... last pic for ... I forgot to copy some pics at work as this doesn't have a pic of a turtle but we were waiting for turtles 😂... it's a 8-10 hr boat ride (29' catamaran style boat) from pago pago to muliava ... once there we set up camp before it gets dark ... rake any existing turtle tracks so that we'll know when the mama crawls ashore ... and prep for the first night of work ... we start work at dusk then go till sunrise ... tagging each nester as they come ashore and hopefully count their eggs as they lay ... we crawl over rubble under trees and bushes ... trying to avoid the sleeping birds and rising tide ... here we're waiting to start the next walk on the hour ... we rest and enjoy the stars ... it's so clear and you see so many constellations 🌌... sometimes the moonlight is really bright but most times we need our headlamps ... it's so awesome ... can't wait for thanksgiving because we leave right after that ...

Skip the plastic straw save a 🐢 for National bc sadly, ALL U.S. sea turtles are on the Endangered Species Act 😔 🌎 If plastic continues to infect our oceans, its estimated that by 2050, every seabird will have plastic in its stomach and we'll have more plastic in our ocean than 🐠🐟 🌎 Americans use 500 MILLION plastic straws A DAY. Straws are on the top 10 list of marine debris items collected during the International Coastal cleanup. Let's do our part💚 🙏🏼Thanks for the knowledge

Wow, flew by, and next it's ! June is pretty much ocean celebration month--I hope you all are enjoying the beach, the water, or the sunshine wherever you are. 💙🌊☀️ Since today is , here are a few simple things you can do to help make life a little safer for your local sea turtle friend: 1. Ditch the plastic straw! They are one of the most common plastic items found on beaches and are dangerous for marine animals. While you are at it try to see how much plastic you can avoid by using glass, paper, and reusable items. 2. If you live near nesting beaches, make sure you turn off bright outdoor lights that disorient hatchlings, and remove furniture at night that turtles could get trapped in 3. Sign petitions to help protect turtles from being caught as bycatch ( has one on their website) and stick to eating seafood that has a green rating from to help reduce harmful fishing practices. 4. Spread the word--and the love--for sea turtles and the ocean! Without it, we wouldn't exist. 💗🌊💗

To celebrate sea turtle week, here are some turtley (!) awesome works in progress. Top is a leatherback turtle, the largest turtle species and one of the largest reptiles in the world. Left is a green turtle, which are unique among sea turtles in that they only eat plants which is thought to give them their greenish colour and name. Right is a hawkbill turtle whose beak-like mouth gives them their name. All species of sea turtle are listed under the Endangered Species Act. These little guys are ready for painting and will then be listed on my Etsy, along with the 3 other species of sea turtles.

This little green turtle (Chelonia mydas) would like to wish you a Happy World Sea Turtle Week! Remember, even after week is over, you can take steps to prevent the unnecessary harm to s worldwide. 💦🐢 Don't buy any turtle or tortoiseshell products 💦🐢 Use reusable grocery bags and recycle any plastic bags properly (floating discarded plastic bags are often ingested by sea turtles who mistake them for jellyfish and subsequently choke to death) 🛍🛒 💦🐢 Don't release balloons for any reason (weddings, sports celebrations, careless children) 🚫🎈 💦🐢 Support legislation and regulations that limit nighttime light pollution in coastal areas where sea turtles nest. The light can confuse baby sea turtles who may head toward the lights rather than the ocean after hatching. Even little steps like these can have a big impact! seaturtle bags

Happy ! From metal tags to GoPro cameras to solar-powered satellite tags, there are many ways to track a sea turtle. This information can help scientists understand where sea turtles live, eat, and reproduce, as well as identify potential conflicts with human activities like fishing and marine transportation. Understanding these dynamics is essential to managing and conserving sea turtle species. Photo credit: USGS turtle turtle s photography

Week A close up of 'Rocket Girl,' a hawksbill sea turtle in the nearshore waters of Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii. She was fitted with a GPS-linked satellite tag in October 2015 which allows and our research partners to track her movements. The data gathered with the tag helps scientists understand more about how this small population of endangered hawksbill turtles use habitat and where they go during daytime foraging dives. This summer, the research team will recapture Rocket Girl and remove her tag. Check out more snapshots of sea turtle science here - bit.ly/2slvGWk Link in bio.

#2016 ... it's not pink but close enough ... 😉... we're there to monitor the nesting females but sometimes we get lucky and see something crawl past us ... or sometimes see a crab carrying it away ... 😳... can't seem to ever find the nest (lots of trees and bushes) but they can find the water by heading toward the moonlit ocean ... we use the red light to help our eyes adjust to low light and also it doesn't disturb the turtles as much ... we still try to just use just the moonlight if possible ...

Unlike all other species of sea turtle, leatherbacks lack a hard bony shell. Instead, their shell is about 1.5 inches thick and consists of leathery connective tissue overlaying loosely interlocking bones. This one was spotted in National Marine Sanctuary.

I laid an egg on the beach in honor of week ! JK, but I'm still excited to celebrate sea turtles. Some species, like the olive Ridley, will come to shore on their nesting beach by the thousands once a year to all lay their eggs on the same few nights! It's an amazing event, and one that's becoming rarer as we lose more beaches to development and sea level rise. I hope humans are able to protect the beaches that remain. 💗🐢🌊💗 . . #100daysofblue wednesday

Don't forget to thank a during 💦🐢 Sponges are a food source for many sea turtles and Hawksbill sea turtles are obligate spongivores, which means they must feed on sponges. Many sponges, like this Mycale laxissima, have chemicals in their bodies that discourage predators from eating them. But not all sponges invest energy into chemical defense, and sea turtles can happily chomp away at those sponges.
