Loggerhead Sea turtle: How we can save them?

   Loggerhead sea turtles are one of the marine species that are close to the U.S. They’re on the endangered species list which is sad. These turtles have a life span of 50 years, and that can decrease if we don’t help them.

   We can help loggerhead sea turtle by:

  • Cleaning up the Beaches

Since sandy beaches are nesting sites for many sea turtles, we should clean up our beaches. If we clean up our beaches many sea turtles would come to nest and that can help increase the sea turtle populations and give the people a chance to see turtle nesting season.

  • Recycle or find a different way of disposing plastic.

Since many sea turtles eat jellyfish, plastic bags can look very familiar to a jellyfish. When a turtle tries to digest a plastic bag it can get stuck in their throat and/or stomach which won’t allow them to digest anything else. 

  • Volunteer in sea turtle organizations.

Many organizations fund to help save sea turtles by trying to create a natural reserve area for sea turtles to be protected. In these natural reserve sea turtles can be nurtured, healed,feed,etc

       You are not limited to these suggesting Create your own ideas one idea can make a change if you out all your hard work and effort in it.

Fierce but alone…Florida Cougars

There used to be about 50,000 Florida cougars,but in 2006 there were only about 87 adult Florida cougars left. Florida Cougars are one of the largest of cats in North America. Even though the FLorida cougar can adapt to any habitat, their wild habit is being destroyed. Florida Cougars can make different sounds like growls, hisses, and bird-like whistles. They can even purr softly like a house cats, or make hair-raising screaming sounds. If Florida Cougars become extinct then he food change would change and many other animals would become extinct.

Chinese river dolphins…GONE!

In December, 2006, the Chinese river dolphin, also know as the baiji (which means “the goddess of the Yangtze”), became extinct. According to http://www.washingtonpost.com/ , they became extinct because of pollution and ship trading. Pollution was a major effect because the baiji’s habitat was being filled with sewage and the propellers disrupted the dolphin’s sonar-based sensory system. Human activity is affecting many animal habitats with as a result animals who lived on this earth longer than us are becoming extinct. If we stop the pollution we can save the worlds most beautiful creatures.

Interesting fact:

There are no subspecies of the Yangtze River Dolphin.

It is a drastic…

It is a drastic mistake to eliminate the provisions that have to do with the protection of habitat for endangered species. It is my opinion that the Endangered Species Act is 99 percent about protecting critical habitat.
