Welcome to another episode of Natural World Facts! This fact file is all about Sea Turtles in the series Reptiles and Amphibians. - Brief Overview: Turtles are among the oldest groups of reptilians, having evolved millions of years ago. They can be found all over the world and inhabit almost every type of climate. There are seven different species of sea turtle, all of which vary in size and shape. The largest marine turtle is the leatherback. It can grow up to 7 feet (2 meters) long and weighs up to 2,000 lbs. (900 kilograms). The average lifespans of sea turtles can vary from 30 to 100 years, depending on the species. - Appearance: The appearance of marine turtles varies between species. The green sea turtle has a wide, smooth carapace which is brown or olive in colour, depending on its habitat. It is named after the greenish colour of its skin. The leatherback turtle has a rubbery, black shell while all other sea turtles have hard, bony shells. Ridges along its carapace help give it a more streamlined and hydrodynamic structure. Depending on the species, sea turtles colouring can range from olive-green, yellow, greenish-brown, reddish-brown, or black. All species of marine turtles have four flippers to help them swim, unlike tortoises or land turtles which have thick stubby legs for moving on land. - Diet: Sea turtles are omnivores, which means they eat both meat and vegetation, although their diet varies between species. Their diet consists of shrimp, seaweed, crabs, jellyfish, sponges, algae and mollusks. - Habitat: Sea turtles can be found in all the worlds oceans. The Kemp's Ridley turtle usually can be found in the Gulf of Mexico. The Flatback turtle inhabits the ocean around Australia, while the leatherback swims in every ocean on the planet. Green sea turtles and loggerhead turtles tend to stick to tropical and subtropical coastal waters. - Breeding: In the mating season, females and males migrate to the same beach where they were born, using the magnetic fields of the Earth as their guide. The migrations can be over 1,400 miles (2,253 kilometers) long. Sea turtles lay their eggs in clutches of 70 to 190 eggs. Females lay their clutches in holes they have dug in the beach. Once they have laid the eggs, they cover them in sand and return to the sea. Once the eggs hatch, the babies will dig their way out of their hole. Once free, the juveniles hurry to the safety of the sea to avoid being cooked by the sun or eaten by predators. - Status: The Kemp’s Ridley sea turtle is listed as critically endangered on the IUCN red list of threatened species, but the leatherback is listed as vulnerable. Some of the biggest threats to sea turtles include; oil spills, habitat loss (due to coastal development), accidental catching and poaching.

Sea Turtles – Fun Facts and Amazing Video - Watch amazing footage of Sea Turtles in their natural habitat and soak up some fun facts about these enchanting sea creatures! For over 250 million years, these beautiful creatures have glided through the warm, tropical waters of the world. These inspiring and intriguing creatures live their entire lives repeating an annual cycle, like other animals. But a Sea Turtles’ journey takes it on extraordinary adventures through long distances of vast ocean waters. Among the oldest creatures on earth, some of the 7 identified species of Sea Turtles travel up to 10,000 miles per year. The eating habits of Sea Turtles vary greatly between species; some Sea Turtles are strictly carnivores, others consume only vegetation, and some consume both. On the menu; a variety of aquatic life including fish, sponges, crustaceans, jellyfish, algae and sea grass. Interestingly, Green Sea Turtles are carnivores for the first 3 years of their lives, after which they become vegetarian. Though they spend most of their lives gliding through the warm ocean waters, Sea Turtles are good climbers, which comes in handy when they come ashore to lay their eggs on sandy beaches. Quick Sea Turtle Facts: -Sea Turtles can swim up to 35 miles per hour. -Some species of Sea Turtles, such as the carnivorous Leatherback, can weigh up to 2,000lbs. -Sea Turtles have good vision, excellent sense of smell, touch, and hear quite well. Due to nerve endings in their shells, Sea Turtles can feel this area of their bodies. Sea Turtles have played an important role in various human cultures for thousands of years, such as Chinese mythology dating around 2500 B.C., when a popular symbol for warding off evil spirits included a Sea Turtle entwined with a snake. Today we continue to celebrate this splendid creature in modern art, like this spectacular fountain in Philadelphia.

