Still, the news is not all gloomy: a rising group of fishermen turned conservationists are working to save these species from local extinction. The fishermen have become scientists, documenting turtle mortalities and threats. Working together, researchers and fishermen have used creative methods to mitigate the local turtle decline.

USGS Study Finds Green Sea Turtles Are Utilizing Protected Habitat | Sustainable Products and Practices | Inquiry about the world | Scoop.it

According to a new US Geological Survey (USGS) study, nesting green sea turtles are benefiting from marine protected areas by using habitats found within their boundaries. This study is the first to track the federally protected turtles in Dry Tortugas National Park.

In Florida, the green sea turtles are listed as an endangered species, while in the rest of their range they are considered threatened. The habits of these turtles after their forays to nest on beaches in the Southeast US have long remained a mystery. Scientists didn’t know if the turtles made use of existing protected areas until now, and few details were available as to whether these areas were suited to supporting the green sea turtle’s survival.

Green turtles are swallowing plastic at twice the rate they did 25 years ago, according to a new study.

When will "humans" stop destroying nature ?
