Chelonia mydas (green turtle)
🗓 Yesterday was the World Sea Turtle Day.
📸 Close and intense encounter in Akumal, Mexico.
7⃣ Is the remaining number of sea turtle species in the world.
They are threatened by several factors:
🥚 They are oviparous animals and their sex is determined by the temperature at which the egg is found in the nest. This is influenced by climate change and there is an increasing population predominance of females. 🕸 They are also victims of bycatch in fishing practices. 🥩 Their meat and eggs are consumed in some countries.
💡 Many times their spawning beaches are very touristy and the artificial lights at night confuse the spawning females and the young hatchlings.
What can I do❓
✅ If you choose to consume fish, look for it from 'responsible' sources.
✅ Avoid consuming its meat and eggs.
✅ Do not encourage invasive tourism on beaches where reproduction is known to occur.

Tortuga verde
🗓 Ayer fue el Día Mundial de la Tortuga Marina.
📸 Encuentro cercano e intenso en Akumal, México.
7⃣ Es el número restante de especies de tortugas marinas en el mundo.
Se ven amenazadas por diversos factores:
🥚 Son animales ovíparos y su sexo se determina por la temperatura a la que se encuentra el huevo en el nido. Esto es influenciado por el cambio climático y cada vez hay una mayor predominancia poblacional de hembras. 🕸 Además son víctimas de la captura incidental en prácticas pesqueras. 🥩 Su carne y sus huevos son consumidos em algunos países.
💡 Muchas veces sus playas de desove son muy turísticas y las luces artificiales por la noche confunden a las hembras desovantes y a las crías recien nacidas.
Qué puedo hacer❓
✅ Si elegís consumir pescado, busca que sea de fuentes 'responsables'.
✅ Evita consumir su carne y sus huevos.
✅ No alientes el turismo invasivo en playas donde se sabe que ocurre la reproducción.

Hoy es el día mundial de las tortugas marinas 💚 por lo que comparto el avance de Chelonia mydas (tortuga verde) en la que he estado trabajando.
Esta es una de las 5 tortugas marinas que habitan en nuestro país, y todas tienen algún grado de amenaza.

Día Mundial de las Tortugas Marinas 🐢✊ #cheloniamydas #conservation #seaturtle

Nesse dia internacional das tartarugas marinhas (16/06), peço a todos a sensibilização e respeito para com esses animais e seu habitat. O mar não é nosso depósito de lixo e entulhos. Nem tudo que utilizamos é realmente necessário! Reduza, reutilize e recicle o máximo que puderem! Nossa interferência prejudica (e muito) o desenvolvimento dessas e de outras espécies do globo. Vamos amar, cuidar e conservar! ❤️🐢#tartaruga #cheloniamydas #turtle #chelonidae #eretmochelysimbricata #dermochelyscoriacea #lepidochelysolivacea #carettacaretta #lepidochelyskempii #natatordepressus

¿Sabías que las Tortugas Marinas, son consideradas unas de las principales "Especies Paraguas"? Esto quiere decir, que son especies que requieren una gran extensión de territorio para satisfacer sus necesidades, interactuando de manera directa e indirecta con otras especies; al protegerlas, se logran resguardar a todas aquellas que están dentro de su territorio y de cadena alimenticia. A nivel mundial existen 7 especies, en México se desenvuelven todas: Tortuga Verde #cheloniamydas , Tortuga Carey #eretmochelysimbricata , Tortuga Caguama #carettacaretta , Tortuga Golfina #lepidochelis olivacea , Tortuga lora #lipidochelyskempii , Tortuga Prieta #cheloniaagassizii y Tortuga Laúd #dermochelyscoriacea
Hoy es el #diainternacionaldelastortugasmarinas y merecen especial nombramiento, por su participación no sólo en el medio ambiente, si no también desde el punto de vista social y de educación #conservacion #medioambiente #tortugasmarinas #terrafish #celebracion #faunamexicana #exoticvets

Happy world sea turtle day!
Here are some footage of what I did yesterday. I was lucky enough to see 2 different species of sea turtles during snorkeling!
In the first video you can see the critically endangered hawksbill turtle taking a breath and inviting me to swim with her. In the second video you can see a green turtle swimming into the deep water. In the last picture you can see me force feeding a hawksbill turtle that is currently under our care because she didn't want to eat and was losing weight.

Happy world sea turtle day! From when I was part of @georgiaseaturtlecenter and got to help rehab and release sea turtles! .

