These disturbing images show the terrible damage plastic bags can inflict on vulnerable wildlife. The shocking autopsy pics show sea turtles in Australia that have been killed by the seemingly innocuous shopping item. Plastic bags are often ingested by the creatures who think they are jelly fish. They then form into balls which can block the turtles intestines and stomach. The turtles then either starve, have their gut punctured, or even die from toxins released by the bags. Roughly 180 million plastic bags are thrown away each year across the Australia, according to conservationists the Boomerang Alliance. The group are now calling for a nation-wide ban. Dr Larry Vogelnest, senior veterinarian at Sydney's Taronga Zoo told the Sydney Morning Herald : "Sea turtles are the main species we have affected. "They see these bags in the water and they think they are jelly fish, so they eat them. "70 per cent of turtles we get in have ingested plastic, around 20 per cent of those end up dying." The Australian Registry of Wildlife Health, which operates as part of the Zoo, has released these chilling images to show the damage the plastic bags can do.

Bali's Killing Fields (2001) - In the island paradise of Bali the ritual slaughter of the magnificent green sea turtle is something the tourists most definitely don’t get to see... although they can taste turtle at any street satay stall. Subscribe to Journeyman here: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures The turtles are dismembered while still alive, their protective under-shells sliced off so their freshest blood can be offered to the Gods. 20,000-30,000 turtles face this cruel fate every year … the majority of them not for religious purposes, but for the flavour of their meat. The World Wildlife Fund is proposing a travel boycott of Bali, until the government does something to enforce its official ban on turtle killing. Meanwhile, the turtle traders, who rely on the meat for their livelihood, are threatening to hit back by burning the WWF office building.

From tiny baby terrapins, to the most massive turtle in the world, these are 12 of the Most Unusual Turtles! Subscribe to Epic Wildlife http://goo.gl/6rzs5u Let's Connect -- http://www.epicadamwildlife.com/ -- http://www.facebook.com/epicadamwildlife -- http://www.twitter.com/epicwildlife -- http://gplus.to/epicwildlife Pig Nosed Turtle It’s the only freshwater turtle that has flippers similar to that of marine turtles … but that’s not their most distinguishing physical characteristic, of course. As you can see, the creature’s nose resembles that of a pig. But its proboscis (proh-BHAS-is) isn’t only there for show. The nose can function as a type of snorkel, protruding through the water’s surface as the critter stays submerged. It’s also sensitive to movement, and is used to hunt prey in murky waters. They’re native to Australia and New Guinea, and can weigh over 40 pounds. African Helmeted Turtle As you might expect, this reptile is native to Africa, and is found in bodies of water from the Sub-Saharan regions to Yemen. They have four glands on each of their limbs that produce a powerful odor that humans and equines in particular find offensive. Unlike many turtles, this species is able to right itself from being upside down .. with just a flick of their long, muscular necks. These turtles are rather small with the average carapace (KARE-uh-pace) around 20 cm long. But they have been observed to hunt in groups … Often taking down larger prey like doves when the birds land to drink. Did you know this is the only turtle species known to exhibit such behavior? Conga Line Northern Map Turtles are not considered rare … nor are they especially weird. Unless you count their skin and carapace … They possess markings that resemble contour lines found on a map or chart … Hence their name. However, we did find some pictures of these unassuming reptiles caught in a rather weird position … that of a conga line! Seven of the turtles were found in the well-choreographed pose on a log that was floating in a lake in Ontario, Canada. And there is a specific reason why the the animals assumed the position. Experts tell us it’s their way of catching rays … That is, the turtles are warming their blood from the heat of the sun, and absorbing Vitamin D which builds strong bones and shells. It seems the log in the middle of the water was the only option on which all seven of them could perch. Mata Mata This scary looking critter is found in the Orinoco and Amazon Basins of South America. And in Spanish, its name translates to “kill kill”. The creatures can grow up to two feet long and tend to be more sedentary than other turtles. Did you know their unique neck is actually longer than its vertebrae? It’s long enough to function as a snorkel, as it stays submerged at the bottom of a stream. When feeding, they can essentially ‘vacuum’ prey into their mouths. As fish approach, the turtle will open its mouth wide … As a low-pressure vacuum is created, Mata Matas will expel the water by snapping their mouth shut, and swallowing the prey whole. This type of ‘suction feeding’ is practiced because their jaws are physically unable to chew. Due to their unique looks, these critters are popular in the exotic pet trade … and are said to live up to 75 years! Baby Diamondback Terrapins We identified these tiny turtles as baby Diamondback Terrapins. While they’re small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, they will grow bigger. Females grow bigger than males … they measure around 7.5 inches as opposed to the male’s 5 inch size. Diamondback Terrapins get their name from the odd, diamond-like patterns found on the top of their shell, or carapace … you can discern some of those patterns in the picture. The animals exhibit unusual, wiggly black markings and spots across their head and body. They’re found in brackish tide waters from the US to Bermuda … and can survive in full-strength salt water for extended periods thanks to their skin being impermeable to salt. Did you know that when it rains these animals will obtain fresh water by raising their heads with their mouths open to catch raindrops? Leatherback Sea Turtle This is not only the largest of all living turtles … it’s also the fourth heaviest modern reptile in the world! They can grow more than 7 feet long, up to 5 feet wide, and weigh more than 1500 pounds. Did you know the Leatherback is called such because it’s the only sea turtle that doesn’t have a hard shell. As its name implies, the animal has oily, leathery skin that covers a series of bony plates underneath. Unlike other turtles, these Sea Turtles can’t retract their arms, legs or heads into their shells. They’re found as far north as Alaska, to the southernmost tip of New Zealand.