Here are 14 facts about sea turtles, a beautiful yet fascinating sea creature found in warm and temperate oceans. Video courtesy of Peet J van Eeden The silent world of sea turtles https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=baJgS-07F5o Used under creative commons license. Images used courtesy of Wikipedia Synopsis here are seven species of sea turtle that exist in the worlds oceans today. They are one of the worlds most ancient creatures and have exisited for about 110 million years. They are known for their shell or carapice which is stream-lined to help the turtle swim. The difference between sea turtles and other types of turtle is that sea turtles cannot pull their heads and legs into their shells. The colour of sea turtles vary from species to species and can be yellow, green, or black. They eat foods such as shrimp, sea sponges, snails, algae, moluscs, sea weed, and crabs. It is unknown what their population is because male sea turtles and young juvinile sea turtles do not go back to the shore once they hatch and they remain at sea. Sea turtles such as green sea turtles have the ability to stay underwater for up to five hours. This is despite their actual feeding time being less than five minutes. When they are underwater, the sea turtle slows their heart rate in order to preserve their oxygen underwater. This can slow up to 9 minutes per beat. They enjoy warm and temperate waters and they migrate long distances as far as 1400 miles between the areas they feed and where they nest. Not much is known about the behaviour of sea turtles as they spend most of their time at sea and much of the information gathered has been obtained from observing females and their hatchlings. When they nest females will dig out a nest in the ground an bury their eggs before they return to the sea and leave the eggs alone. When they hatch, the young sea turtles are completely on their own and without the aid of their mother. They will take as long as a week to dig themselves out of the nest in which they are buried. Once they have dug themselves out of the burrow, young sea turtles will start to move towards the ocean but will do this in the cover of night to avoid predators and launch out to the sea left to fend for themselves.

Endangered Ocean Life – Sea Turtles, Endangered Species What do Elk Horn Corals, Leatherback Sea Turtles, and Hawaiian Muck Seals all have in common? They are all protected under US Endangered Species Act. The Endangered Species Act of 1973 is one of the most effective conservation laws in the United States using science based management plan it has prevented the extinction of 99 percent of the species it protects. So how does it work? The US Congress put the US Fish and Wildlife service in charge of land and fresh water species and NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service in charge of marine species. These agencies can review the status of these species on their own or concerned citizens or groups can petition the agencies to list a species, after a review process a species can be listed as either Endangered or Threatened is necessary. Endangered means the species is in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant part of its range. Threatened means the species is likely to become endangered in the foreseeable future. If the species is listed as Endangered it is illegal to kill, harass, harm or capture it without special permission. Threatened species may be given many of the same protections, once the species is listed the agency in charge can designate the species Federally Protected Habitat, they will also develop a recovery plan to guide government and private efforts to help the species and get it out of danger. Today the Endangered Species Act protects over 2,140 listed species. The US Fish and Wildlife Service and NOAA continue to develop new technologies and management approaches to insure the Endangered Species Act stays effective and that endangered species populations can rebound and their habits can recover. A healthy ocean needs strong and sustainable populations of all marine species and the endangered species act has gone a long way to keeping it that way. Did you know that Sea Turtles have been living on Planet Earth since the time of the dinosaurs, around 110 million years. There are 7 different species of sea turtles, 6 of which Green, Hawksbill, Kemp’s Ridley, Leatherback, Loggerhead, and the Olive Ridley can be found throughout the ocean in both warm and cool waters, the 7th species the Flatback lives only in Australia. What’s amazing about sea turtles is after years of living and traveling the open ocean they return to the nesting grounds of where they were born to lay their eggs, in their voyage from nesting to feeding grounds some species will travel more than 1000 miles. But life is filled with danger for the sea turtle especially the hatchlings, on the beach birds, crabs, raccoons and even foxes will eat the hatchlings, and if the hatchlings make it to the ocean they are still tasty snacks for sea birds and fish. However the greatest threats for sea turtles are not from natural predators they are from humans, accidental catch in commercial fisheries or entanglement in marine debris are a serious threat to sea turtles as well as destruction of beach habitat , harvesting and poaching for meat and eggs and even boat strikes. But people aren’t just sitting by, nations are working together to protect and conserve sea turtles. In 1981 an international agreement made it illegal to trade all 7 species of sea turtle and their eggs or meat internationally, governments are figuring out ways to reduce bycatch such as requiring new designs in fishing gear and changes to fishing practices to make them less likely to capture turtles. Marine protected areas are being established in important sea turtle habitats. Conservation organizations are working with local communities to help change fishing practices as well as transition incomes away from turtle harvesting and toward turtle tourism . Other local efforts include working to reduce sources of marine debris, monitoring sea turtle nests and protecting them from poaching, and passing laws that prevent irresponsible development of known nesting beaches. A healthy ocean depends on sea turtles and sea turtles need our help.

