loggerheadmarinelifecenter Pollution in our oceans not only affects marine life, but the livelihood of humans. The 113 volunteers that came out for the Blue Friends Society Beach Clean-Up collected 71.7 lbs of trash, including 7.3 lbs of shoes. 1w

loggerheadmarinelifecenter Each jar contains plastic found in a wash-back #seaturtle hatchling. Last year all of the wash-back hatchlings that did not survive had ingested plastic. Take action to #clean our #oceans and learn more ways to protect endangered species by joining us this Saturday for our Blue Friends Society Beach Clean-Up and #EndangeredSpeciesDay. #conservation #savewildlife. For more information on the Blue Friends Society Beach Clean-Up visit: https:/www.marinelife.org/event/blue-friends-beach-clean-up-5-21/ 2w
  •   loggerheadmarinelifecenter @iddangelo The contents in the jars are plastic pieces there were removed from post-hatchling sea turtles that died in rehab or died before the got to LMC. Necropsies (turtle autopsies) are done on all sea turtle patients at LMC by our trained veterinary staff. 1w

  •   balloons_blow Thanks for the reply @loggerheadmarinelifecenter! Will there be any reports available to the public who are not attending the conference? Confused about the Zoo Vet Tech conference... Is Loggerhead a zoo? Thx for your help. 1w
  •   loggerheadmarinelifecenter @balloons_blow Loggerhead Marinelife Center falls into the category of Zoos, Aquariums, and Science Centers. In this classification we would fall under a Science Center. As of right now no reports are available to the general public, however within the next few months we will post a brief article through our e-newsletter. 6d

loggerheadmarinelifecenter Green turtles are here!!! LMC #biologists documented the first #greenturtle crawl of the season in our survey area this morning! ⛱ Unfortunately, it was a false crawl. False crawls are often caused by human activity on the beach and occur when #seaturtles return to the #ocean prior to laying eggs. Please remember if you encounter a sea turtle nesting on the beach to remain a respectful distance behind her and avoid using flashlights or cell phones. The best way to witness a nesting sea turtle is to sign up for our Turtle Walk program at www.marinelife.org.

loggerheadmarinelifecenter We hope that you all are having a relaxing #weekend. Did you know that #seaturtles are air breathing reptiles and must come to the surface to breathe? Please stay alert if out #boating this weekend and be sure to wear your #polarized #sunglasses! 🛥😎 #projectshield #loggerheadmarinelifecenter #conservation #ocean 2w

loggerheadmarinelifecenter Another successful #seaturtle #rescue! The turtle was rescued on the @junobeachpier at 7:50 this morning with fishing line wrapped around a front flipper. In addition to the entanglement, the turtle is chronic debilitated and will be staying in our #hospital for further treatment. #loggerheadmarinelifecenter 3w

loggerheadmarinelifecenter Each morning, while conducting beach nesting surveys, our #research crew has to play detective and figure out what the turtles did the night before. How many tracks do you see??? #loggerheadmarinelifecenter #seaturtle 3w

loggerheadmarinelifecenter Fishermen and pier staff on the @junobeachpier worked together this past weekend to rescue this loggerhead #seaturtle that was accidentally hooked. The turtle was transported to our hospital where veterinary staff were able to remove one hook from the mouth and another from the esophagus. The turtle was otherwise healthy and released this morning. Thank you to all who helped with its rescue!
