Sea turtle surgeons remove a fish hook stuck deep inside the throat of an endangered green turtle. Every year an estimate of 100 sea turtles of varying species are treated this way by Amihan sa Dahican. Most of these beautiful creatures got caught by accident by local fishermen. By paying the turtles worth in coffee and sugar (about 10 USD per animal) the Amihan boys and girls get their environmental hands on these animals. They treat them as needed and once the animals are better, they release them back on the beautiful sandy beaches of Dahican. Amihan is also involved in regular beach clean-ups and they monitor the local turtle nests and relocate the eggs to safe area's of the beach if necessary until they hatch. the hatchlings are then guarded while the baby turtles find their way to the waves. The waves at Dahican beach are also perfect for surfing, so apart from their environmental activities Amihan are also a group of dedicated and very skilled surfers and skimboarders. More about Amihan sa Dahican on their website: http://amihansadahican.com/ Special thank you to the virtual mother of the sea turtle - Sabrina Mannan - who came up with the beautiful name ' Emily ' for this poor nameless female.

In the Florida Keys, the Turtle Hospital is fighting to save the dwindling population of American sea turtles. The hospital, which works to rehabilitate sick and injured sea turtles, treats human-caused conditions like flipper amputations, shell damage from boat collisions, and intestinal issues from ingesting plastic bags and fishing line. The most common surgery performed at the Turtle Hospital is the removal of viral tumors called Fibropapilloma, that affect over half of green sea turtles. In this short film, The Atlantic goes inside the Turtle Hospital to see firsthand the fight against sea turtle extinction.

Four-year-old Hawaii green sea turtles Wailele and Momona, who were hatched at Sea Life Park and raised at Dolphin Quest, were released into the ocean on Saturday, April 16, 2016 as part of a collaborative conservation initiative to protect Hawaii’s native and threatened turtle species. These young honu (Hawaiian for green sea turtle) have been ocean ambassadors at The Kahala Hotel & Resort since May 2013. During that time, tens of thousands of school children and visitors to the resort have had the rare opportunity to connect with this threatened species up-close and learn about their plight in the wild from Dolphin Quest’s education team. This partnership between The Kahala Hotel & Resort, Dolphin Quest, Sea Life Park, NOAA and the Department of Land and Natural Resources plays an important role in the conservation of these beautiful animals in Hawaii. This is the sixth pair of turtles that have been successfully released by Dolphin Quest Oahu into the wild. When they arrived in 2013 from Sea Life Park, they weighed only 20 pounds. Wailele and Momona now weigh over 100lbs. They were fitted with a microchip for future tracking and a temporary ID on their shell in case of sightings the first few days after the release. Some of the turtles in the Hawaiian Islands are likely survivors from the early 70’s when the Green sea turtle was added to the endangered species list. The growing tourist demand for exotic turtle meat and shell products took a toll on our Hawaii’s local honu and dwindled the number of nesting females below 150. Now, 40 years later, that number is above 850. The Hawaiian green sea turtle is currently a threatened species. Most of those 850 nesting females do so in northwest Hawaii on a low lying coral atoll. Sea level rise could have a sever impact on their nesting grounds. Although sea turtles have been on the planet for over 1 million years, 6 of the 7 species are threatened or endangered around the globe. This ocean ambassador program raises public awareness of these issues, inspires them to help protect these animals in the wild and it directly impacts the growth of the Hawaiian green sea turtle population.

Been very busy with Green Sea Turtles over the past week, this turtle was the third we have seen in the past week. This turtle is much smaller than the other turtles we have seen and the only one that was still alive. We found it near the high water mark along the Victoria Point foreshore, it was almost low tide. When we first saw it we thought it was dead, but we noticed its head move. On advice from the QLD Rangers, we took the turtle home. The turtle was looking much better when the Ranger arrived. It will go to Sea World or Australia Zoo to get a health check.

