Sea Turtles Connect All of Us

New England Aquarium shared a great story on Oct. 31 about a sea turtle named “Harriet” rescued in 1999 and rehabilitated. Years later, in 2009, she was found in Texas nesting on North Padre Island, then later on South Padre Island.
Her nests were then recovered and protected by the North Padre NPS Sea Turtle Science & Recovery Division and Sea Turtle, Inc., so they could hatch and make their own journey to the sea.
Since sea turtles migrate along the continents and around the globe, these turtles need people helping them in many places if they are to recover their numbers enough to leave the endangered species list.
It is truly motivating to hear stories like this and remember that we are all connected. To read the New England Aquarium’s story, go to http://rescue.neaq.org/2014/10/this-is-why-we-do-it.html.
