  • Just found a leatherback turtle 🐢 crawling up the moonlit beach to lay her eggs 🥚 tonight. Awe-inspiring  moment to witness live. I called security at the hotel and they sent a crew out to protect the area and rope it off. Watched her crawl above the high tide line, dig a huge hole with her flippers, lay the eggs, and then scoot back out to sea—head popping up only once above the surf before she was gone.

  • Not done just yet. I’m still tweaking the background, but using inks on burlap is whole new ballgame. I’m noticing that I don’t like that paint dripping down from his bottom shell...looks like he’s bleeding😮....I wish the colors were showing true because it’s all kinds of vibrant #fuscia 😍... on another note: I spy Peachy girl.... how does my dog always know when to come out for pictures?! 🤣🤗 #staugustine #staugustineartist #burlap #mixedmedia #ink #art #seaturtle #seaturtleart #oceanart #oceanlove

  • I commissioned a College Station artist and friend, J. Vincent Scarpace, to create a sea turtle painting for my husband's birthday next month.  Just received the sneak preview.  Can't wait to get the real thing! Shhhh, mums the word! It's a surprise!  #paintingsofinstagram #painting #seaturtle #art #ipaintfish #katsjourney

  • Happy Friday! We hope everyone is enjoying holiday freedom like this little guy is enjoying life in the wild!

This right here is a Hawksbill (Eretmochelys imbricata) hatchling coming up for air 😮

Sea turtles have lungs located right on their carapace. As such, they cannot breathe underwater and need to come to the surface for oxygen.

With increasing traffic in our seas, sea turtles can get hit by boat strikes and their propellers.. Usually, the carapace gets the most impact, causing damage to their lungs. These lesions can cause lung infection or pneumonia and in some cases can lead to what is known as "bubble butt." This occurs when the turtle has fixed air trapped.

For this reason, turtles with carapace (top shell) injuries often become "floaters" which means they have trouble with their floatation. This affects natural behaviour such as swimming, diving for food, protection, and mating.

For a more detailed example, check out the latest post by the @oliveridleyproject about Florence, an Olive ridley sea turtle (Lepidochelys olivacea) in rehabilitation.

Be mindful when you are out at sea and keep an eye out for our wild sea turtles! Especially near the coastlines as this is where juvenile sea turtles tend to forage. 📸: @benjhicks
