Today I learned so much about the rehabilitation of sea turtles and ways that I can help to keep them safe in their homes. It’s so sad to see them chased out of their natural homes & hurt by our carelessness. It was eye opening to see how even letting balloons fly off in the air can be detrimental to so many animals, especially sea turtles who mistake them for yummy jellyfish. I’m glad I had the opportunity to meet so many people who have dedicated their lives to making the oceans a lot safer for sea creatures and care enough to help the sea turtles return back home.

The incredible work of the sea turtle rescue and rehab facilities world wide. Respect and support!

april 4th, more turtle, morningside park

*THIS* is what turtles deserve. They should be Kings and Queens of their ponds, basking in the sun, not shoved in bags and dumped in trash cans. 

Please help our friends at LittleRESq help some shells that aren’t this lucky.

A Blanding’s turtle visited the Japanese Tea Garden on the west side of Fabyan Forest Preserve!

The garden is to the public from 1-4 p.m., mid-May through mid-October.

This moment was captured by Marie Lebrun.

He’s showing you what it looks like when Turtles and Tortoise dominate the earth #Turtpocalypse

Just had the most incredible experience and swam and played with our friend ‘frank’ at the beach next to our house. It was incredible to be able to swim and play with this guy for an hour and something I’ll never forget #attitudeforgratitude #robbirchallphotography #photography #iphone #lifeproof #followme #jurassicparkadventures #turtle #swim #water #ocean #lagoon @australia #australia #lordhoweisland #photooftheday
