Of turtles and whales

March 6, 2018

Kemp's Ridley sea turtleSea turtle conservation efforts seem to be working, worldwide. The Texas coastal bend is a key part of the Kemp ridley range. (Kemp ridley shown in photo.) Donna Shaver, head honcho at Padre Island for protecting these turtles (see photo), has been recognized for her work.

Alas, the situation is not so sanguine for the right whale, which is on the verge of extinction, and had no calves this season. Lobstermen are doing their part.
