GREAT NEWS DEVOTEES!
Thanks to everyone and their positive actions, Green Sea Turtles are no longer considered endangered! This is HUGE! Green Sea Turtles were first added to the Endangered Species List in 1978. Through successful conservation movements, petitions, and public education, Green Sea Turtles are beginning to flourish once again!
While there were only a handful of Green Sea Turtle nests in 1978, there are now 2,250 nesting females in just Florida alone! Although these turtles are no longer endangered, they are still considered threatened. We need to continue to help the sea turtles in order for ALL species to flourish again!
From all of us on the Devocean Team, we want to thank you for helping to make a difference for our oceans and the lives of sea turtles! Let us continue the great work!
