2 Thumbs Up Award goes to SeaTurtles.org and One World One Ocean
These two organizations and their dedicated volunteers have saved the habitat off our western coast for the leatherbacks at last!
The news about new protections for Pacific leatherbacks along the U.S. West Coast made major headlines and is gaining momentum! Nearly 42,000 square miles of ocean along the coasts of California, Oregon and Washington will be permanently protected for these ancient ocean dwellers. The new protections take effect Feb. 27, 2012.
