Why you should be more worried about sea turtles in Florida’s ocean environment
By now you probably know that sea turtles are critically endangered and in dire straits in Florida.
But do you know how many sea turtles live in the state’s waters?
According to Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) data, there are just under 3,000 sea turtles living in the waters of the state.
That’s a fraction of the nearly 10 million sea turtles that live on land.
And, as you might imagine, it’s a problem that needs to be addressed.
For decades, the Florida Sea Turtle Foundation has been working to save the state and the oceans from the impacts of the ocean, and to help people protect the environment.
While we’re at it, let’s get rid of the phrase “marine protected” and replace it with “marine sanctuary.”
The name “marine” comes from the fact that the vast majority of the marine life in the world lives in the ocean.
So, when you hear “marine-protected,” you’re likely thinking of marine sanctuaries, or marine sanctums, or maybe just protected areas.
The reality is, you’re looking at a sea turtle population that’s down to just under 300,000.
To put it in perspective, in 1980 there were nearly 1,500 sea turtles alive in Florida alone.
The total number of sea turtles at that time was about 1.5 million.
The population is now about 1,200, and that number has been steadily declining for the past 20 years.
So if you want to see a population in decline, it means we need to address the problem and protect the marine environment.
To protect marine environments, we need more land-based landfills, more plastic bag bans, and more marine debris collection.
But the reality is that if you don’t have a marine sanctuary, the threat to the sea turtles will continue to grow.
The current status of the sea turtle In 2000, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) announced that the U,S.
Endangered Species Act (ESA) required that all marine life, including sea turtles, be protected from being swept out of the water and into landfilling ponds, where they could be flushed out of habitat.
The ESA also requires that all of the migratory shorebirds, birds and other marine mammals be protected.
The United States has about 1 million miles of coastline, and over 80 percent of that coastline is located within the continental United States.
But according to FWS, the number of land-bound species in the U.,S.
is only about 1 percent of what it should be.
In other words, it takes roughly 4,000 acres of land to protect one sea turtle.
And the problem is getting worse.
According to the United States Marine Conservation Service (USMCS), the number one cause of sea turtle mortality in Florida is human-induced habitat destruction, such as industrial development, overfishing, and industrial waste treatment.
But habitat destruction and overfarming also contribute to the decline of sea otters.
According the USMCS, about 70 percent of the Florida’s population is located on land, and 85 percent of those otters live on the ocean floor.
In fact, it has been estimated that as much as 40 percent of Florida’s otters depend on the sea for their primary diet.
So as sea turtles and otters continue to be killed in Florida, the numbers of sea creatures in the marine habitat are expected to increase.
And this isn’t just a problem in Florida—the number of the world’s ocean creatures is estimated to be in the range of 15 to 50 million, according to the Sea Turtle Conservation Foundation (STCF).
And that’s just for mammals.
The US Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission estimates that there are about 60,000 marine species and more than 100,000 terrestrial vertebrates in the wild.
These are the animals that live in our oceans and live in habitats around the world.
The problem is, the animals are being kept out of those habitats, and they’re being destroyed by humans.
So when you think about the problem of sea life in our coastal waters, you can imagine the frustration that people in Florida feel.
In Florida, people believe that they should be able to come in and take care of the environment for which they work and that they shouldn’t have to do anything to protect it.
But in reality, the fact is, it doesn’t take a scientist to figure out that there’s a lot of work to be done.
If you’re not aware of the problem, here are a few ways that you can help save sea turtles.
Donate to Sea Turtle Sanctuary The nonprofit Sea Turtle Rescue International (STRI) is dedicated to protecting marine turtles and helping them in their natural habitat.
It is located at the University of Central Florida and has an incredible program of outreach and education.
