Meet Şeker, a loggerhead turtle (caretta caretta) ..who is being cared for by @dekamerturkey at the Dalyan Turtle Rehabilitation centre on iztuzu beach. Şeker was found with wounds in June at Belek, Antalya and has been brought back to health at the centre. Geçmis olsun Şeker 💕 I have been privileged enough in the past to spend a lot of time swimming alongside these magnificent animals in the sea in avsallar. However in recent years, due to tourism, the turtles have retreated further back into the sea. When i swim now i do not see them let alone have them come alongside to swim. It saddens me how they come to harm because of our holiday enjoyment. Dekamer are doing an amazing job at helping injured turtles heal and return to the sea. It was a shame to see that almost every turtles injuries were because of humans. Discarded fishing hooks, discarded fishing lines, boat propellers and motors seemed to be the majority of injuries mentioned on each turtles details. #dalyan #dekamer #turtles #turtlehospital #turtlerehab #turtlerehabilitation #loggerhead #loggerheadturtle #carettacaretta #mugla #turkeytravel #turkey

It’s washback season at Gumbo Limbo and weak turtles that wash back need our help. The center said that ALL of the wash backs that didn’t survive had plastic in their digestive tract. So sad! The wrappers that go outside bottles, balloons, so many other plastics all clog their systems. We can all help by learning the recycling rules in our municipalities and taking lids off of bottles and containers to increase chances of recycling. ⠀ ⠀ Share to raise awareness 💚⠀ ⠀ #acquaanchor #recycle #doyourpart #gumbolimbo #turtles #turtle #loggerhead #washback #ocean #marinelife #ocean #rehabilitation #plasticfreejuly @gumbolimbonaturecenter @loggerheadmarinelifecenter @savetheturtlesproject #gretavanfleet #gretathunberg #green #organic #ecofriendly #nature #sustainable #plasticfree #sustainability #bringyourown #thebronx #bronxlife ⠀ ⠀ #Repost @lidsofforg

Staying positive while new threats are facing our planet can be difficult, from the collapse of permafrost in the Arctic, to the Amazon burning, to the devastation wrought by Hurricane #Dorian in the Bahamas, to most of the world's animals threatened of extinction, to all the animal cruelty, all of these can overwhelm us, when we face it alone. Take a stand for our environment, whether it's out on the streets, recycling or helping animals. About 25% of all species are officially threatened with extinction and the earth is collapsing, now it is the time to act. There is still a lot of work to be done, but I know that we're going to accomplish great things if we all stand together . . . . #ClimateCrisis #Together #bethechange #globalwarming #stoppollution #recycling #nature #wildlife #haveavoice #community #polarbear #extinctionendshere #fridaysforfuture #loggerhead #seaturtles #climatechange #conservation #ocean #protectourplanet #amazon #world #natgeo #ourplanet #babyturtle #stopclimatechange #love #actnow Picture taken by 📷 @world_animal_protection_uk

This baby loggerhead was found with 104 pieces of plastic in its stomach last week in Boca Raton, Florida. It’s a stark reminder that we must protect our oceans and all do our part to reduce plastic use.⁣ ⁣ Emily Mirowski, a sea turtle rehabilitation assistant at Gumbo Limbo Nature Center, examined the turtle that washed ashore before it died. Mirowski told CNN that the turtle “was weak and emaciated”. After its death, the Center performed a necropsy on the turtle, which was small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, and found its stomach full of plastic.⁣ ⁣ "It was really heartbreaking," Mirowski said. "But it's something we've seen for several years and we're just glad people are finally seeing this image and hopefully it's raising awareness."