In Malaysia there is an island known for more sea turtles than virtually anywhere on Earth. Jonathan visits this amazing ecosystem to learn about the life cycle of sea turtles. He is surprised to discover an amazingly complex and competitive environment. This is an HD upload of a previously released segment. ********************************************************************** If you like Jonathan Bird's Blue World, don't forget to subscribe! You can join us on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/BlueWorldTV Twitter https://twitter.com/BlueWorld_TV Instagram @blueworldtv Web: http://www.blueworldTV.com ********************************************************************** We head out towards the reefs of Sipadan island. This island is so small that you can walk all the way around it on the beach in an hour. Yet, it has a huge population of sea turtles. As the school of fish swims away, I spot my first sea turtle—a Green sea turtle swimming over the reef. It wasn’t hard because they’re everywhere. Some are swimming around, while others are napping on and in the reef. Sea turtles actually sleep underwater while holding their breath. A sea turtle can easily hold its breath over an hour! A few hundred feet away, I find a Hawksbill sea turtle munching on the reef. She is plucking out tasty sponges and invertebrates that hide in the coral, rather than eat the coral itself. It takes a tough stomach to digest this stuff. As we circle the island, I can see the tracks left in the sand by females that have climbed the beach to lay their eggs. It all starts when a male, identified by his long tail, catches up with a cooperative female and courts her. From the surface, I see the action and I prepare to film it. The mating has begun, and I quietly approach to film the action. Mating is not easy for the female sea turtle. She must swim—and rise to breathe—for both of them. The male's long tail holds the female and fertilizes the eggs, while claws on his front flippers give him the ability to grasp the female's shell. The commotion doesn't go unnoticed by other males in the area. They flock to the mating pair, which have drifted away from the reef. Eventually, no less than four additional male turtles arrive to challenge the suitor. They all try the same techniques and it is starting to wear him down. Meanwhile the female is near exhaustion. The male is only struggling to hold on….the female is struggling to survive. Hours later, the male has outlasted his rivals. He fertilizes the female's eggs and with luck his genes will continue on. As if her job weren't hard enough already, the female now faces another tremendous task--to lay the eggs—but it must wait until nightfall. After the sun sets, I head to the beach in total darkness. The females come ashore and lay their eggs in the sand. I have found a turtle hauling herself out of the water, painstakingly clawing her way up the beach to high ground. Although sea turtles live their entire lives in the ocean, they lay their eggs in a nest on the beach. After the sea turtle reaches an area well above the high tide line, she begins to throw sand around to create a pit. She's out of her element and vulnerable. The slightest sound or light would frighten her back into the water. She must stop frequently to catch her breath. Her crushing weight on land literally asphyxiates her. She begins to dig a hole about 3 feet deep with her rear flippers. The hole doesn't just protect the eggs from predators. The sex of the baby turtles is a function of the incubation temperature. A shallow nest baking in the sun will be too warm and all the babies will be female. A deep one will be too cold and the babies will all be male. Digging to the right depth insures a good mix of males and females. At last she begins to lay as many as 100 squishy eggs about the size of ping pong balls into the nest. In 2 months, these eggs will hatch and the baby turtles will emerge. After she has finished laying her eggs, she carefully fills in the hole. Then she cleverly disguises the exact location of the nest by flinging some sand around. After two hours of effort, she plods her way laboriously back to the sea, completely exhausted. Two months later, newly hatched sea turtles race to the sea. Each baby turtle must rush past a gauntlet of predators from land, sky and sea to reach the open ocean. Odds are, only one of these baby sea turtles will survive. On their journey, the sea turtles must fight their way through the surf, swim across the shallows and then make their way to the open ocean, away from predators on the reef. They won’t return to their home on the reef until they are large enough to be safe—about the size of a dinner plate. It’s a long and perilous journey but if this sea turtle survives, it may go on to live over a hundred years.

