Sea Turtle with Straw up its Nostril - "NO" TO PLASTIC STRAWS
 
08:07
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! If you would like to support our research and conservation efforts in Costa Rica, please think about donating to our GoFundMe Campaign http://gofundme.com/wuhvd6zj UPDATES The Plastic Pollution Coalition just launched their "No Straw" Campaign in collaboration with us.

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.

12 MOST Dangerous Turtles Ever
 
10:13
As if there wasn't enough to be afraid of in the world already--here are the world's most DANGEROUS turtles! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr #6 Carbonemys With a shell measuring nearly 6 feet wide, this creature would have been one of the largest turtles ever. Its fossils have been recovered in Colombia, where it lived some 60 million years ago during the Mid to Late Paleocene. Although smaller than Archelon and Stupendemys, this had to be a tough critters tough, given that it co-existed with the enormous snake Titanoboa, as well as large crocodiles. Experts think the creature had tremendously powerful jaws that could have clamped down on almost any type of prey … which included crocs and mollusks. The animal could have survived by taking out its competitors in the area. And speaking of tough, did you know that turtles were among the few animals that survived the K-T Extinction Event some 66 million years ago? Tough indeed. #5 African Helmeted Turtle Also known as the Marsh Terrapin this reptile lives in stagnant and fresh waters in sub-Saharan Africa. Their carapace can range in size from about 8 to 12 inches, and they appear innocuous enough. But they’re also called the Crocodile Turtle for the feeding behavior they can exhibit. This is the only turtle species that is known to attack in groups. WHen larger prey including water birds, snakes, or other species of turtles are within range, these omnivorous critters will launch an assault on the prey, capture it, and drown it. To the human eye, it can appear like a swarm of crocodiles attacking. #4 Loggerhead Turtles After the leatherback sea turtle, this is the second largest extant turtle in the world. … they generally weigh up to about 440 pounds with a length of more than 3 feet. The greatest weight documented was more than 1,200 pounds. That serves to make them the largest hard-shelled turtle in the world as well. And they are widely distributed throughout the world’s seas. They’re noted for their powerful jaws and for having an aggressive temperament … at last where the females are concerned. Female to female aggression is fairly unusual with marine vertebrates, but it seems to be common with loggerheads. Conflicts occur over feeding grounds, with the confrontations escalating until the turtles start snapping their huge jaws at one another. The standoff will often end with one combatant chasing off the other. This territorial behavior has also been observed with captive specimens … and conflicts occur with other sea turtles as well.. #3 Leatherback Sea Turtle This creature is the largest of all extant turtles … and at more than 1,500 pounds and measuring over 7 feet long, it’s also the world’s fourth heaviest modern reptile as well. Instead of a hard shell, they have a series of bony plates that is covered by a leathery, oily skin. Along with its hydrodynamic, tear shaped body, this creature is noted for its mouth … The creatures have no teeth, so instead of chewing its food the turtle uses its upper lip … and down its throat are a series of backwards-facing spines that not only help it swallow its food …. But also serves as a means of preventing the prey from escaping! That’s bad news for jellyfish in particular … that seems to be the favored cuisine of the animals … and they’ll often dive at depths exceeding 1000 meters to pursue their meal. They’re also pretty adventurous, found in waters from Alaska, to New Zealand. #2 Common Snapping Turtle This big turtle can be found from Canada to Florida … so the freshwater critter seems to favor its share of adventure. It’s notorious for its aggressive disposition when taken out of the water. Its beak like jaws are powerful, and its head and neck are exceptionally mobile. Adults can weigh up to 35 pounds, with a rugged carapace that measures more than 18 inches. Usually favoring ponds or streams, they typically don’t have many predators … But they actively hunt down prey including fish, frogs, and small mammals. Since they’re at the top of the food chain in their environment, the common snapper is not too easily perturbed. When encountering a human in the water, the turtles will often swim quietly away. But if they’re caught, they can become extremely aggressive … and can deliver a bite strong enough to amputate your finger. So if you see them in the wild, it’s best to respect the snapper’s space! 1...

