The casual lifestyle of residents in Destin, Florida and along the 30a corridor is stimulated by the wonderful beaches and of course the incredible marine life. Sea turtles are one of the most intriguing types of marine life that Destin and 30a corridor have to offer and the survival of these turtles is paramount to the balance of nature. The Kemp ridley sea turtles are amongst some of the most interesting and most endangered of these turtles. in the year 1947 a film maker filmed almost 40,000 females nesting along the beaches of Mexico and now it is believed that only 1000 females of nesting age are still alive today.
This perplexing situation is known to be caused by over harvesting the turtles eggs by humans and other dangers including entrapment in fisherman's trawling nets, destruction of nesting area's and predators such as birds and mammals.CITES (The Convention of International Trade for Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Wild Flora) is a treaty created in 1973 for the protection of endangered species making it against the law to harm any sea turtle or it's eggs. In addition, The National Marine Fisheries Service funded millions to create and distribute the TED a small device implanted in trawling nets by fisherman allowing sea turtles to escape so they would not drown in the nets. All eight sea turtle species are on the endangered and threatened wildlife list.
It is believed that the Kemp ridley turtles travel two major routes in the Gulf of Mexico. One of those routes in the Gulf of Mexico takes the turtles to the South Eastern States of the United States. Some sea turtles are known to travel at least 1500 miles to nest. If you see a sea turtle on shore and it appears to be crying do not worry. The secretion comes from glands designed to expel excess sea salt from the turtle and helps to protect the turtles eyes from sand as the turtle prepares the nest.
The sea turtle hatch-lings race to the water as quickly as possible in search of safety from preditors. Most species hatch at night though some hatch during the day. They race for their survival in attempt to continue life given to them by ancestors over 200 million years ago. It is believed by scientist that all sea turtle species are descendants of one kind.
Some sea turtles can measure up to 5 feet and can weigh up to 600 pounds with the ability to remain under water for up to two hours.The leatherback turtle can dive thousands of feet enabling him to reach treats such as jellyfish. The leatherback is the largest sea turtle species and has been charted diving as deep as almost 3300 feet. Sea turtles have been known to cross breed except for the leatherback and the flatback.