But they especially love warm shallow water. Male Sea Turtles spend their whole life in the sea. So they are great swimmers! Their flippers are perfectly designed to glide them through the water. Females are great swimmers also and only go on the land to lay eggs. They lay lots of eggs in sandy beach nests. When the cute little Turtles hatch they race to the water. Look at them go! What else can you notice about this Sea Turtle? That's right, Sea Turtles have hard shells for protection. Their shells very strong. Did you know? That a leatherback sea turtles grow so big...That they are heavy as a small car? Longer than a grown man! And can swim as deep as a submarine. Chomp Chomp Chomp. Sea Turtles eat everything from sea grass to jellyfish! But sometimes they confuse plastic bags with food.

Sea turtles are presumed to be one of the most majestic creatures on earth, as in legend, myth, and folklore. Here’s 10 fascinating facts about sea turtles you probably didn’t know. SUBSCRIBE for the latest videos: https://goo.gl/7xzjzR Don't forget to CHECK OUT our latest upload: https://goo.gl/LUB8Xw 10. They’re older than dirt It’s true. While the exact number has been debated, studies determine that turtles go as far back as the Mesozoic age, better known as the age of the dinosaurs. Fossils dating 260 million years suggest this turtle-like specie of reptile crawled the earth, with the first marine turtle dating back 220 million years. This evolutionary phenomenon dubs turtles one of the oldest creatures on earth, around the same age as the dinosaurs, who became extinct about 65 million years ago. 9. Plus size turtles need love too A species known as the leatherback sea turtle can grow as large as six feet, and weigh in at about 550 to 2000 pounds. Also, like their size sea turtles can grow really, really old in age. 8. Sea turtles love going on vacation As the name suggests, these tedious travelers are the only specie of turtle that lack a hard shell, with a soft layer resembling a leathery texture; seemingly, the lighter load makes for easier movement. Scientists track leatherbacks by way of satellite and have tracked their progress over hundreds and even thousands of miles across the deep blue sea. 7. They could outswim Michael Phelps The devious divers slow their heart rate by up to nine minutes—a crafty way of conserving oxygen. Of course, this feat is highly dependent on their level of aquatic activity at the time. If sleeping, a sea turtle can survive under water for four to seven hours; during times of hibernation in colder waters, they can hold their breath for up to ten. 6. Home is where the heart is Sea turtles have an innate connection to their natal beaches. So, when it comes time to lay their eggs, females return to the same birthing place as generations before. Turtle shells and human fingernails are one in the same. An interesting point that most don’t know, is that unlike land turtles, a sea turtle lacks the ability to hide their head inside their shells. Moreover, the shell is made up of two parts—the upper part being the carapace (with a flatter shape to help them swim), and the bottom known as the plastron. This entire structural skeleton is made up of keratin, the same fibrous substance found in fingernails, and the most abundant form of protein on earth. The whole shell is fused together by 60 bones, and if one were to rip the turtle from its homey habitat, they would rip the poor animal’s body apart. 4. Some like it hot If the egg incubates at colder temperatures such as 82 Fahrenheit, the gender is subsequently male. If temperatures are over 88—the hatchling will be female. Interestingly enough, any number between the aforementioned can be a mix of either. What’s more, maternal sea turtles don’t lay on their eggs, so any form of temperature to permeate the nest is from sand alone. On average only one in one thousand hatchlings survive. 3. Turtles have feelings, too Scientists link tears to the birthing process because the behavior was only observed when the females came ashore, yet studies have shown they cry in the sea as well. Sea turtles must run certain glands in order to maintain the correct balance of salt in their bodies, therefore, research has associated crying with egg laying when really the production of tears help flush salt and sand from their eyes. Still, if it looks like these sweet sea creatures are all lone shedding tears, it’s… 2. Probably because They’re endangered Several factors impede the survival of sea turtles, the most common being entanglement by fishing nets, habitat loss due to tourism, and the consumption of their eggs and flesh as food. Poaching and exploitation results in the slaughtering of their shells and skin; in addition, sea turtles suffer from climate change which has a severe effect on their nesting sites. Lastly, waste—such as in the form of plastic bags and bottles, are an attractive food source and quickly lead to suffocation and death. 1. They’ve got their own built-in GPS system Sea turtles possess an innate ability to determine their exact location on earth as well as the direction they need to be. This skill allows the ocean dwellers to locate favorable feeding grounds as well as their natal birthing grounds. Scientists have determined that sea turtles are very sensitive to the earth’s magnetic field, and much like a compass that relays direction, sea turtles can do just that. In addition, through said magnetic force, the pull allows them positional info, much like that of a GPS system.