Endangered Ocean: Sea Turtles
 
02:50
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. A healthy ocean depends on sea turtles. And sea turtles need our help. Get the story in 2:45 minutes.

Plastic Fork Removed From Sea Turtle's Nose
 
01:34
Video recorded by Sean A. Williamson. This olive ridley sea turtle was found with a plastic fork stuck inside its nostril. Lamentably, this is a consequence of a world of single-use, non-biodegradable plastic. There is a solution and it lies in our own decisions. Please say no to all single-use plastic. Every plastic straw, plastic bag, or plastic bottle that ends up in the oceans could mean the difference between life or death for any number of marine animals. The choice is easy. There are sustainable alternatives to single-use plastics. Canvas bags can replace plastic bags, bamboo cutlery can replace plastic cutlery. Please be part of the movement away from single use plastics. Nathan J. Robinson and the Las Baulas field team were able to remove the fork and the turtle returned to the ocean breathing freely!

Sea Turtle Entangled in Ghost Net Rescued

This video shows the detrimental effects of so-called ghost nets on marine animals. ***Warning: GRAPHIC CONTENT*** Video Credit and Copyright: Christine Figgener *** This footage is managed exclusively by Viralvideouk.com. If you wish to license this footage please contact [email protected] For more viral videos check here https://www.youtube.com/user/viralvideouk1 ** ----- Almost to the day exactly one year ago my research team found a plastic drinking straw embedded in a male olive ridley sea turtle's nostril (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wH878t78bw). We removed it and hopefully eased his suffering and improved his quality of life. This past 9th of August 2016, my research team once again encountered a sea turtle in distress. We found an exhausted olive ridley female swimming close to our research boat and she was dragging a huge bulk of discarded fishing net behind her. Parts of it were wrapped around her throat and had already started to cut into her flesh. We took her onboard our boat, cut-off the net, and disinfected her cuts with iodine. Due to the knowledge of the scarcity of sea turtle rehab facilities and lack of expert care for injured sea turtles in Costa Rica, we released the female back into the water since she seemed otherwise healthy and strong. As biologists, we don't actively seek out injured wildlife, but our research happens to position us at the front-lines of reality looking at the detrimental effects of human impact on wildlife. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Our research is approved by the US IACUC and is conducted under research permits issued by the Costa Rican government, MINAE/SINAC and CONAGEBio.

These nets, often nearly invisible in the dim light, can be left tangled on a rocky reef or drifting in the open sea. They can entangle fish, dolphins, sea turtles, sharks, dugongs, crocodiles, seabirds, crabs, and other creatures, including the occasional human diver. Acting as designed, the nets restrict movement, causing starvation, laceration and infection, and suffocation in those that need to return to the surface to breathe.

Endangered Ocean Life - Sea Turtles, Endangered Species
 
05:21
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.

