Conservation Tybee Island Marine Center

Project volunteers protect the island’s nesting sea turtles and their hatchlings by monitoring sea turtle activity. During the nesting season, May 1st to October 31st, volunteers conduct daily dawn patrols along the beach. The patrol consists of walking the entire three miles of Tybee’s beaches and looking for evidence of sea turtle activity. Early in the season patrols are looking at the sand for sea turtle crawls which indicate that a sea turtle may have nested. A turtle will crawl up the beach and not nest, this is known as a false crawl. When a crawl is located, the Sea Turtle Project Coordinator verifies the presence of a nest by locating the eggs in the nest cavity. When a viable nest is confirmed, it is roped off and posted. The average length of incubation is 60 days, so observation of the nests becomes a part of the daily dawn patrol. As a nest’s hatching time approaches, volunteers are assigned to “Nest sit” during the night until that nest has hatched. When a nest hatches, the hatchling number is estimated by the number of tracks from the nest to the ocean. Five days after the hatch, the nests are excavated and egg shells are counted to determine the number of eggs laid, and of those laid, how many actually hatched. Nesting data is reported to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.

General Box Turtle Care

Box turtles tend to do well either outdoors, or in a large indoor enclosure. Some box turtles will obsessively try to get through the glass to get to the larger area that they can see on the other side. If you live within the natural range of any of the American box turtles, you should seriously consider an outdoor setup with sun, shade, a variety of weeds, and a small pond of water that is deep enough for swimming. Burrowing into the substrate and/or hiding under a hollow log or “Cave” of some sort makes box turtles feel secure. Box turtles enjoy wading and soaking in water, so provide some sort of pool. Box turtles kept indoors should be placed in water to soak every day. Box turtles may be clumsy swimmers, but many of them do seem to enjoy it if a deeper pond is available in an outdoor enclosure. Some box turtles will swim in an outdoor pond for over an hour almost every warm day. Make sure there is an easy exit so a swimming box turtle does not become exhaused. A warm water pond with an easy exit will be appreciated by many American box turtles and poses no significant danger of drowning. Sick turtles will usually not eat well, so if the turtle refuses to eat for more than two weeks, seek veterinary care. As an example of a good, healthy meal for a box turtle, try a salad of chopped grapes, dandelion, and grated carrot, and add a delightful topping of earthworm. Box turtles can get into unhealthy “Addictions” if fed the same food frequently. Box turtles do well at a wide range of temperatures.

Florida unveils new manatee, sea turtle decals to raise money to protect species

Florida wildlife officers on Tuesday introduced two new 2017 decals for sale to the public to raise money to protect the state’s manatees and sea turtles. The $5 decals can be purchased when registering or renewing registration on a vehicle or boat, or ordered through forms on the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission website. The stickers are designed to go on boats, kayaks or canoes, but can also be placed on vehicles, laptops or anything else. Past FWC decal designs available for sale date to 1992. “Decals generate funding for research, rescue and management efforts that help Florida’s manatees and sea turtles survive,” the FWC said in a news release. “For instance, when someone calls the FWC’s Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-FWCC to report an injured, entangled or sick manatee or sea turtle, FWC staff responds with efforts to rescue and rehabilitate the animal.”

Sea Turtle Conservancy :: Bermuda Turtle Project

Welcome to the official web site of the Bermuda Turtle Project, a research and education programme sponsored by the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo and the Sea Turtle Conservancy, formerly known as the Caribbean Conservation Corporation. Since shortly after colonization in the early 1600s, Bermuda has had an impressive record of striving to protect sea turtles that are now endangered or threatened worldwide. The islands that make up Bermuda are surrounded by lush seagrass beds, healthy coral reefs, and crystal-clear, unpolluted waters which provide perfect habitat for young green turtles and hawksbills. Few other places on earth can match the beauty of this remote oceanic island where turtles enjoy complete protection. Bermuda is one of a number of locations worldwide where post-pelagic, immature green turtles occur in the complete absence of adults. It may be the best site in the world where green turtles of this age can be studied in their natural habitat. Whereas most studies of sea turtles take place on nesting beaches, Bermuda provides scientists and resource managers with a unique opportunity to study the little understood juvenile stage of the green turtle. The research efforts of the Bermuda Turtle Project are focused on filling in the information gaps on green turtle biology so that successful protection may be given to these fascinating, vanishing animals. Please join our investigation into sea turtle life by learning more about the activities and discoveries of the Bermuda Turtle Project. The Bermuda Turtle Project is now taking applications for its 2017 Biology and Conservation of Marine Turtles International In-Water Course.