10-March-2017 .... San Marcos Texas .. I came across this beautiful little Texas Water Turtle today, that had been severely injured by a passing vehicle....The Turtle was obviously suffering, and so I removed the Turtle from the road and ended its' life at my home ... Not much I can say really.....it is just a bit depressing to see year-after-year, so many vulnerable animal species like Turtles...Birds...Small & Mid-Sized Mammals, being routinely slaughtered by cars and trucks.... If you ever get the chance to help keep a traveling animal off a road or highway, and can in some way steer that animal in another direction, or maybe carry it across the road......please do so......Thanks.

RESTRICTIONS: Broadcast: NO USE JAPAN, NO USE TAIWAN Digital: NO USE JAPAN, NO USE TAIWAN Researchers found that ingesting just one piece of plastic could increase the chance of a sea turtle to die by 22 percent, according to a study published in the Scientific Reports. The researchers found younger turtles have a higher risk of dying from plastic than adult turtles as they tend to float with the ocean currents where most of the small lightweight plastic lies. Adult turtles in comparison tend to be choosier with what they eat, choosing instead to eat sea grass and crustaceans. The researchers explained a even a thin, flimsy piece of plastic could block the intestine, resulting in blockage in the long run. While harder pieces of plastic could cause internal injuries, which could ultimately lead to death. The study also found that about half of the sea turtles on Earth have already consumed plastic. Dr. Hardesty, one of the authors of the study, said we should "rethink our relationship with plastic" and work to reduce the turtles' exposure to plastic. RUNDOWN SHOWS: 1.

From the elusive cave dwelling salamander, to the invincible koi fish, these are 10 of the OLDEST living creatures ! Koi -- Well known to inhabit decorative ponds, Koi are a domesticated and ornamental variety of the common carp. Certain varieties of koi are thought to live between 100-200 years. A famous red koi named “Hanako” reportedly lived to be 225 years old. Tortoise -- Tortoises are known for their longevity … but did you know the oldest tortoise lived to the ripe old age of 250 years old! Well, there is some controversy about that… But the story goes that Adwaita was captured in the Seychelles Islands in the 1700s, and was donated to the Alipore Zoo in India in 1875, and lived there -- outliving his keepers -- until 2006. Greenland Shark -- They’re also known as the Grey Shark or the Sleeper Shark … but they’re not as well known as the Great White although the Greenland rivals their size at over 20 feet long and weighing nearly 2500 pounds. One reason for the animal’s anonymity is their habitat. Native to North Atlantic waters, they prefer colder temperatures and tend to swim as deep as 2200 meters. And they’re thought to have long lifespans, possibly over 200 years. That number was arrived at when a shark was caught and tagged near Greenland in 1936. When it was recaptured in 1952, researchers found it had grown 6 cm longer. Following that formula, a mature 7-meter shark would be more than 200 years old. Ocean Quahog (qwa-hog) -- Much like the age of a tree can be deduced from its rings, these clams have dark concentric rings or banding on their shells that researchers interpret as annual marks. Judging from those rings, some specimens have been estimated at over 400 years old. In one notorious case from 2006, an ocean quahog clam nicknamed Ming was taken off the coast of Iceland. When its annual marks or growth rings were counted, the clam’s age was calculated at 405. When scientists opened the shell to study the animal’s insides, they effectively killed the clam. However, later analysis including carbon-14 dating proved the clam was actually 507 years old, making it the oldest individual animal whose age could be verified. It also earned Ming a Guinness Record for oldest mollusk. Ming, by the way, was named for the Chinese dynasty that was in power around the time it was born. Turritopsis Nutricula Jellyfish -- This animal might have actually found the fountain of youth. Endemic to the Caribbean Sea and the Mediterranean, it has the ability to cycle from mature adult stage to primordial birth stage, and back again … seemingly able to repeat the process endlessly. It’s the only species in the world capable of this sort of transformation. At this point researchers are unsure if the creature’s lifespan has any natural limit … maybe that’s why the creature is also known as the Immortal Jellyfish. Mata Mata Turtle -- In Spanish, the name “Mata Mata” translates to ‘kill kill’, and are found in the Amazon and Orinoco basins in South America. They’re identified by their unique neck which is actually longer than its vertebra. That long neck functions as a natural snorkel, allowing the animal to keep its nose above water while staying staying on the bottom of a stream. They can also stretch their neck and open their mouth wide to create a vacuum, enabling them to swallow fish whole, since their jaws aren’t able to chew food. As adults, they’re known to measure around around 18 inches and weigh up to 33 pounds, and are readily available in the exotic pet trade. If you want one, keep few things in mind: They have a steep price tag and they’re known to live between 40 to 75 years … if you really pamper them, they might make it past 100!. Sea Sponge -- In 2016, a massive sea sponge was found off the Hawaiian coast that measured 3.5 meters long, 1.5 meters wide and 2 meters high, residing over 2000 meters below the surface. That size gives it claim to be the world’s largest sponge … and possibly the oldest living animal in the world! You can see the creature in these pictures from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The images were captured by two remote operated vehicles. The research team that made the discovery hasn’t been able to determine an exact age for the sponge. However, researcher David Wagner said he’s encountered other huge coral species at these depths that can live to be a few thousand years old … with the oldest being 4500 years old!