Top 10 Most Dangerous Turtles In The World
 
07:32
Top 10 Most Dangerous Turtles In The World Have you ever seen a 7 foot turtle before well you will today, or at least learn about them. Some of these turtles will blow your mind or at least bite a piece of it off. These are the top 10 most dangerous turtles found in the wild today. #10 The Mata Mata Turtle I know it’s a cute name but “Mata Mata” means Kill Kill in Spanish. What’s funny about this name is that they are not little chucky doll like creatures at all. They are a very chilled and relaxed sort of turtle. They are native to the Amazon and in South America. The biggest they get is around 2 feet long fully grown. They do have a snake like neck that is longer than its body, they use this long neck like a snorkel because they stay underwater in streams. They eat fish in these streams by creating a vacuum like suction. A fish will be swimming along and “BOOM’, by snapping its jaw shut the water is pushed out of the mouth and the little fish is sucked in. And that is the way this little bugger eats dinner. #9 The African Helmeted Turtle This guy right here is also known as the crocodile turtle. These turtles naturally occur in fresh and stagnant water going all throughout Africa and in southern Yemen. This turtle is a tiny little fella. Most fully grown turtles end up being less than 8 inches long. They are known and recognized for their thick long tails. They eat many different animals but have been best known to grab bigger animals, such as doves while they are drinking. They grab the animal and drag in down and drown it. Catching their dinner like this causes such a commotion that the turtles many times are mistaken for crocodiles, and just like crocodiles, all the turtle’s food is taken underwater to be eaten. The coolest thing I could find about this little bugger was that during the warm months, it will sort of hibernate, by digging a whole and stay in the cool earth until the rains return. They will stay like this for months and even years in this state, so a little longer than your typical hibernating bear. #8 red eared slider This is the most popular pet turtle in the United States. It is Native to the US and Mexico, but because people release their pets all over the world they are everywhere. If you couldn’t guess how they get their name, its because of the small red stripe around their ears, and because they can slide super quick into water off of rocks and logs. They can live to be 20 to 30 years old.

Turtle swallows coins: Surgeons find 915 coins inside endangered green sea turtle - TomoNews
 
07:34
SRI RACHA, THAILAND — A team of veterinarians worked hours to remove more than 900 coins from the stomach of an endangered turtle found Monday in Sri Racha, Thailand. According to Thai tradition, tossing coins into a turtle pond can bring long life. Whether that’s true for the humans tossing the coins depends on your religious affiliation. However, it was certainly not the case for one poor 25-year-old female green sea turtle, the Associated Press reported. Unable to digest the coins, the turtle was taken to Chulalongkorn University for treatment by the Thai navy. She had swallowed 11 pounds of currency, a load so heavy it cracked her ventral shell, causing a life-threatening infection. A CT scan showed that 915 coins were lodged inside the turtle’s digestive system. Surgeons from the school’s veterinary faculty spent over four hours removing the coins bit by bit through a 4-inch incision. The turtle — nicknamed “Om-Sim,” or “Bank” in Thai — is recovering in the university’s animal hospital. It’s currently on a liquid-only diet. Nantarika Chansue, one of the surgeons who operated on Om-Sim, urged Thais to please stop throwing their dang coins into turtle ponds. She also thanked the kind souls who donated $428 for the turtle’s medical bills, the Bangkok Post reported. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

ENDANGERED OCEANS, SEA TURTLES
 
03:33
SEA TURTLES, THE CURRENT SITUATION The protection of the different species of sea turtles is becoming essential, if we want to guarantee their survival. The decline in turtle populations worldwide is due to various causes: different characteristics of their life cycle, vulnerability in some of their stages, bycatch, ship strikes, marine pollution, accidental ingestion of plastics, consumption of their meat and eggs, habitat destruction and building on their spawning grounds. The World Conservation Union (IUCN) (http://www.iucn.org/), has included sea turtles in their lists of threatened animals. In the category of critically endangered species we find: Lora (Lepidochelys kempi), Carey (Eretmochelys imbricata) and Leatherback (Dermochelys caretta). In the category of endangered species: Boba or Loggerhead Turtle (Caretta caretta), Tabasco turtle or White turtle (Chelonia mydas) and Olive Ridley or Olivacea (Lepidochelys olivacea).They are also listed in Appendix I of CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) (www.cites.org) containing all species of animals and plants threatened or endangered. These lists should give support to governments so they would cooperate with each other to prohibit the international trade of these animals. SITUATION IN CABO VERDE Cabo Verde is the third largest nesting area for loggerhead sea turtles worldwide, with between 9,000 and 22,000 nests per year. It is the only stable nesting spot in the Eastern Atlantic. Most spawns occur in the eastern islands of the archipelago: Sal, Maio and Bonavista, the latter being the main spawning ground. We also found in the area four other species of turtles: Tabasco turtle or White turtle (youth), Carey (youth), Leatherback turtle (sporadic adults) and Olive Ridley or Olivacea (ill or deceased individuals). The main threats to the turtles found in Cabo Verde are: development of coastal tourism and unsustainable consumption of turtle meat and eggs by local people, despite it being illegal. Unfortunately, human impacts are responsible for the rapid decline of sea turtle populations in recent years. It is important that we educate ourselves on the issues that are destroying our oceans and sea turtle populations. If we work to solve these problems, we can create a better marine ecosystem that will be mutually beneficial to humans and animals. Despite laws protecting sea turtles in most countries, the illegal trade of their meat of turtles continues to be a threat. In many parts of the world, these animals are harvested for their meat and eggs which are used for human consumption and in some places are considered a delicacy. Therefore, environmental education, responsible consumption and sustainable tourism are crucial for the survival of sea turtles.