Sea turtles are presumed to be one of the most majestic creatures on earth, as in legend, myth, and folklore. Here’s 10 fascinating facts about sea turtles you probably didn’t know. SUBSCRIBE for the latest videos: https://goo.gl/7xzjzR Don't forget to CHECK OUT our latest upload: https://goo.gl/LUB8Xw 10. They’re older than dirt It’s true. While the exact number has been debated, studies determine that turtles go as far back as the Mesozoic age, better known as the age of the dinosaurs. Fossils dating 260 million years suggest this turtle-like specie of reptile crawled the earth, with the first marine turtle dating back 220 million years. This evolutionary phenomenon dubs turtles one of the oldest creatures on earth, around the same age as the dinosaurs, who became extinct about 65 million years ago. 9. Plus size turtles need love too A species known as the leatherback sea turtle can grow as large as six feet, and weigh in at about 550 to 2000 pounds. Also, like their size sea turtles can grow really, really old in age. 8. Sea turtles love going on vacation As the name suggests, these tedious travelers are the only specie of turtle that lack a hard shell, with a soft layer resembling a leathery texture; seemingly, the lighter load makes for easier movement. Scientists track leatherbacks by way of satellite and have tracked their progress over hundreds and even thousands of miles across the deep blue sea. 7. They could outswim Michael Phelps The devious divers slow their heart rate by up to nine minutes—a crafty way of conserving oxygen. Of course, this feat is highly dependent on their level of aquatic activity at the time. If sleeping, a sea turtle can survive under water for four to seven hours; during times of hibernation in colder waters, they can hold their breath for up to ten. 6. Home is where the heart is Sea turtles have an innate connection to their natal beaches. So, when it comes time to lay their eggs, females return to the same birthing place as generations before. Turtle shells and human fingernails are one in the same. An interesting point that most don’t know, is that unlike land turtles, a sea turtle lacks the ability to hide their head inside their shells. Moreover, the shell is made up of two parts—the upper part being the carapace (with a flatter shape to help them swim), and the bottom known as the plastron. This entire structural skeleton is made up of keratin, the same fibrous substance found in fingernails, and the most abundant form of protein on earth. The whole shell is fused together by 60 bones, and if one were to rip the turtle from its homey habitat, they would rip the poor animal’s body apart. 4. Some like it hot If the egg incubates at colder temperatures such as 82 Fahrenheit, the gender is subsequently male. If temperatures are over 88—the hatchling will be female. Interestingly enough, any number between the aforementioned can be a mix of either. What’s more, maternal sea turtles don’t lay on their eggs, so any form of temperature to permeate the nest is from sand alone. On average only one in one thousand hatchlings survive. 3. Turtles have feelings, too Scientists link tears to the birthing process because the behavior was only observed when the females came ashore, yet studies have shown they cry in the sea as well. Sea turtles must run certain glands in order to maintain the correct balance of salt in their bodies, therefore, research has associated crying with egg laying when really the production of tears help flush salt and sand from their eyes. Still, if it looks like these sweet sea creatures are all lone shedding tears, it’s… 2. Probably because They’re endangered Several factors impede the survival of sea turtles, the most common being entanglement by fishing nets, habitat loss due to tourism, and the consumption of their eggs and flesh as food. Poaching and exploitation results in the slaughtering of their shells and skin; in addition, sea turtles suffer from climate change which has a severe effect on their nesting sites. Lastly, waste—such as in the form of plastic bags and bottles, are an attractive food source and quickly lead to suffocation and death. 1. They’ve got their own built-in GPS system Sea turtles possess an innate ability to determine their exact location on earth as well as the direction they need to be. This skill allows the ocean dwellers to locate favorable feeding grounds as well as their natal birthing grounds. Scientists have determined that sea turtles are very sensitive to the earth’s magnetic field, and much like a compass that relays direction, sea turtles can do just that. In addition, through said magnetic force, the pull allows them positional info, much like that of a GPS system.

