Sea turtles such as green sea turtles have the ability to stay underwater for up to five hours. This is despite their actual feeding time being less than five minutes. When they are underwater, the sea turtle slows their heart rate in order to preserve their oxygen underwater. This can slow up to 9 minutes per beat. They enjoy warm and temperate waters and they migrate long distances as far as 1400 miles between the areas they feed and where they nest. Not much is known about the behaviour of sea turtles as they spend most of their time at sea and much of the information gathered has been obtained from observing females and their hatchlings. When they nest females will dig out a nest in the ground an bury their eggs before they return to the sea and leave the eggs alone. When they hatch, the young sea turtles are completely on their own and without the aid of their mother. They will take as long as a week to dig themselves out of the nest in which they are buried. Once they have dug themselves out of the burrow, young sea turtles will start to move towards the ocean but will do this in the cover of night to avoid predators and launch out to the sea left to fend for themselves.

Florida Keys Webcam Captures Sea Turtle Hatch
 
03:05
Using infrared lighting, a live-streaming, high-definition "turtle webcam" positioned on a beach in the Florida Keys recorded the hatch of about 100 baby loggerhead sea turtles on Friday, July 25, just before 9 p.m. Friday evening, the 3-inch-long babies erupted from a hole, came out en masse and headed to the Atlantic Ocean under dim moonlight. The camera uses infrared lighting so hatchlings won't be confused by artificial light and will go to sea — guided by moonlight reflecting on the water -- instead of pushing further onto land. The webcam has been focused on the nest in the Lower Keys for almost two weeks, and is part of ongoing efforts in the Florida Keys to raise awareness of sea turtles and the need to protect them. Loggerhead, green, leatherback, hawksbill and Kemp's ridley sea turtles nest on beaches in the Keys and other parts of Florida, and inhabit Florida and Keys waters. All five species are considered either threatened or endangered, and are protected by the Federal Endangered Species Act of 1973. The webcam was approved by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission. Online: http://www.fla-keys.com/turtlecam

Look what we found when we went strolling at Levera Beach... Usually leatherbacks nest during nighthours and it is very rare to see them at daytime. We immediately informed Nic from Ocean Spirits who tagged the turtle(www.oceanspirits.org). These guys do a fantastic job by doing research and being on watch every night to make sure the turtles can nest without disturbance. If you want to discover the wild side of Grenada get in touch with us and we will show you the hottest spots above and below the surface.
