“Shellebrate” World Sea Turtle Day ~June 16th


So as you have likely noticed from the home page of my blog.  Scuba diving is a passion of mine and I am mesmerized when I encounter sea turtles in the wild.  The photograph of the sea turtle on my blog home page is one that I took two years ago while diving in about 40 feet of water off the west coast of Grand Cayman Island.

Thursday, June 16th, is World Sea Turtle Day.  According to Marine Science Today, it is a day “to honor and highlight the importance of sea turtles.” The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has extended the celebrations to include the whole week.  You can”shellebrate” Sea Turtle Week by surfing through all the information and videos on these websites below.  After a little study perhaps you can answer… “What species of sea turtle did Mrs. Caldwell encounter while diving?”