In Malaysia there is an island known for more sea turtles than virtually anywhere on Earth. Jonathan visits this amazing ecosystem to learn about the life cycle of sea turtles. He is surprised to discover an amazingly complex and competitive environment. This is an HD upload of a previously released segment. ********************************************************************** If you like Jonathan Bird's Blue World, don't forget to subscribe! You can join us on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/BlueWorldTV Twitter https://twitter.com/BlueWorld_TV Instagram @blueworldtv Web: http://www.blueworldTV.com ********************************************************************** We head out towards the reefs of Sipadan island. This island is so small that you can walk all the way around it on the beach in an hour. Yet, it has a huge population of sea turtles. As the school of fish swims away, I spot my first sea turtle—a Green sea turtle swimming over the reef. It wasn’t hard because they’re everywhere. Some are swimming around, while others are napping on and in the reef. Sea turtles actually sleep underwater while holding their breath. A sea turtle can easily hold its breath over an hour! A few hundred feet away, I find a Hawksbill sea turtle munching on the reef. She is plucking out tasty sponges and invertebrates that hide in the coral, rather than eat the coral itself. It takes a tough stomach to digest this stuff. As we circle the island, I can see the tracks left in the sand by females that have climbed the beach to lay their eggs. It all starts when a male, identified by his long tail, catches up with a cooperative female and courts her. From the surface, I see the action and I prepare to film it. The mating has begun, and I quietly approach to film the action. Mating is not easy for the female sea turtle. She must swim—and rise to breathe—for both of them. The male's long tail holds the female and fertilizes the eggs, while claws on his front flippers give him the ability to grasp the female's shell. The commotion doesn't go unnoticed by other males in the area. They flock to the mating pair, which have drifted away from the reef. Eventually, no less than four additional male turtles arrive to challenge the suitor. They all try the same techniques and it is starting to wear him down. Meanwhile the female is near exhaustion. The male is only struggling to hold on….the female is struggling to survive. Hours later, the male has outlasted his rivals. He fertilizes the female's eggs and with luck his genes will continue on. As if her job weren't hard enough already, the female now faces another tremendous task--to lay the eggs—but it must wait until nightfall. After the sun sets, I head to the beach in total darkness. The females come ashore and lay their eggs in the sand. I have found a turtle hauling herself out of the water, painstakingly clawing her way up the beach to high ground. Although sea turtles live their entire lives in the ocean, they lay their eggs in a nest on the beach. After the sea turtle reaches an area well above the high tide line, she begins to throw sand around to create a pit. She's out of her element and vulnerable. The slightest sound or light would frighten her back into the water. She must stop frequently to catch her breath. Her crushing weight on land literally asphyxiates her. She begins to dig a hole about 3 feet deep with her rear flippers. The hole doesn't just protect the eggs from predators. The sex of the baby turtles is a function of the incubation temperature. A shallow nest baking in the sun will be too warm and all the babies will be female. A deep one will be too cold and the babies will all be male. Digging to the right depth insures a good mix of males and females. At last she begins to lay as many as 100 squishy eggs about the size of ping pong balls into the nest. In 2 months, these eggs will hatch and the baby turtles will emerge. After she has finished laying her eggs, she carefully fills in the hole. Then she cleverly disguises the exact location of the nest by flinging some sand around. After two hours of effort, she plods her way laboriously back to the sea, completely exhausted. Two months later, newly hatched sea turtles race to the sea. Each baby turtle must rush past a gauntlet of predators from land, sky and sea to reach the open ocean. Odds are, only one of these baby sea turtles will survive. On their journey, the sea turtles must fight their way through the surf, swim across the shallows and then make their way to the open ocean, away from predators on the reef. They won’t return to their home on the reef until they are large enough to be safe—about the size of a dinner plate. It’s a long and perilous journey but if this sea turtle survives, it may go on to live over a hundred years.

The HONU, our Sacred Aumakua. There has been a considerable amount of disrespect given to The HONU, The Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle...The NA AUMAKUA by some Tourists and Locals. I wanted to put this video together to make all of us AWARE once again that we must Honor and Respect this graceful and beautiful Endangered Species, not only because few exist, but also because of the Deep History they serve in Hawaiian culture. If there is one thing we need to always remember is look, don't touch...swim with them, not against them. Keep your distance and do not get too close, NEVER TOUCH, FEED or HARASS them! NEVER UPSET THEM and only swim with them for a few minutes at a time. If a Honu has beached itself only take a few pictures at a reasonable distance then move a greater distance away to observe them in their natural environment. These Honu come into the shallows to eat so lets not disturb them for long periods of time. When they come onto the beach they do so to relax and sleep for hours. ..Again, respect them and give them space to do so. These beings feel comfortable around the locals and tourists because many of us respect them and their space. For the Honu to continue to swim with us and rest on Hawaiian beaches they must trust us. As long as you take these steps I mentioned these amazing beings will continue to allow us to be in their presence. If you follow them for too long and harass them in the water they will be afraid of us and not come into the shallows to eat. If we touch them, try to pick them up or make rude gestures around them while on the beach it's a CLEAR BREACH OF HAWAIIN STATE LAW and you can be FINED and PROSECUTED for such. PLEASE, respect our sacred Aumakua. Pass the spirit of Aloha on to the many HONU green sea turtles you come in contact with may it be in the ocean or on the beach. Thank them before you leave each one you come in contact with for allowing them to let you swim or be near them. They Trust you, Please don't break that trust. This is the Aloha way. Enjoy everyone , Aloha Nui!

Join us in welcoming one of our smallest rescued sea turtles, Feta, back home to the Gulf. Feta, named during our cheese theme, is a juvenile green sea turtle that was found floating off of Clearwater Beach on January 31, 2018. Feta is one of our smallest rehabilitation patients weighing in at only 1.8 pounds. When she arrived at CMA we realized she was missing parts of her tail, most likely due to predation, but she never let that slow her down! #CMAinspires Visit us at Clearwater Marine Aquarium: http://bit.ly/1EKyytp https://www.facebook.com/SeeWinter https://www.instagram.com/cmaquarium/ https://twitter.com/CMAquarium https://www.pinterest.com/cmaquarium/