(29 Aug 2018) About 300 sea turtles were found floating dead off Mexico's southern Pacific coast after they were trapped in an abandoned illegal fishing net. The office for environmental protection says the Olive Ridley turtles drowned after getting caught in the net. The Coordinator for Civil Protection in San Pedro Mixtepec, Jose Antonio Ramirez Garcia told the Associated Press that the net could have been cast by a tuna fishing ship. They had been trapped in a 393-foot (120 metres) long net that is not approved for fishing. Experts suspect asphyxiation, toxic algae or hooks attached to the net could have killed the animals. The cause of the deaths is still under investigation. The turtles were buried on the beach, and officials were also investigating who set the net. Mexico has imposed criminal penalties for anyone found guilty of killing sea turtles, and the government's special prosecutorial office for crimes against the environment was leading the probe.

Visit Mr Turtle's Aquatic Turtle Care and Advice page and join the community Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/MrTurtleIG/ Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/didimitten/ Hello and welcome to another didimitten video. Today I am going to explain why gravel is a bad idea to use as a substrate in your turtle tank and the dangers it has for your turtle or turtles. I have had a lot of questions regarding the use of gravel so I am using this video to explain why it is a bad idea. Gravel can be swallowed by your curious turtle and can sometimes tragically lead to impaction. This is when the gravel becomes stuck in the digestive tract of the turtle and can also cut the turtle from the inside causing internal bleeding. This leads to surgery and even death. Wild turtles of course encounter gravel in the wild and many other dangers. Many may have died from impaction as well as deaths to a predator, motor vehicles, and illness. Regardless of the fate of wild turtles, captive turtles HAVE died from impaction caused by gravel. This is a sad fact and can be avoided by simply using a different substrate. Gravel is also sharp and can cause scratches and lesions on the plastron (underside) of the turtles shell and this can lead to infection and shell rot. If you have any other questions regarding this please leave them in the comment section and I will always try my best to answer and respond. Please subscribe for more turtle advice and fun and if you are interested in beauty advice and tips, you can wander over to my beauty channel http://www.youtube.com/beautybymitten/ to see that.

This is a long video but I detail the entire process of cleaning a snapping turtle, from dispatch through skinning to save the skin and butchering the turtle for the meat. Snapping turtles can be easy to catch, yield a good amount of meat and are relatively easy to keep if you catch one but aren't quite ready to butcher it yet. In addition their skin, shell, and skull also all make nice display pieces. I hope this is helpful and not too long in teaching you how to clean a snapping turtle.