Volunteering your time to help these little guys make it to the ocean is just too much fun. They're only about 2-3 inches in size and they need lots of help if their nest is on a beach that's used for recreation. Volunteers even have to rake out tire tracks and footprints after cars drive in the sand so that the tiny hatchlings can crawl to the ocean without falling into holes. After they make it into the water they'll use all the energy they have to swim for 36 to 48 hours to find food and shelter in seaweed. It's pretty incredible that they will eventually be hundreds of pounds as adults. After about thirty years the sea turtles will come back to the same beach to make their own nests! #capehatterasnationalseashore #capehatteras #nationalpark #findyourpark #encuentratuparque #npfans #nationalparkgeek #outerbanks #northcarolina #obx #obxnow #ocean #sea #beach #eastcoast #loggerhead #turtle #seaturtle #wildlife #naturephotography #womenwhoexplore #canon #canonfanphoto

Questa bellissima foto di @alemazzz è una delle immagini che accompagnano il mio nuovo articolo per @natgeo_italia . La schiusa delle uova di Caretta caretta a Pesaro è un fatto eccezionale, non era mai stato osservato così a nord in Europa e probabilmente nel mondo. Un evento bello ma preoccupante, perché lo spostamento verso nord dell' areale di queste tartarughe può essere la conseguenza del riscaldamento dell'Adriatico (+1.1° negli ultimi 100 anni).

🚺❤🐢🌍Y la aventura concluyó... Gracias a @projectbiodiversity y a @bluavoluntariado por dejarme ser partícipe de esta experiencia inolvidable. Me he vuelto a enamorar de las "tortorugas", tan fuertes y tan indefensas. Patrullamos algunas de las playas de isla de sal por la noche, a turnos de mínimo 5 horas, para protegerlas de furtivos, proteger sus nidos y a sus futuras bebés. La contaminación de los mares es un peligro para todo el planeta, y las luces de los hoteles confunden a las pequeñas que no se dirigen al mar y mueren a las horas de estar expuestas al sol. Los cangrejos, pájaros y perros salvajes también amenazan a las "tortoruginhas". Verlas nacer, excavar sus nidos para rescatar a las que no pudieron salir de la arena por si mismas y liberarlas al mar eran simplemente momentos mágicos. Ver a esas mamás cavar sus nidos, poner los huevos y camuflar el nido, era algo especial. Algunas de ellas caían dormidas después de tanto esfuerzo. Solo 1 de cada 1000 de esos bebés llegará a edad adulta (30 años). He aprendido un montón y ha sido totalmente un reto el esfuerzo físico y las pocas horas de sueño. Pero ha merecido la pena... esas chiquitinas me tenían loquita. Seamos más conscientes, más responsables, el plástico mata, mata nuestros océanos y toda la maravillosa vida que hay en ellos. Respetemos la naturaleza, es necesario esos macrohoteles que ni siquiera te dejan conocer la cultura del destino en el que te estás hospedando? He visto el mundo de forma distinta... cuando no tienes agua corriente ni electricidad ni un colchón durante 3 semanas, te das cuenta de la vida llena de excesos... y sabéis qué? Hay más magia en una noche durmiendo en una duna de una playa de serra negra (zona de isla de sal) después de la patrulla de 6 horas, que en cualquier cama king-size de cualquier complejo turístico de Santa María. 🌍🐢❤🚺 #capeverde #projectbiodiversity #bluavoluntariado #salisland #volunteer #voluntariado #great #growth #worthit #travel #life #betterworld #turtles #carettacaretta #loggerhead #savetheplanet #nature #adventurer #awesome #bestteam #thankyou #weneedachange

Sea Turtle Sunday: Though we have had a record breaking year for nesting at Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge and sea turtle populations are showing signs of recovery after almost 40 years of comprehensive conservation efforts, there are looming environmental issues that threaten this progress. Stop by the Folly Beach Public Library this Wednesday at 6PM to hear from Aquarium Conservation Programs Manager Kelly Thorvalson and Sarah Dawsey, Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge Manager. Both will discuss the rapid environmental changes affecting sea turtle populations and how we can all be part of the solution. Further event detail listed can be found on the Event page on our and Cape Romain's Facebook pages. #loggerhead #conservation #nationalwildliferefuge #seaturtlesunday #climatechange #seaturtles #protectwhatyoulove

Turtle rescue from #ghostnets . Great rescue with a happy end for those two #loggerhead #seaturtles that got entangled with ghost fishing nets and washed on the coast of Sal Ghost nets are fishing nets that were lost or discarded by fishing boats. Around 640.000 tonnes of those nets are now in the oceans. These fishing nets kill millions of seabirds and thousands of marine megafauna, including sea turtles, every year.

