Throwback to June when we were able to share Turtle Patrol with a youth camp put on by the Marco Island Police & Fire depts. The kids got to see a new loggerhead crawl and freshly laid eggs. We had an impromptu Q&A right there and – to be honest – I think the officers & firefighters were more excited than the children! It was great seeing our local authorities reinforce the importance of obeying the laws protecting these animals. Remember: turn out your lights, fill in holes on the beach and flatten sandcastles during hatching season to help these little buggers make it safely to the water!

Endangered baby sea turtles get a second chance
Efforts to rehabilitate endangered loggerhead sea turtles make for a heartwarming story on Endangered Species Day. The Israel Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center works around the
clock to ensure these little guys can make the journey from nest to sea.