While on a research project in Costa Rica, Nathan J. Robinson removed a 10 cm (4 in) plastic straw that was entirely embedded into the nostril of an olive ridley sea turtle. Lamentably, this is a consequence of the world of single-use, non-biodegradable plastic that we currently live in. There is a solution and it lies in our own decisions. Please say no to all single-use plastic. Every plastic straw, plastic bag, or plastic bottle that ends up in the oceans could mean the difference between life or death for any number of marine animals. Video taken by: Christine Figgener.

Today we saw Sri Lanka baby sea turtles hatching and released them into the wild! Another bucket list item checked. Hikkaduwa Beach is famous for it’s wild sea turtles and public turtle hatchery ran by the coast guard right in Southern Sri Lanka. Also known as one of the best beaches in Sri Lanka, Hikkaduwa gave us an unforgettable memory that we will never forget. Watch this vlog to find out where to see turtles in Sri Lanka! We got to Hikkaduwa beach early in the morning and we were sad to learn there were no baby sea turtles being released into the ocean that morning. We then decided to head over to a turtle hatchery north of Hikkaduwa Beach to see if they would release any sea turtles that evening. Unfortunately, we didn’t have any luck there either and the turtle hatchery was quite sad. All of the turtles were confined in smaller tanks and we weren’t sure how humane the whole program was. A nice local gentleman told us that the local Sri Lankan coast guard would be releasing turtles that night, so we went back to Hikkaduwa Beach to check in with them. They confirmed they would release baby sea turtles that night, but not until 6pm. With 5 hours to kill, we walked around the beaches in Sri Lanka and enjoyed some of the local shops in Hikkaduwa town. A bit later, we went to turtle beach, also known as turtle point, to feed the huge green turtles that come to feed every night at 5pm. We got so lucky to see 5 giant wild sea turtles and feed them with our own hands! If you’re looking to see turtles in Sri Lanka, this is definitely the spot. Last but certainly not least, we went to the coast guard to wait for the baby sea turtle release. Our hearts were broken when we heard that there wouldn’t be a turtle release because not enough of the eggs had hatched. Luckily, they saw how sad we were and agreed to do a smaller scale wild sea turtles release! We highly recommend coming to visit the Coast Guard on Hikkaduwa beach instead of visiting a turtle hatchery in Sri Lanka. The coast guard runs a completely free operation and can ensure the turtles are released into the while the second they are ready unlike the hatcheries. If you are interested in a Sri Lanka beach holiday, Hikkaduwa beach is a great place to start and discover Sri Lanka’s southern coast. Being able to feed and release baby sea turtles into the wild was a once in a lifetime experience! If you have any questions about the best places to visit in Sri Lanka, how to explore Sri Lanka, or any questions about the baby sea turtles please comment down below. We know there is a lack of information online about the turtles in Hikkaduwa beach, so we would love to help! Make sure to subscribe if you are interested in cinematic Sri Lanka travel vlogs.

'A single piece of plastic' can kill sea turtles, says study A new study suggests that ingesting even a single piece of plastic can be deadly for sea turtles.Researchers found there was a one in five chance of death for a turtle who consumed just one item - rising to 50% for 14 pieces. The team found that younger turtles are at a higher risk of dying from exposure to plastic than adults. The authors say their research raises concerns over the long term survival of some turtle species.The never ending surge of plastic into the world's oceans is taking an increasing toll on iconic marine species. While it has been relatively straightforward for researchers to document the threat to animals who become entangled in plastic and drown, determining the impact of consumed plastic is much harder.The authors of this study estimate that around half of all the sea turtles on the planet have ingested plastic - this rises to 90% among juvenile green sea turtles off the coast of Brazil.To determine how this exposure was impacting the species, the researchers looked at post mortem reports and animal stranding records relating to sea turtles in Queensland. From that information they were able to deduce the role of plastic in causing death - if an animal had ingested more than 200 pieces of plastic, death was inevitable. Fourteen pieces meant a 50% chance of dying - while one piece gave a 22% chance of mortality. Because of their digestive tract, they don't regurgitate anything, lead author Dr Britta Denise Hardesty from Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), told BBC News. If it ends up in the wrong place, even one little thin, filmy piece of plastic can block that canal and mean that nothing can pass and ultimately the blockage can result in death.As well as causing blockages, harder pieces caused internal injuries which often lead to death as well. The research team also found that younger turtles News Today, Breaking News, Breaking news today, US News, UK News, trump news, World news

