World Turtle Day!

Today is World Turtle Day, sponsored by the California-based American Tortoise Rescue to bring attention to, and increase knowledge of and respect for, turtles and tortoises, and to encourage people to help them survive and thrive.

In honor of World Turtle Day, the LA Times blog LA UNLEASHED (All Things Animal in Southern California and Beyond) has a post Your morning adorable: Baby Sea Turtles released in Mexico! The YouTube video of the baby turtles scrambling down the sand and plunging into the surf is very cute…Check it out! The article also has suggestions for how we can help our shelled friends….

  1. Mary Jo, you couldn’t have posted a cuter entry!
    I loved this– thank you.

    • Thanks, Deb. I’d love to see baby sea turtles someday (I have seen a sea turtle laying her eggs on a beach at night, which was amazing).