Meet the Oklahoma Man Who Rescued a Sea Turtle in Viral Video

A Southwest Oklahoma man found himself in the unexpected spotlight after his homemade video of a sea turtle rescue went viral. Steve Booker of Cyril, Oklahoma, which is just northeast of Lawton, was on his third vacation stay on the island of Cozumel in Mexico when he wished for one thing: to see a sea turtle up-close. On Wednesday, July 19, Steve awoke early to grab a time lapse of the Mexican sunrise and that’s when his wish came true. His rescue video, which has been viewed a combined 3 million times and counting, shows his discovery of what he thinks is a dead sea turtle on the shore of Cozumel. We caught up with Steve to chat about his experience rescuing the injured sea turtle. “When I saw the sea turtle at first, I thought it was deadit wasn’t moving, its neck was all stretched out, it was just totally motionless,” Steve said. Steve snapped a few still photos, then he saw the turtle blink and realized she’s not dead. “I knew immediately I had to jump in and help,” he said. That’s when Steve started recording video from his phone and captured the moving footage that will have you cheering for the beautiful marine animal’s survival along with him. Steve said he had no idea his video would gain as much attention as it has – it has since been broadcast on the Weather Channel and countless online publications. Steve added that it will be hard to match this experience of Cozumel waves, a beautiful sunrise and an opportunity to cheer a struggling sea creature back to shore. There are two types of sea turtles indigenous to Cozumel, Mexico; Loggerhead and Hawksbill. If you’re wondering how the little survivor was able to walk so well back to shore, sea turtles have callus-like scales that give them traction, even allowing them to walk the ocean floor. The sea turtle, which Steve has named ‘Lucky,’ has a good chance of survival and possibly reuniting with her rescuer next year when Steve and his wife return to Cozumel. You can learn more about Steve’s love of photography at stevebookerphotography.com.

Sea Turtle Rescue Season Begins

The temperature is falling, the leaves are changing, and the first cold-stunned sea turtle has washed up on Cape Cod. Hardy volunteers with our partners at Mass Audubon at Wellfleet Bay have started walking the beaches and recently came across this lively little green sea turtle. The new turtle arrived this morning and first underwent a physical exam, then x-rays and blood tests. After the exam and diagnostics, the turtle went for a swim where the rescue team assessed its activity level, ability to swim on its own, and behavior. Outwardly this turtle is alert and responsive, but our veterinarians are reviewing the x-rays and will start treatment on any underlying issues right away. As we prepared this post, our partners at Mass Audubon on Cape Cod brought us another green sea turtle. It seemed alert but slow-not surprising for a cold-stunned sea turtle. Results from the physical exam and additional tests are pending. So the 2016 turtle rescue season is well underway! Stay tuned for more pictures and updates from the rescue team as the season unfolds.

Adoption Information

Dedicated to the conservation and care of turtles and tortoises. Will your pet live indoors or outdoors? You’ll be expected to provide detailed information on the housing set-up you have available for your pet before adoption is approved. You must submit a completed application and once approved, submit photo of housing- A veterinarian reference is required, even if your vet doesn’t see turtles. You’ll sign an adoption contract agreeing to humane care, abidance to laws/ordinances, and agreeing not to sell, trade, release or give away the animal without written permission from MATTS,. MD residents CAN own baby turtles with a DNR Captive Reptile and Amphibian Permit. If you can’t care for your animal for some reason, it can be returned to MATTS. Adopting a turtle is a big decision that can be rewarding and fun with the right preparation and expectations. We offer an adoptions program licensed by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources to find new homes for displaced, unwanted, or unreleasable pet native turtles. Our adoption program started in 1999, and since 2006 we’ve placed over 100 turtles and tortoises a year! Turtles are given up for adoption for the same reasons as other pets. Often the turtle is an impulse purchase, given up when it grows too big and is too hard to care for. Turtles become victims of divorce, college, owners relocating, declining health/death of owners, marriage, and new babies. Some turtles are found in abandoned homes after tenant evictions.

Found only in Myanmar, the beautiful turtles were once common in the Ayeyarwady-Chindwin River system, but their numbers dropped steadily during the last half of the 20th century.

Officer Struggles To Rescue A Snapping Turtle

A Westmoreland, Tennessee, police officer came face-to-face with a fierce snapping turtle. The officer had a difficult time trying to figure out how to get him into the wooden crate. The camera catches him being super confused on how to even go about picking up the snapping turtle in a way that would keep his fingers safe. Residents give him advice and cheer him on in this seemingly impossible task. When he finally gets the courage to lift the snapping turtle, the animal jumps forward and snaps his mouth. That’s when the officer hops back and shows off his best karate moves. Not one to give up, the cop tries again with a couple of other tactics. He turns the wooden crate on its side and tries to push him. You can hear a woman suggest that he use his baton to scoop the snapping turtle in. “I’m not the turtle catcher!” The task isn’t seamless after that, but he does manage to get the animal in the crate! The whole ordeal was entertaining for everyone involved – including the police officer, who most definitely has the best story to tell his precinct! If this video made you laugh, please SHARE it with family and friends on Facebook!