Here are 14 facts about sea turtles, a beautiful yet fascinating sea creature found in warm and temperate oceans. Video courtesy of Peet J van Eeden The silent world of sea turtles https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=baJgS-07F5o Used under creative commons license. Images used courtesy of Wikipedia Synopsis here are seven species of sea turtle that exist in the worlds oceans today. They are one of the worlds most ancient creatures and have exisited for about 110 million years. They are known for their shell or carapice which is stream-lined to help the turtle swim. The difference between sea turtles and other types of turtle is that sea turtles cannot pull their heads and legs into their shells. The colour of sea turtles vary from species to species and can be yellow, green, or black. They eat foods such as shrimp, sea sponges, snails, algae, moluscs, sea weed, and crabs. It is unknown what their population is because male sea turtles and young juvinile sea turtles do not go back to the shore once they hatch and they remain at sea. Sea turtles such as green sea turtles have the ability to stay underwater for up to five hours. This is despite their actual feeding time being less than five minutes. When they are underwater, the sea turtle slows their heart rate in order to preserve their oxygen underwater. This can slow up to 9 minutes per beat. They enjoy warm and temperate waters and they migrate long distances as far as 1400 miles between the areas they feed and where they nest. Not much is known about the behaviour of sea turtles as they spend most of their time at sea and much of the information gathered has been obtained from observing females and their hatchlings. When they nest females will dig out a nest in the ground an bury their eggs before they return to the sea and leave the eggs alone. When they hatch, the young sea turtles are completely on their own and without the aid of their mother. They will take as long as a week to dig themselves out of the nest in which they are buried. Once they have dug themselves out of the burrow, young sea turtles will start to move towards the ocean but will do this in the cover of night to avoid predators and launch out to the sea left to fend for themselves.

Welcome to another episode of Natural World Facts! This fact file is all about Sea Turtles in the series Reptiles and Amphibians. - Brief Overview: Turtles are among the oldest groups of reptilians, having evolved millions of years ago. They can be found all over the world and inhabit almost every type of climate. There are seven different species of sea turtle, all of which vary in size and shape. The largest marine turtle is the leatherback. It can grow up to 7 feet (2 meters) long and weighs up to 2,000 lbs. (900 kilograms). The average lifespans of sea turtles can vary from 30 to 100 years, depending on the species. - Appearance: The appearance of marine turtles varies between species. The green sea turtle has a wide, smooth carapace which is brown or olive in colour, depending on its habitat. It is named after the greenish colour of its skin. The leatherback turtle has a rubbery, black shell while all other sea turtles have hard, bony shells. Ridges along its carapace help give it a more streamlined and hydrodynamic structure. Depending on the species, sea turtles colouring can range from olive-green, yellow, greenish-brown, reddish-brown, or black. All species of marine turtles have four flippers to help them swim, unlike tortoises or land turtles which have thick stubby legs for moving on land. - Diet: Sea turtles are omnivores, which means they eat both meat and vegetation, although their diet varies between species. Their diet consists of shrimp, seaweed, crabs, jellyfish, sponges, algae and mollusks. - Habitat: Sea turtles can be found in all the worlds oceans. The Kemp's Ridley turtle usually can be found in the Gulf of Mexico. The Flatback turtle inhabits the ocean around Australia, while the leatherback swims in every ocean on the planet. Green sea turtles and loggerhead turtles tend to stick to tropical and subtropical coastal waters. - Breeding: In the mating season, females and males migrate to the same beach where they were born, using the magnetic fields of the Earth as their guide. The migrations can be over 1,400 miles (2,253 kilometers) long. Sea turtles lay their eggs in clutches of 70 to 190 eggs. Females lay their clutches in holes they have dug in the beach. Once they have laid the eggs, they cover them in sand and return to the sea. Once the eggs hatch, the babies will dig their way out of their hole. Once free, the juveniles hurry to the safety of the sea to avoid being cooked by the sun or eaten by predators. - Status: The Kemp’s Ridley sea turtle is listed as critically endangered on the IUCN red list of threatened species, but the leatherback is listed as vulnerable. Some of the biggest threats to sea turtles include; oil spills, habitat loss (due to coastal development), accidental catching and poaching.

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.

An endangered green sea turtle is saved by the Amihan Sa Dahican surgeons by removing a fishing hook from it's throat. In this video you see how the hook is removed with very primitive (low cost) means and you hear some comments from the surgeons about environmental issues involving sigarette buds and dolphins. Annually an estimate of 100 turtles recieve a similar treatment in order for them to survive. These beautiful sea creatures are caught by local fishermen who sell them (for some sugar, cofee, rice, etc ... about 12 usd worth) to the Amihan Sa Dahican boys. Then Amihan treats them as needed and finally releases the animals on the Dahican beach where the animals head back for the waves. As the beach in Dahican is a popular nesting ground for a variety of species of sea turtles the Amihan boys also protect the nesting sites and they make sure that the hatchlings find safe passage to the sea. PS: 12 USD might seem little to you, but for the surgeons it is a lot of money coming entirely out of their own pockets. More saved turtles is less food for themselves. You can contact these turtle heroes through their FB page if you wish to help them a little.
