Yikes! Do you know the leatherback sea turtles are at the midst of extinction? Yes they are, and we are the ones who are responsible for it. Surprised? Don't be. Over the years we have silently been killing them for oil, meat and eggs. There were no regulations or laws in place to protect them. Suddenly we are at face with a problem. We are left with just 30,000 of them and we are still asking ourselves, how did it happen. Its time for a wake up call.They need us and the earlier we realize it, the sooner we will be able to save them from extinction.
The leatherbacks have been in existence since the time of the dinosaurs and play an important role in the marine cycle. They are facinating creatures and deserve to live in peace with humans. Ever since the scientists brought up the extinction issue, various not-for-profit organizations took the concern with the federal and local goverment. There is active participation now and laws are being enacted to save the species. But making laws is not the end. We are the ones who have to put them into place and implement them.We have to save the leatherbacks.