Did you know? The loggerhead sea turtle is the world's largest hard-shelled turtle, slightly larger at average and maximum mature weights than the green sea turtle and the Galapagos tortoise. It is also the world's second largest extant turtle after the leatherback sea turtle. 💙 🐢 💙 #redsea #mediterraneansea #ioniansea #loggerhead #loggerheadturtle #turtles #seaturtles #closeupshot #facetoface #headup #profilepic #animalphotos #wildlifephotos #akumal #marsaalam #maldives #hobbyphotography #hobbyphoto #hobbyphotographer #underwatersunchasers #underwaterpics #underwaterlife #bluesea #shutterbugs #travelbook #travelbloggers #ninjaturtles #schildkröte

Thankfully 🙏 because of all the environmental 🌎 work I do, I knew who to contact to save this precious turtle. ♥️ But other people might not know. There needs to be signage with a phone number to be able to call for #wildlife #rescue , like a hotline. . Thank you so much 🙌 Dave from @volunteercleanup for connecting me with @jenniferrock_305 who runs a non profit to protect sea turtles, who contacted Miami Dade Sea Turtles, which were the authorizes Organisation who picked up the baby 🐢 turtle. . It shouldn’t take a network of local environmentalist 🙋🏻 to save a sea turtle. Anyone should be able to do it with a simple phone call. . Just in case you find a sea turtle who needs help, please call: 305 310-3046. . #savetheturtles #floridaseaturtledefenders #cleanmiamibeach

Little Bubbas 🐢 • Some hatchling Q&A inspired by many curious people this summer in Kefalonia. • How do hatchlings know when to come out? 🐢 Loggerhead sea turtle nests tend to incubate for approximately 50-60 days (depending on sand colour and temperature). Once everyone is cooked and ready to go, hatchlings are able to detect temperature (i.e. cooler sand = nighttime) and vibrations from their neighbours so that they can coordinate their emergence at night or during the early hours of the morning (when it is safest). Sometimes vibrations can be sent through the sand during the day on beaches with high foot traffic ⛱ - causing daytime emergences. These are never ideal since the hot sand can quickly dehydrate hatchlings. If you ever find a hatchling during the daytime, keep it shaded and immediately get in touch with the local conservation group caring for those nests. • How do they know which way to go to sea? 🐢 Hatchlings rely on a couple of things to know which direction to go when they emerge from their nest. Typically, they detect the slope of the beach and the bright horizon created by the moon shining off the ocean. For this reason bright white lights from beach bars, hotels or street lamps, and beachgoers can be super disorienting! Please please please avoid nesting beaches at night (you might deter nesting females!)… but if you must be there… refrain from using any source of white light (e.g. cellphones, flashlights) 🔦 • Is it true that only 1 in 1000 hatchlings survive to adulthood? 🐢 Although this statistic is an estimate, it is likely very accurate. There are a number of challenges that hatchlings face from the time they emerge from the nest until they reach adulthood. Of course predation will always be a challenge for them, but in recent years, anthropogenic activity has further threatened their survival. Some major threats include the consumption of micro- and macro-plastics, as well as boat strikes and entanglements in fishing gear 🎣 Skip a straw, save a turtle! • #kefalonia #greece #loggerhead #loggerheadturtle #loggerheadseaturtle #seaturtles #seaturtle #hatchling #conservation #education #research #mediterranean #ionian

I was shocked to find three live hatchlings in a nest that had no signs of emergence and reached 70 days of incubation! 😳🐢🐢🐢 If we do not see signs of emergence from a nest, we wait until day 70 of it’s incubation to inventory the nest and see the success rate. I conducted the last inventory on a nest that had very little hope due to a foot of standing water during Hurricane Dorian and King Tides. Although this nest had a poor success rate with only 7 eggs hatching, 3 of those 7 hatchlings were alive when I dug down to complete the inventory. They were fairly weak but we got to give them a fighting chance and let them crawl to the ocean 🌊😊💪🏼 What an incredible season this has been! So thankful to be able to save the world one turtle at a time! 🐢🌎 . . . . . . . . . . . #turtlepatrol #saveourseas #conservation #dowhatyoucan #scstateparks #loggerhead #edisto #wildlife #southcarolina #ocean #seaturtles
