This is the original video! Filmed by Christine Figgener, marine biologist at Texas A&M University. ***WARNING: Graphic Content & Inappropiate/ Strong Language!*** This video shows graphically why plastic waste is detrimental to marine life, especially single-use plastics (such as straws, which are one of the most redundant items). This turtle suffers from an item that is human-made and used by most of us frequently. The research team around Christine Figgener (Texas A&M University) found a male Olive Ridley sea turtle during an in-water research trip in Costa Rica. He had a 10-12 cm PLASTIC STRAW lodged in his nostril and they removed it. SAY "NO" TO PLASTIC STRAWS, AND ANY KIND OF ONE-TIME USE PLASTIC ITEMS!

OUR STORY: My research team found a male Olive Ridley sea turtle during an in-water research trip in Costa Rica. He had a 10-12 cm PLASTIC STRAW lodged in his nostril. After initially thinking that we are looking at a parasitic worm, and trying to remove it to identify it, we cut a small piece off to investigate further and finally identified what we were REALLY looking at. After a short debate about what we should do we removed it with the plier of a swiss army knife which was the only tool available on our small boat (not intended for overnight stays), since we were on the ocean, in a developing country, a few hours away from the coast and several hours away from any vet (probably days from any vet specialised in reptiles, not to mention sea turtles) and x-ray machines. Plus, we would have incurred a penalty (up to time in jail) on ourselves by removing the turtle since that is beyond our research permits. He did very obviously not enjoy the procedure very much, but we hope that he is now able to breath more freely. The blood from the shoulder is from a 6mm skin biopsy we took previously to this event for a genetic study (part of our permitted research), which usually doesn't bleed much, but which started bleeding while restraining the turtle. We disinfected the air passageway with iodine and kept the turtle for observation before releasing him back into the wild. The bleeding stopped pretty much immediately after the removal of the straw, and when we released him, he swam happily away. The turtle very likely swallowed the straw while ingesting other food items and then either expelled the straw together with the redundant sea water through her nostrils, or regurgitated the straw and it ended up in the wrong passageway. The nasal cavity of sea turtles is connected directly to the palate (roof of the mouth) by a long nasopharyngeal duct.

When the weather turns cold for long periods of time, biologists and game wardens prepare for freezing water temperatures to affect wildlife along the coast. In 2011, more than 800 green sea turtles were rescued during one of the longest cold spells in decades in South Texas. The good news is that the large number means that more of the federal and state protected turtles are making their home in Texas bays. Texas Parks and Wildlife has this report. If you see a cold-stunned turtle floating in the water or lying on the shore, it may appear dead but chances are it is not. Experts say you should cover it with a towel and report it to the Sea Turtle Stranding & Salvage Network at 361-949-8173, ext. 226 or page the Animal Rehabilitation Keep at 361-224-0814.

The Kemp's ridley sea turtle nesting range is from Tamaulipas, Mexico to Bolivar, Texas. Females will nest one to three times during the nesting season from April to July with an average clutch size of 100 eggs. This female Kemp's ridley sea turtle is nesting on the beach in Freeport, Texas. These sea turtles typically nest during the daytime on windy days as demonstrated in the video. She is doing the "ridley rumba" by moving her body over the nesting area to cover the nest cavity. As she is leaving the nest area, the turtle will flip sand with all four flippers to further cover the nest before returning to the Gulf of Mexico. There were 99 eggs in this clutch and after an incubation period of about 60 days the hatchlings will be released into the Gulf of Mexico.

Thirty years ago, a film entitled The Heartbreak Turtle began telling the grim details about the Kemps Ridley Sea Turtle. It described how each year 2,000 eggs were given by the people of Mexico to the people of the United States each year to incubate. Then tiny hatchlings were raised by the government for almost a year or head started to give them a greater chance to survive when released back into the Gulf of Mexico. Conservation policies have changed but the work goes on to save the Kemps ridley sea turtles from extinction. Progress is being made but public education is the key to this sea turtles recovery. Nests are increasing on the Texas coast making it important that tourists and residents are vigilant and watch for tracks, nesters and hatchlings during the spring nesting season. A new documentary is needed. The Sea Turtle Restoration Project (STRP) with funding from The Meadows Foundation have completed a number of excellent interviews with scientists and educators who continue working for the preservation of the Kemps ridleys. Additional funding is needed to complete the new version of the Heartbreak Turtle. Donors making significant contributions will be listed in the credits of this film when it is complete. Donations may be made in honor or in memory of family or friends. (STRP is a non-profit organization.)

