Why Are Sea Turtles Becoming Extinct? Global Warming? Nonsense!

Sorry Al. Here is the reason:

  1. When we lived in Florida (Indialantic) we had sea turtles by the hundreds. Everyone was so protective of them. No lights during the egg laying time. We guarded their eggs from curious eyes. At hatching time, we made sure the babies went to the ocean and not to the land. We all had bumper stickers announcing our allegiance to sea turtles. Why can't everyone respect nature?
    Thanks for the neat reminder.

  2. Is it just Costa Rica? I read not too long ago a Japanese traveler getting caught w/baby sea turtles in his suitcase....All for the price of money... There's a reason for all sea and wild life... to keep the equilibrium of the land and water...this bothers me... why is it always the innocent and the ones who can't fight back..

  3. Manzi: We still protect them here in Florida. However, I can't find the G-rated words to answer your question.

    Suze: I love it also. Manzi always cuts through the deep stuff.

    KBF: You are correct. It is all over the world. When Mother Nature strikes back, we call it a disaster.

  4. KBF: Me too. I relocate spiders in my house and don't step on ants. How do you think I feel?

  5. @JJ: What enrages me is that this doesn't have to be done at all... what does that say about man??? is desperation for money that bad? or is it ignorance being passed down? Disrespect is a light word for this... Makes me wonder if the poachers would sell their children?

  6. As you know, we just returned from Jekyll Island where for years environmental groups have been monitoring sea turtles. In 2007, the Georgia Sea Turtle Center opened on the island. This is a large complex, and is fascinating to visit. Anyone who wants info about what is being done to protect sea turtles should visit http://www.seaturtle.org/nestdb/

    While walking the dogs along the beach one morning, Rod came across several baby sea turtles who did not make it to the surf. The attrition rate is very high, even if they do make it to the ocean.

  8. Spiders are a good thing to have around, just as long as you don't get bit by one in your sleep! But back to turtles....where we live more have been coming around then ever before. In Michigan growing up we saw them all the time, but they seem to have been in hiding lately until now.....no extinction here!..or thieves here yet!

  9. KBF: You are right on the money. It is not only turtle eggs. They poach elephant tusks, tiger skins, etc. It is greed and ignorance.

    Judie: Understood. Down South, turtle eggs are sacred, buy even with the utmost care, many are lost. Nature does not need help with the attrition rate.

    Ames: It is poaching, and it is worse than a shame. It is criminal.

    Karen: I am a Michigan fan. I spent a great deal of time camping and hiking there, enjoying the Great Lakes, and discovering the UP. I love Michigan.

  10. Nice post to remember us of another disgusting practice. I agree with Kaley's, it is all about ignorance and disrespect! And what a bad example we age giving our children.

  11. FanaticoUm: What we are doing to our children is sinful.

  12. I relocate spiders and tell my children not to step on ants too. I am trying to teach them "respect for life." I wish more people developed that respect. People should be grateful when it is shown to them, when people who could hurt them don't. If only this were applied to leaving nature alone and letting it flourish on its own.

  14. How sad are we.... the human race? I am saddened to see & read what is happening to these turtles.. this just simply should not be happening. The human race has caused sooooooo much damage to this planet & to the other creatures that co-habitate this planet with us. This planet is not only for us, so why on earth do we behave like it is. We just take, take, take & keep on taking. Animal life on this planet only takes what it needs & no more. Animals only kill to survive. We humans on the other hand kill for greed, to make profit or for other unsubstantiated reasons like to make pills to increase labido, creams and lotions to keep us young or increase fertility. It's absurd & it's sad. It's so very sad!!

    I tried to post this comment from my Google ID but for some reason it would not let me... gremlins in the system I think... so I had to do it as anonymous... cheers Katherine (your friend from the Land of Oz)

  15. Why can't humans get along with other animals?

    Sigh...too bad roaches won't ever be extinct!!

  16. Miriam: I figured you would be exactly like that. It makes me happy there are others.

    KB: Good for you!

    Katherine: I could have guessed it was you. Why couldn't the whole world think like that?

    A-M: We have honed a world where only roaches and rats are safe, and some of the rats walk erect.