The danger of plastic bags |Sea Turtle
 
00:24
Dr Robert van Dam, STCB's Scientific Officer, has captured excellent footage of a green turtle approaching and taking a bite from a plastic bag, thinking it is a jelly fish. Source - Sea Turtle Conservation Bonaire Sea turtles have been living on this planet named Earth for more than 100 million years and they have travelled throughout the oceans of the world. They are one of the oldest species living on the earth. Their body structure is so much well designed that they have even survived the extinction which the dinosaurs failed to survive. But now human beings have become the greatest threat for the survival of this mighty creature. We have destroyed the harmony of nature and environment in such a way that sea turtles who have survived great extinctions are now on the brink of getting extinct. We can learn about the present condition of the earth's climate and environment by observing the present condition of the sea turtles. Sea turtles are of great economic value. They are the assets of those countries who have them in their territory. Sea beaches are popular tourists spot. Every year lots of people travel throughout the beaches of the world. And the beauty of the sea beaches is its living beings. Without corals, fishes, turtles and other estuarine animals, sea beaches lose its beauty. And to keep the ecosystem of the sea working in a proper way, all living beings should be conserved. Green sea turtles are usually herbivorous in nature. They eat sea weds and keep them short which helps to maintain the quality of the sea bed. Sea grass also needed to be cut short like lawn grass for its better growth. Sea beds provide the ground for breeding for many valuable sea animals like crustaceans, fish, shellfishes etc. If turtles get extinct, health of the sea bed will be deteriorated and sea grass will decline. As a result, animals living on grass will be lost and this will affect other big animals who live on small herbivorous animals. Eventually whole ecosystem will collapse resulting in the destruction of the living beings of the sea which is the source of beauty of the sea beaches. So tourists would not come to travel sea beaches and the countries whose economies depend on tourism will suffer in the long run. Sea beaches and dune system can not hold nutrition. So vegetation does not grow well in dunes and in beaches it does not grow at all. Sea turtles nest and lay eggs on beaches. Each turtle lays almost 100 eggs each season. Not every egg would hatch and not each of the hatchlings would be able to come out of the eggs. All these unhatched eggs and hatchlings who do not become successful in coming out of the nest and make the way to the sea are the source of nutrition in the beaches and dunes. The more the nutrition the more vegetation grows in dunes. And as more vegetation grows, ecosystem of the beaches and dunes works properly. The vegetation also grabs the sands firmly in the beaches and prevents from being eroded. This saves the beauty of the sea beach. As the number of sea turtles is decreasing day by day, nutrition sources of dunes and beaches are also decreasing as a consequence. This will lead to the failure of the whole ecosystem and as a result the beach will lose its appeal to the tourists which will affect the economy of these countries severely. Sea turtles have historical importance too. They were the symbol of aristocracy and delicacy in the ancient time. In China and Japan tortoise shell were used as a decorative ornament. They used to make it from carapace scutes of tortoise shell. Sea turtle scutes were processed by ancient Greeks and Romans to make components like brush and combs. Aristocrat class people used these tortoise produced components. Peru's ancient inhabits Moche used to worship the sea and living beings of the sea. Sea turtles have often been highlighted on their arts. Mexican people harvest sea turtles for food and boot. In many areas of the world coastal people depend on turtles for the source of protein. Their skin is used for making shoes and leather bags in many areas of the world. They also protect humans from the attack of deadly box jellyfish by eating them. We can see that the world is becoming a hostile place for sea turtles. It is a clear warning to us that it might become harder for us to survive too. If we learn from the mistakes which we have made and pledge to make things right to save sea turtles from getting extinct, we will be saving ourselves too.