This is the original video! Filmed by Christine Figgener, marine biologist at Texas A&M University. ***WARNING: Graphic Content & Inappropiate/ Strong Language!*** This video shows graphically why plastic waste is detrimental to marine life, especially single-use plastics (such as straws, which are one of the most redundant items). This turtle suffers from an item that is human-made and used by most of us frequently. The research team around Christine Figgener (Texas A&M University) found a male Olive Ridley sea turtle during an in-water research trip in Costa Rica. He had a 10-12 cm PLASTIC STRAW lodged in his nostril and they removed it. SAY "NO" TO PLASTIC STRAWS, AND ANY KIND OF ONE-TIME USE PLASTIC ITEMS!

OUR STORY: My research team found a male Olive Ridley sea turtle during an in-water research trip in Costa Rica. He had a 10-12 cm PLASTIC STRAW lodged in his nostril. After initially thinking that we are looking at a parasitic worm, and trying to remove it to identify it, we cut a small piece off to investigate further and finally identified what we were REALLY looking at. After a short debate about what we should do we removed it with the plier of a swiss army knife which was the only tool available on our small boat (not intended for overnight stays), since we were on the ocean, in a developing country, a few hours away from the coast and several hours away from any vet (probably days from any vet specialised in reptiles, not to mention sea turtles) and x-ray machines. Plus, we would have incurred a penalty (up to time in jail) on ourselves by removing the turtle since that is beyond our research permits. He did very obviously not enjoy the procedure very much, but we hope that he is now able to breath more freely. The blood from the shoulder is from a 6mm skin biopsy we took previously to this event for a genetic study (part of our permitted research), which usually doesn't bleed much, but which started bleeding while restraining the turtle. We disinfected the air passageway with iodine and kept the turtle for observation before releasing him back into the wild. The bleeding stopped pretty much immediately after the removal of the straw, and when we released him, he swam happily away. The turtle very likely swallowed the straw while ingesting other food items and then either expelled the straw together with the redundant sea water through her nostrils, or regurgitated the straw and it ended up in the wrong passageway. The nasal cavity of sea turtles is connected directly to the palate (roof of the mouth) by a long nasopharyngeal duct.

What Do Sea Turtles Eat: Foods That Sea Turtles Eat in the Wild http://what-do-animals-eat.com/what-do-turtles-eat/ Have you ever wonder what foods do sea turtles enjoy in their natural environment? For the next 2 minutes we will be talking about what sea turtles eat. This video will discuss 5 of the 7 major sea turtle species of the world. The type of food that sea turtles eat depends greatly on the type of turtle and its natural habitat and their capacity to chew on some specific types of marine life What do Hawksbill Turtles Eat? Hawksbill turtles have jaws that look similar to a hawk's beak. This narrow and curved design helps the turtle get food from hard to reach crevices. Hawksbill turtles feed off of sponges, shrimp and squid found around coral reefs. Hawksbill turtles are often called spongivores, because their diets consist of soft, spongy sea animals. What do Leatherback Sea Turtles Eat? Leatherback turtles have jaws that are similar to scissors. These turtles use their jaws to spear jellyfish and other soft-shelled animals. Leatherbacks must stick to a soft diet to prevent their jaws from being damaged. Because of their jellylike diet, leatherbacks are often called gelatinivores. What do Green sea turtles eat? Green sea turtles have jaws with jagged edges that cut through sea grasses, algae and seaweed. Green sea turtles are the only adult turtles that are herbivores, or exclusive plant eaters. What do Loggerhead turtles Eat? Loggerhead turtles use their powerful jaws to crush crab, jellyfish, mollusks and shrimp. As adults, loggerheads prefer an all meat diet. What do Flatback sea turtles? Flatback sea turtles are omnivores that eat plants and animals including seaweed, sea cucumbers, crab, cuttlefish, shrimp and soft corals. Useful keywords: What do Sea Turtles Eat, What do Hawksbill Turtles Eat, What do Leatherback Sea Turtles Eat, What do Green sea turtles eat, What do Loggerhead turtles Eat, What do Flatback sea turtles, Hawksbill Turtles, Leatherback Sea Turtles, Green sea turtles, Loggerhead turtles, Flatback sea turtles #WhatdoSeaTurtlesEat #WhatdoHawksbillTurtlesEat #WhatdoLeatherbackSeaTurtlesEat #WhatdoGreenseaturtleseat #WhatdoLoggerheadturtlesEat #WhatdoFlatbackseaturtles #HawksbillTurtles #LeatherbackSeaTurtles #Greenseaturtles #Loggerheadturtles #Flatbackseaturtles -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Ladybugs Pest Control: How to Get Rid of Ladybugs!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gT-NEQvd81o -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Did you know that sea turtles have been living on planet Earth since the time of the dinosaurs? Around 110 million years. There are seven different species of sea turtles, six of which - green, hawksbill, Kemp's ridley, leatherback, loggerhead, and the olive ridley - can be found throughout the ocean in both warm and cool waters. The seventh species, the flatback, lives only in Australia. What's amazing about sea turtles is that after years traveling the open ocean they return to the nesting grounds where they were born to lay their eggs. In their voyage from nesting to feeding grounds -- some species will travel more than 1,000 miles. But life is filled with danger for a sea turtle, especially the hatchlings. On the beach, birds, crabs, raccoons, even foxes will eat hatchlings. And if hatchlings make it to the ocean, they are still tasty snacks for seabirds and fish. However, the greatest threats to sea turtles aren't from natural predators; they are from humans. Accidental catch in commercial fisheries or entanglement in marine debris are serious threats to sea turtles, as well as destruction of beach habitat, harvesting or poaching for meat and eggs, and even boat strikes. But people aren't just sitting by, nations are working together to protect and conserve sea turtles. In 1981, an international agreement made it illegal to trade all seven species of sea turtles and their eggs, shells, or meat internationally. Governments are figuring out ways to reduce bycatch such as requiring new designs of fishing gear and changes to fishing practices to make them less likely to capture turtles. And, marine protected areas are being established in important sea turtle habitats. Conservation organizations are working with local communities to help change fishing practices as well as transition incomes away from turtle harvesting and toward turtle tourism. Other local efforts include: working to reduce sources of marine debris, monitoring sea turtle nests to protect them from poaching, and passing laws that prevent irresponsible development on known nesting beaches. A healthy ocean depends on sea turtles. And sea turtles need our help.

