Padre Island National Seashore in Texas, has seen great success with their sea turtle program (#swipeleft ), with a total of 123 Kemp’s ridley nests found at this national seashore, alone for 2018. Other national seashores, however, unfortunately have a lower nesting success rate. One of the articles in today’s edition of the National Parks Traveler, reports a lower number of sea turtle (Loggerhead) nests found at Gulf Islands National Seashore, due to a number of reasons. To read more of this article, and to find out what you can do to keep the turtles safe at Gulf Islands, go to www.nationalparkstraveler.org.
Despedida de un grandioso grupo de voluntarios de Australia y Nueva Zelanda que han participado y ayudado con el Programa de Conservación de Tortugas Marinas de Corcovado. También en la comunidad de Carate, han pintado y arreglado la parada de buses y han dejado un hermosos rótulo en la primera escuela sostenible de Costa Rica contruida con bambú. Gracias por su ayuda y buen viaje de regreso. Pura Vida! #planetconservation#antipodeans#seaturtle#volunteer#costa Rica

I Had the good fortune of shooting a turtle release today for @chasinadreamphotography and the @loggerheadmarinelifecenter . Gavin was rescued near Dubois park several months ago after being hooked. He was nursed back to health and cleared for release last week by head Vet at the center, Dr.Charles Manire.
Its always such a pleasure to speak with Dr Manire. He always has such positive energy and does his work from an egoless place, expecting little recognition.Truly a labor of love:) He took 15 minutes of his precious time to talk with me about the current state of turtle conservation and nesting numbers in south Florida. The numbers have been on the increase the past 4 to 5 years, Charles believes this is due to the conservation efforts that were done as far back a 3 decades ago. Many sea turtle species can take between 20-40 years to reach sexual maturity, so the efforts of scientist and conservationist back then, is just now starting to be felt. The number of nest next year is expected to be a record breaking year! Great news for sea turtles and all the people who work tirelessly for their preservation! Gavin is a sub adult loggerhead "sub adult, by .07cm" according to Dr Manire:) He's a beast, it took 6 people to lift him off the cart and gently place him on the sand. Gavin was fitted with a radio transmitter that scientist will use to track his movement over the next year before it falls off.They should start receiving data over the next week. Check out marine life.org for more info and look for more of my images in the next Jupiter Courier :) #jupitercourier#loggerheadmarinelifecenter#seaturtle#conservation#marinebiology#scienceofsaving#endangeredspecies#thegoodstuff#jupiter#juno#teamcanon#natgeo#aquatech_imagingsolutions#sealegacy#missionblue#gratitude#helpinghand#karma#saveturtles#nature#marinelife#jeffbiegephotography

Earlier today, Airbus & ANA unveiled the airline’s first A380 in special Flying Honu livery. ANA will take delivery of the first of three A380s early next year and begin service in May between Tokyo and Honolulu. See how 120 painters transformed the A380 from green to green sea turtle in 21 days and how you can track the aircraft at fr24.com/blog. ____
A lot of sea creatures really do “hitch a ride” on sea turtles in the East Australian Current, just like in the movie! For the sake of other sea creatures, stop harming sea turtles! #stopthestraw#findingnemo