In these films I'm going to stop speaking about myself and me being all inspiring and shit and rather be real and raw. Share the realities. I am super privileged to travel around the world and direct all these films, and learn new things every day. I want to share these experiences with you as I go, that's my give back. Join me on my journey not to seek happiness, but rather beautiful and some times Gnarly experiences. When getting deep into understanding what's going on in the world with global warming, extinction of wildlife, depletion of renewable resources, war, terrorism and rioting you start to lose hope in what's to come, right. The world seems like a pretty dark place at the moment with everything that's going down. Seems like everything that's beautiful is one day going to die and Decay - which is mostly true. But Is this the attitude that's going to create change - sustain what's left? Let me share a story with you about a group of locals on the tiny island of Zanzibar that are completely unaffected by the media and daily negative information. Green back turtles use to live on the shores of Zanzibar, breed and lay eggs right there in front of the locals, but with the increase of tourism the fisherman had to increase the size of their nets in an attempt to catch more fish in tern catching the sea turtles too, with not knowing any better they would then eat the turtles meat and use their shells for different house hold and protective reasons. Slowly but surely people from the community started realizing a decrease in the amount of sea turtles on the shores of their beaches as well as in their oceans so they started conserving them the local people did this alone without the help of any outsiders. 15 years later they have successfully educated all the fishermen and local people and brought the green back turtle back to its natural habitat. Does this not start to restore your faith in people. A small community like that can completely restore the amount of green back turtles on their shores. Understanding what's going on in the world is crucial being it negative or positive and yes currently there is a lot more negative going down, but don't loose hope in the small positives and the goodness in most people around the world. We are all fighting the same battle at the end of the day so for the most part let's try work together to look after what's left. It's cool to conserve! #cooltoconserve

When fishers put out their trawl nets in the Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic, sea turtles often end up trapped in the nets unintentionally. If the turtles cannot escape, they will drown. This is a major threat to marine turtles and it is known as bycatch. In the 1980s and 1990s, NOAA and the shrimp industry developed turtle excluder devices. These devices direct turtles toward an opening in the shrimp net, so they can escape. Each year NOAA tests new and improved turtle excluder device designs in Panama City, Florida, using loggerhead turtles raised in its Galveston, Texas, lab. The required use of turtle excluder devices has resulted in an almost 100% reduction in turtle deaths due to shrimp nets. NOAA continues to work with fishing industries all around the world to develop new techniques for preventing turtle bycatch and promoting sustainable fishing operations.

http://www.tigresalvaje.com While I was at Tigre Salvaje I got to help Dave dig up a turtle nest and place the eggs in the incubator. There they will be safe from poachers, stray dogs, and raccoon. The average turtle nest contains 90-130 eggs, the average turtle nest also has about zero chance of success unless people like Dave can get to them before the poachers. It was awesome to be able to help in something like this. And because the turtle season is a few months long not only did I get to put some eggs in the incubator, I was able to handle some baby sea turtles that had already hatched. It was an amazing day, and it got even better in the next episode when released some turtles into the ocean.

When fishers put out their trawl nets in the Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic, sea turtles often end up trapped in the nets unintentionally. If the turtles cannot escape, they will drown. This is a major threat to marine turtles and it is known as bycatch. In the 1980s and 1990s, NOAA and the shrimp industry developed turtle excluder devices. These devices direct turtles toward an opening in the shrimp net, so they can escape. Each year NOAA tests new and improved turtle excluder device designs in Panama City, Florida, using loggerhead turtles raised in its Galveston, Texas, lab. The required use of turtle excluder devices has resulted in an almost 100 percent reduction in turtle deaths due to shrimp nets. NOAA continues to work with fishing industries all around the world to develop new techniques for preventing turtle bycatch and promoting sustainable fishing operations.
