|As America is mesmerized http://www.raidersrookiesproshop.com/art-shell-raiders-jersey/ , and outraged, by the events in the Gulf of Mexico, many are learning about endangered sea turtles for the first time. However, most people know virtually nothing about these amazing animals.
Marine turtles began swimming the oceans of the world about 100 million years ago. Their ancient ancestors were land animals who went to the Seven Seas before there were Seven Seas. Along with crocodiles, these are the most ancient of reptiles.
Imagine mighty Mount Everest, the world's tallest mountain in the mighty Himalayas. Sea turtles were swimming the oceans for some 35,000,000 generations before the Himalayas appeared on earth.
These beings swim every sea except the frozen Antarctic and Arctic. Once, the sheer numbers of these marine reptiles were so seemingly without end that lost sailors sometimes found land by listening for sea turtles paddling towards nesting grounds.
Alas, those numbers are no more. Today, man's indiscriminate coastline development and wanton destruction of their nests have put these creatures at risk. For many years, millions have been in South America to makestylish Italian combs, and expensive shoes. When "I Love Lucy" began airing http://www.raidersrookiesproshop.com/amari-cooper-raiders-jersey/ , there were still so many nesting turtles in Mexico that a billion eggs a year were being laid. Within four decades, so many turtles were killed that only two turtles came ashore one nesting season. And, that slaughter was taking place across the planet.
But, world conservation organizations are working to turn around the decline turtle populations. Additionally, in many ways at the forefront of this battle for survival is Costa Rica and Costa Rica ecotourism.
Conservation groups and researchers have begun tagging pelagic turtles like the green sea turtle in remote places like Costa Rica's Cocos Island. Some turtles are fitted with satellite transmitters while others bear flipper tags in an effort to track their movements and we now know that some species roam across thousands and thousands of miles of oceans, from tropical waters to the deep waters off Newfoundland, Canada.
