Plunder for the Planet

Leatherback Conservation Day!

Happy Leatherback Conservation Day! Did you know that leatherback sea turtles are the only remaining representatives of a family of turtles that traces back more than 100 million years?

In 1982, scientists estimated that there were 115,000 adult female leatherback sea turtles worldwide. Recent estimates have placed the number between 20,000 and 30,000. The Pacific leatherback is in such severe decline that scientists believe they will become extinct in the Pacific Ocean within the next 30 years unless significant actions are taken to protect them very quickly.