Sea turtles are making a comeback. Due to factors such as poaching, habitat destruction, fishing, and climate change, nearly all sea turtle species are endangered. But data recently collected at 299 nesting sites shows 32 percent of those population increased, while only 12 percent decreased. The rest of the populations measured either stayed steady or remained unclear, due to insufficient data. Researchers attribute some of the reversal to conservation efforts, like fishing regulations and protected beach zones. But sea turtles still face environmental challenges. Rising sand temperatures have been shown to skew the gender balance of eggs, impacting fertility rates. For now, at least, this seaweed-eating species has a bit of a brighter future.

The Green Turtle (Chelonia mydas) and the Olive Ridley (Lepidochelys olivacea) are two of the seven species of sea turtles in the world that nest at the beaches of Pakistan every year. For over a 100 million years of the earth's history, sea turtles have made the oceans their home. They are a species so ancient they have seen the dinosaurs evolve and go extinct. The sandy beaches of Sindh and Baluchistan are important nesting sites for sea turtles. Spending most of their lives in the oceans, adult turtles return to the beach where they were born to lay their eggs. After an incubation period of about two months the youngsters hatch and scramble towards the water. Only one in a thousand survive to adulthood. The main threats to their survival are pollution, loss of nesting and foraging habitats, poaching, predation, being hit by boats and getting caught in fishing nets. The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species has classified six of the seven sea turtle species in the world as endangered or critically endangered and forbids their exploitation by international law. In order to celebrate sea turtles and to promote conservation efforts, 2006 was declared as the Year of the Turtle in the Indian Ocean and South-East Asian Region. In 2008, Sea Turtles was nominated for a 22nd Genesis Award in the Brigitte Bardot International category for "its excellent depiction of the perils facing the endangered sea turtles of Pakistan and the efforts being made to save them". The Genesis Awards are held each year by the Humane Society of the United States to recognize "television, film, music, and other special categories for raising awareness of animal topics".

Sadly human interference in their habitat like shrimp trolling ships are to blame for major decline in the species numbers. The numerous spikes in the throat help hold food in. A loggerhead turtle will intake a large volume of seawater in the process of eating and these spikes allow the water to exit but keeps the food inside This loggerhead turtle washed up on the New England coast deceased. It was a victim of cold stunning, a term used to describe turtles that die of essentially freezing to death due to a sharp change in temperature not allowing the turtle to escape to warmer waters.
