Turtle Rescue News for March 30 2017

Difference and Comparison

Turtles live some or most of the time in the water, while tortoises live on land. A turtle has a flat, streamlined shell and limbs that are quite similar to a tortoise’s, but the turtle’s feet are webbed and have long claws which provide a good grip upon floating logs and help the reptile climb onto riverbanks. Some turtles might even have flippers, as is the case for the pig-nosed turtle. As turtles generally prefer to live in water, the shell of a turtle is flat and streamlined to aid in swimming and diving, while the shell of a tortoise, which lives on land, is rather large and dome-shaped to provide protection from predators. In contrast, the common lifespan of a turtle is about 20-40 years, while sea turtles average 60 to 70 years, with about 40 to 50 years of that required to reach maturity.

A Turtle Rescue Children’s Book

A sea turtle rescue book with pictures for children. Having met a real rescue turtle at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center, a sea turtle hospital in Juno Beach, Florida, the author has written a picture book and authored any number of websites devoted to introducing children to his new finned friend. Eartha, the loggerhead sea turtle the author met, was actually suffering from anemia. Eartha is a happy young turtle with many undersea friends, until one day she finds herself tangled in just some of the human detritus dotting the floor of her ocean home. Supplementing The Tale of Eartha the Sea Turtle, Bodenstein’s websites treat kids to the continuing adventures of Eartha – as the author imagines them – in addition to pictures of the real Eartha.

Sea Turtle rescue center, outside of Acapulco?? – Acapulco …

Hello! I found very small tid bits of information online in regards to something about a “Sea Turtle Rescue Center”, outside the city of Acapulco about 20 miles?

Female sea turtles must come ashore to build nests and lay their eggs. A female deposits 50 to 200 Ping Pong ball shaped-eggs into the egg cavity. A female may deposit as many as 50 to 200 Ping Pong ball-shaped eggs into the egg cavity that she digs in the sand. Burying the eggs serves three purposes: it helps protect the eggs from surface predators; it helps keep the soft, porous shells moist, thus protecting them from drying out; and it helps the eggs maintain proper temperature. Experts can identify the species of turtle by the type of mound left by the nesting female and by her flipper tracks in the sand.

Residents rescue green turtle

Plomer Road residents combine to save a green turtle in a two hour operation. More than two hours later the duo, along with fellow Plomer Road residents and a police escort, helped guide an adult green turtle back to the relative safety of the ocean. National Parks and Wildlife Service’s area manager Steve Atkins said the visitor was probably a green turtle. Anatomically, a few characteristics distinguish the green turtle from the other members of its family. Unlike the closely related hawksbill turtle, the green turtle’s snout is very short and its beak is unhooked.

Red Eared Slider Rescue Efforts

Your local red eared slider rescue is without a doubt the very best place to get a slider if you want one. Rescues are necessary because of the simple fact that many people that buy a red eared slider have no idea what they are in for. Though pet stores do a much better job than they used to, many still do not adequately describe to future slider owners what it takes to keep one of these turtles in their home. If you are interested, give your local red eared slider rescue a call or visit and see what they have. By patronizing one of these rescues, you are doing your part to make the life of a neglected turtle better and putting a dent in the red eared slider pet trade.

Jet skiers rescue sea turtle tangled in balloon string

March 24 – A pair of jet skiers rescued a sea turtle they spotted tangled in a balloon string off the coast of California. Video shared to YouTube channel Wild Spirit Nature Channel showed videographers Angel Hernandez and Bryce Trevett riding their jet skis and filming whales when they spotted the loggerhead sea turtle struggling to break free from the balloon string. The two men quickly jumped into the water and used a knife to cut the distressed turtle free. The pair released the sea turtle, which they named “Crash” after the character form the Disney film Finding Nemo, back into the wild. Hernandez and Trevett said they often see balloons in the ocean and hoped the video will encourage people to properly dispose of balloons and other trash to prevent causing harm to wildlife.

To The Rescue, a ninja turtles fanfic

“What if you overdosed?” He pressed two fingers to Raph’s carotid artery to check his pulse again, covering Raph’s forehead with his other hand at the same time to check his temperature. “You don’t need to, Raph.” He plucked himself from Raph’s embrace and threaded one arm across the back of his brother’s shell, holding Raph’s arm across his shoulders with his other hand. “I…don’t think so.” Raph twined his arms around Leo’s neck and rested his head against his brother’s plastron, closing his eyes sleepily. Raph made a small sound, and Leo automatically yanked away, startled. Leo shook his head and pulled Raph’s hands away, drawing his brother into his arms almost forcefully, not a warm cuddle, but a fierce, protective embrace.

Marine Mammal & Sea Turtle Rescue Center

The BP Command Center attempted to shut our efforts down but thanks to the persistence of our founders, and the kind assistance from the folks at the Audubon Nature Institute in New Orleans, we finally delivered the supplies. The Center runs a complete Marine Mammal & Sea Turtle Rescue Center which currently has over 140 sea turtles in their care. The center has mainly Kemps Ridley Sea Turtles which are classified as Critically Endangered with an estimated 3,000 left in the wild. They also had a few Green Sea Turtles, some Hawksbills Sea Turtles, and a few Loggerhead Sea Turtles. Loggerhead Sea Turtle who was rescued with the help of Jeff Corwin during his recent visit.

Florida Box Turtle

Florida Box turtles need both heat and UVB lighting to maintain proper health. Hatchling Florida Box Turtles start out as mostly carnivorous but slowly change over to a more omnivorous diet as they grow to adulthood. Rep Cal Box turtle food, Mazuri Tortoise and aquatic food, Reptomin, and Nutrafin gammarus can all be used. Whenever a new turtle is added to an existing community it should first be quarantined at least 60 days, preferably at least 90 days to make sure it is not ill and cannot infect your existing turtles. Florida Box Turtles make interesting and rewarding pets.

Sea Turtle Rescue at the Casa Magna

Over the pit, right at my eye level, an enormous sea turtle is heeding the strongest call of nature and laying dozens of eggs, which drop down into the pit like tough, rubbery ping pong balls, bouncing a little before coming to rest on top of their future brothers and sisters. Behind us hovers the biologist from Casa Magna, the gorgeous resort whose turtle rescue efforts amount to over 60,000 eggs in 2012, nearly 35% of the sea turtle rescue in Puerto Vallarta. At that time, they will be brought to the beach at sunset and handed out to all the Casa Magna guests gathering to take a miniscule part in this rescue effort, who will encourage their tiny turtles back into the sea, sending them off with prayers and good wishes for survival. Just 1-2% of all the sea turtles will make it back to the beach in a few years to lay their own eggs. The sea turtle rescue takes place from June through December; visit Casa Magna January through May and you can enjoy spectacular whale watching instead.Please comment below and enjoy these related articles.
