Today Is A Marine Life Threefer

       A Green Turtle Hatchling      A Loggerhead Hatchling      A Right Whale Mother and Calf
First, May 1st is the beginning of Sea Turtle Nesting Season for several Counties on Florida's Atlantic Coast and from now until October 31st, the lights of residents must be off at night on the beach.
This is to help avoid confusion and/or death for the babies of the four species of sea turtles who will be hatching and heading out to sea for the first time during this period.
Second, there is now serious concern that Global Warming may be helping to speed up the
demise of the already critically Endangered Right Whale.
And third, high noise levels due to seismic testing in the waters off of the Atlantic Coast
are drowning out the normal everyday activities of marine life, both dolphins and whales.
There is a petition here for you to read and hopefully sign:
