Can’t understate the how amazing it is to watch a wild sea turtle lift its head and take breath then carry on enchanting the ocean.

Olive ridley turtles rush to the sea as they are released by villagers from the Pawikan Conservation Center in Nagbalayong, Morong, Bataan. Soon, these baby turtles will return to where they are hatched as it is their nature. That is, if they survive the rough seas and poaching. The survival rate is only 1.8 percent. #oliveridley #turtle #turtles #pawikanconservationcenter #everydayphilippines #squaresthelimit #everydayasia #photojournalismPH #instagramhub #everydayclimatechange

Green Turtle Rescuers

Green sea turtles have been showing up on south Texas beaches in larger
numbers than ever. Dr. Donna Shaver, her team, and a great network of
people have been busier than usual rescuing stuck or stranded turtles
that need a little help getting to safety.

Curious fact: The way loggerhead turtles feed on their hard-shelled prey recycles important nutrients and keeps ocean floor sediments in balance. Loggerhead turtles carry colonies of small plants and animals on their shells which serve as important habitat themselves. As many as 100 species of animals and plants have been recorded living on one single loggerhead turtle.

Be free, little one! 

During a research expedition to document shipwrecks off North Carolina in 2017, researchers from Monitor National Marine Sanctuary got to release two rehabilitated sea turtles. This cutie is Puck, a juvenile hawksbill turtle rehabilitated by the North Carolina Sea Turtle Project. The researchers were excited to shellebrate his return to the wild!