Happy World Sea Turtle Day!! Currently I'm privileged to be working with fresh water turtles in Canada, but truly have a huge soft spot for sea turtles in our oceans around the globe. I have previously had experiences of working with beauties like this green sea turtle in Costa Rica, to help monitor their nesting populations and hatchling success rates. This gorgeous individual was found while snorkeling in Hawaii on my last trip last year. She was swimming around and feeding within Kapalua Bay and I got to follow her around for a short while. Green sea turtle populations along with many other sea turtle species are a threat due to the high plastic pollution in our oceans. So it's #timeforchange and you can do your part by reducing your plastic use! Say no to plastic straws at restaurants and bars, bring your own reusable shopping bags, carry a spork (spoon, fork, knife) with you so you don't have to use plastic cutlery, and so much more! Let's conserve this planet so we can have #natureforall for us and future generations.

🐢 16 de junho: dia internacional da tartaruga marinha. Elas que tem a liberdade pra desbravar os oceanos e a incrível capacidade de retornar pro seu lar. E essa tatuagem é pra nunca esquecer que o que realmente importa é ter coragem pra seguir adiante, porque o porto seguro pra voltar vai tá sempre por aqui.
Obrigada @fernandamoreiratattoo por essa Chelonia maravilhosa, mais um trabalho teu que eu morri de amores! 💚

⏺16 DE JUNHO É O DIA INTERNACIONAL DAS TARTARUGAS MARINHAS! 🌎🌊🐢
.
Com mais de 100 milhões de anos de evolução, as tartarugas marinhas desempenham um grande papel ecológico no ambiente. 🔄
.
Das 7 espécies existentes, 5 ocorrem em águas brasileiras, deslocando-se desde áreas costeiras a grandes profundidades oceânicas. 🐚 Infelizmente, todas elas estão classificadas como em risco de extinção, tanto na lista oficial brasileira, quanto na Lista Vermelha da União Internacional para a Conservação da Natureza (IUCN). 🚩
.
De cada mil filhotes que nascem, apenas um ou dois conseguem atingir a maturidade, enfrentando inúmeros obstáculos para sobreviver. Além dos predadores naturais, uma das maiores ameaças às populações de tartarugas marinhas são as ações do homem, desde a pesca incidental ao longo de toda a costa, o trânsito de veículos e a destruição de habitat nas praias de desova, a fotopoluição, a poluição dos oceanos e o aquecimento global. 🚯
.
Visando a conservação dessas espécies, o Dia Internacional das Tartarugas Marinhas é celebrado em homenagem ao nascimento do Dr. Archie Carr, um dos pesquisadores mais importantes da área e responsável por grande parte do que se conhece sobre a biologia e o ciclo de vida desses animais. ✅
.
Nosso muito obrigado a todos aqueles que resgatam, reabilitam, cuidam, educam e trabalham para uma maior conservação desses animais incríveis. 💚
.
Feliz Dia Internacional das Tartarugas Marinhas! 🐢

Happy world sea turtle day! There are 7 sea turtles species in the world, and 6 of them are vulnerable or endangered at some level. We are lucky to have 3 of these species nesting on our coast here in Mexico. Here they are all endangered, and that's why we patrol the beach each night of the year looking for nests to keep them protected!
And what do you do to help protect the sea turtles? Tell us in the comments!
(Video: olive ridley hatchlings. 1st photo: green sea turtle hatchlings. 2nd photo: leatherback hatchling.) ¡Feliz día mundial de las tortugas marinas!
Existen 7 especies de tortugas marinas en el mundo, y 6 de esas especies se encuentran vulnerables o amenazadas de extinción! Tenemos suerte de tener 3 especies de tortugas marinas anidando en nuestra playa aquí en México. Todas ellas amenazadas, por eso patrullamos la playa todas las noches del año buscando nidos para protegerlos!
Y tú, ¿Que haces para ayudar a proteger a las tortugas marinas? ¡Cuéntanos en los comentarios! (Video: crías de tortuga golfina. Foto 1: crías de tortuga verde. Foto 2: cría de tortuga laúd.

Green Sea Turtle (Chelonia mydas) - Happy Sea Turtle Week! While we were in Puerto Juarez on an off day we made a last minute decision to catch a van to Akumal Bay on the Yucatan Peninsula. Probably one of the best impulse decisions I’ve ever made. Akumal Bay is famous for its seagrass beds and the turtles that visit them. Every summer Green Sea Turtles migrate to the bay to graze on seagrass and find a mate. Getting to spend time with these dinosaurs was one of the coolest experiences of my life. It was crazy to see such bulky animals (250lbs and up) move so gracefully. It was also incredibly humbling sharing space with animals that have been around for 120 million years. Seeing the measures taken by the people to protect the turtles of Akumal Bay was so encouraging. Seeing conservation action taking place fills my heart. Here’s to another 120 million years of Sea Turtles! #strangelife #strangelifersabroad #greenseaturtle #cheloniamydas #seaturtleweek #loveyourplanet

De no ser por las tortugas marinas no sé dónde estaría, les debo todo, sin lugar a dudas trabajar con ellas fue la mejor decisión que he tomado, nos vemos en la UCR de San José para celebrar este día #DiaMundialDeLasTortugasMarinas Foto: @arianuchis
