Follow the Moon

After reading the book Follow the Moon by Sarah Weeks last night, along with Turtle in the Sea by Jim Arnosky, I thought this would be a great day to post a couple of articles on Sea Turtles. The first one is entitled “Endangered Turtles Saved from Fishery” by Jake Richardson over at Care2.

The other one is actually an action that you can take (as I already have) for Australian Sea Turtles over at the Sea Turtle Restoration Project entitled “Take Action for Australia’s Sea Turtles and the Kimberley”. It also has a link to the turtle’s nesting pathway that I really liked.

Is spring right around the corner?

While I know spring is not just right around the corner, at least we’ll get a peek at it these next few days. That said though and with winter still hanging around, I thought this article “Cold Jumps Arctic ‘Fence,’ Stoking Winter’s Fury” by Justin Gillis at the New York Times. Good reading

And while I’m trying not to look ahead, the article “Water Hazard on the Plains” by Joe Barrett at the Wall Street Journal might just be a warning of what’s to come. Here’s hoping it’s not.

Funny how these things happen

During the day I came across a couple more articles on Sea Turtles. The first one is “Cold-Stunned Green Sea Turtles Rescued Along Texas Coast” by Heather Carr at EcoScraps. With all the cold weather they’re having, that’s not a surprise unfortunately.

The other one is “Sea Turtles and the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill” by Cutler Cleveland at the The Encyclopedia of Earth. This one however is man-made not mother nature.