Manatees and Green Sea Turtles Are No Longer Endangered
 
01:06
West Indian manatees and some colonies of green sea turtles have been in danger of extinction for decades. But scientists have some good news about the much-loved sea creatures, which both have their largest U.S. populations in Florida. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says the West Indian manatee should be reclassified from "endangered" to the improved status of "threatened." The agency says threats to manatees are being addressed — and they are responding with major population growth. Conservation officials say they counted only 1,267 manatees in Florida when aerial surveys began in 1991. Now, the state hosts more than 6,300 manatees. Meanwhile, 2015 has been a good year for another species in Florida — green sea turtles. At The Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge in Florida, scientists counted 14,152 nests last year. In 2001, there were 198. http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2016/01/08/462398576/finally-some-good-news-for-manatees-and-green-sea-turtles http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Entertainment using http://wochit.com
sea turtles under risk of extinction
 
06:16
Sea turtles in Indonesia are at risk of extinction. Nowadays, four of seven known species of sea turtle are present in Indonesia. Two of them are critically endangered. The population size of these reptiles has been decreasing; in fact there are places where the decrease has reached 90 % during the last 50 years (East Kalimantan, Sumatra)! Behind this are human activities: collecting of turtle eggs for market where it is sold as a special delicacy to tourists, destruction of turtle beaches by hotels, sale of tortoiseshell souvenir on local markets and the water pollution. Turtles have been also suffering by destructive fishing practices as they die caught in trawl nets. A protection of sea turtles declared by both international conventions or by Indonesian law is ineffective.

Green sea turtles Danger, 99 per cent female
 
05:30
Green sea turtles Danger, 99 per cent female. One of the world’s largest turtle populations is turning almost entirely female, and the cause is most likely warming temperatures in a changing climate. The sex of hatchlings in sea turtles — and in a few other species such as alligators and crocodiles —depends on the temperature of the sand in which the eggs incubate, with warmer temperatures resulting in female hatchlings and cooler temperatures in males. The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) website specifies the temperature ranges that lead to offspring of one sex or the other: male when it is 27.7°C or cooler, female when 31°C or warmer, and a mix of male and female baby turtles when the temperature fluctuates between these two limits. In a study led by NOAA research biologist Michael Jensen, an international team of scientists used a new research method to assess sex ratios in two nesting populations of green sea turtles in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Turtles of the northern Great Barrier Reef (GBR) are genetically different from those of the southern GBR. The results of the study, published in Current Biology, showed an alarming female bias in turtles from the northern Great Barrier Reef, which is warmer than the southern GBR: 86.8% female among adults, 99.8% female among subadults and 99.1% female among juveniles. A female bias showed again in turtles from the cooler, southern GBR, but this was less stark: between 65% and 69% (see chart). The fact that the ratio exceeds 99% among the younger turtles from the warmer region, while being 86.8% among adults of the region, indicates that the proportion of females has increased in recent decades.

Meet The Team Protecting Costa Rica's Sea Turtle Mecca
 
04:20
Nearly all species of sea turtles are endangered, but Tortuguero, a small island on the eastern coast of Costa Rica, offers a safe place for nesting green and leatherback sea turtles. It was here in 1959 that Dr. Archie Carr opened the world's first turtle conservancy. To this day, the island is one of the world's most important breeding grounds for these turtles. We made the arduous journey there to watch the next generation hit the waves. Go baby sea turtles, go!