Hi, Sea Fans! Thanks for watching Mermaid Linden's Mermaid Minute Episode #21: SEA TURTLES :) Please SUBSCRIBE so you always know about my NEW UNDERWATER VIDEOS! Mermaid Minute is my ocean educational series for kids of all ages hosted by a real life mermaid, Linden Wolbert a true mermaid. My wish is to provide free, high-quality and FUN ocean "edutainment" for anyone with access to a computer :) Let's learn about SEA TURTLES!! * There are 7 species of marine sea turtles: Leatherback, Green, Loggerhead, Kemp's Ridley, Hawksbill, Flatback, and Olive Ridley sea turtles. * Six of these are listed as endangered, so we MUST do our part to protect them! * The leatherback sea turtle is the largest at 6-9 feet in length and up to 1,500 pounds! * Some sea turtles eat meat when they are young then become plant-eaters as adults. Others are strictly vegetarians or carnivores their whole lives, depending on their jaw structures. *You can help sea turtles by avoiding single –use plastics, since turtles often confuse jellyfish for plastic, which can kill them if they accidentally eat it. * A Mommy sea turtle will swim to the same beach where she was born, and lay 50 to 200 eggs at night, guided by the moon. Her baby turtles will hatch in about 60 days and might just be the cutest thing on earth! *Only 10% will survive to adulthood, so people all over the world are taking measures to help sea turtles by roping off beaches and creating nurseries to help them thrive from the moment they are born And that's a SEA TURTLE in a MERMAID MINUTE! This web series was made possible thanks to www.KICKSTARTER.com and all of my amazing friends, family and sea fans who put their sand dollars toward making ocean education FREE online for kids and adults everywhere :) Body Glove is our main sponsor. www.bodyglove.com/mermaidlinden FOLLOW MERMAID LINDEN ONLINE!

Endangered Ocean Life – Sea Turtles, Endangered Species What do Elk Horn Corals, Leatherback Sea Turtles, and Hawaiian Muck Seals all have in common? They are all protected under US Endangered Species Act. The Endangered Species Act of 1973 is one of the most effective conservation laws in the United States using science based management plan it has prevented the extinction of 99 percent of the species it protects. So how does it work? The US Congress put the US Fish and Wildlife service in charge of land and fresh water species and NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service in charge of marine species. These agencies can review the status of these species on their own or concerned citizens or groups can petition the agencies to list a species, after a review process a species can be listed as either Endangered or Threatened is necessary. Endangered means the species is in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant part of its range. Threatened means the species is likely to become endangered in the foreseeable future. If the species is listed as Endangered it is illegal to kill, harass, harm or capture it without special permission. Threatened species may be given many of the same protections, once the species is listed the agency in charge can designate the species Federally Protected Habitat, they will also develop a recovery plan to guide government and private efforts to help the species and get it out of danger. Today the Endangered Species Act protects over 2,140 listed species. The US Fish and Wildlife Service and NOAA continue to develop new technologies and management approaches to insure the Endangered Species Act stays effective and that endangered species populations can rebound and their habits can recover. A healthy ocean needs strong and sustainable populations of all marine species and the endangered species act has gone a long way to keeping it that way. Did you know that Sea Turtles have been living on Planet Earth since the time of the dinosaurs, around 110 million years. There are 7 different species of sea turtles, 6 of which Green, Hawksbill, Kemp’s Ridley, Leatherback, Loggerhead, and the Olive Ridley can be found throughout the ocean in both warm and cool waters, the 7th species the Flatback lives only in Australia. What’s amazing about sea turtles is after years of living and traveling the open ocean they return to the nesting grounds of where they were born to lay their eggs, in their voyage from nesting to feeding grounds some species will travel more than 1000 miles. But life is filled with danger for the sea turtle especially the hatchlings, on the beach birds, crabs, raccoons and even foxes will eat the hatchlings, and if the hatchlings make it to the ocean they are still tasty snacks for sea birds and fish. However the greatest threats for sea turtles are not from natural predators they are from humans, accidental catch in commercial fisheries or entanglement in marine debris are a serious threat to sea turtles as well as destruction of beach habitat , harvesting and poaching for meat and eggs and even boat strikes. But people aren’t just sitting by, nations are working together to protect and conserve sea turtles. In 1981 an international agreement made it illegal to trade all 7 species of sea turtle and their eggs or meat internationally, governments are figuring out ways to reduce bycatch such as requiring new designs in fishing gear and changes to fishing practices to make them less likely to capture turtles. Marine protected areas are being established in important sea turtle habitats. Conservation organizations are working with local communities to help change fishing practices as well as transition incomes away from turtle harvesting and toward turtle tourism . Other local efforts include working to reduce sources of marine debris, monitoring sea turtle nests and protecting them from poaching, and passing laws that prevent irresponsible development of known nesting beaches. A healthy ocean depends on sea turtles and sea turtles need our help.
