As of July 24th we have officially broken our previous island nesting record for sea turtles of nests, and as I write this blog the island has a total of nests. We began the story in the nest with of your siblings eventually braving the first week of life against countless obstacles, from human light sources to hungry predators. We ended the story having finally reached the Sargasso Sea in the Atlantic, with only 20 of your siblings. Here you have started a chapter of your life that will take approximately 10 years to complete. This time of your life is the most unknown life stage of sea turtles to researchers, due to the challenges of studying such small creatures in such a large environment. Going back to our journey as a hatchling, we find ourselves adrift in the open ocean.
Everyone loves our Florida beaches — and that includes several species of endangered sea turtles. In fact, more endangered loggerhead sea turtles lay their eggs on Florida beaches than on just about any other beach in the world! I keep walking. Still nothing … at least it is a nice night to look at the stars. You can see so many more stars by using the night-vision goggles, and I tell myself that this is great exercise.
Surfing is strictly forbidden for turtles where Kai the little sea turtle lives, but book offers a message that you have to believe in yourself to meet challenges. The story might be a reflection of Yogis himself, a self-described.

On Tuesday morning, Toast, a rescued loggerhead sea turtle laid on a sunny Florida beach in degree temperatures waiting to start a second life in the wild. In an amazing contrast, the last time that the pound loggerhead had been on a beach was this past December, when it was found near death in degree temperatures on Cape Cod. When discovered, Toast was hypothermic and emaciated and had three major wounds on its shell, most likely inflicted from a propeller strike. After a long rehabilitation, Toast, along with 11 other sea turtles that also stranded late last autumn in Massachusetts, were driven down the East Coast to Little Talbot Island State Park near Jacksonville, Fla. Hopefully, these young turtles will be found in 10 to 15 years on and near nesting beaches and contribute to the recovery of these endangered and threatened sea turtle populations. This mass stranding of sea turtles happens annually over a two-month period and is unknown to happen anywhere else in the world on such a large scale. Juvenile sea turtles migrate up the East Coast each summer to feed on crabs around Cape Cod.
In the foamy chop of the warm-water discharge flowing into the San Gabriel River from a Long Beach power plant, a green sea turtle, wide as a manhole cover, materialized Friday just a few yards from shore. Little is known about the colony of at least six urban sea turtles. Are they part of a more complex sea-turtle migration dynamic than we ever imagined, or just lost wanderers? Those challenges include speedboats, water skiers, baited hooks, urban runoff, tons of garbage and harassment. On Friday, a green sea turtle that had been trapped for weeks in the whirlpools of an intake channel near the power plant a few yards east of the river was rescued by a team of divers hired by the DWP. The pound turtle was taken to the Aquarium of the Pacific, where veterinarians discovered a hook in its rear left flipper and a hook and a 3-inch gash in its front left flipper.
