Kemp's Ridley Sea Turtle


The Life of Animals | Kemp's Ridley Sea Turtle | Ridley sea turtles generally prefer hot water, but they live in the water as far north as New Jersey, in the Gulf of Mexico and Florida, often migrate to live in the waters of Louisiana. The range includes the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico.  Then, in the northwest Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico runs as they grow to maturity. These turtles change color as they mature. The breeding season for these turtles is April to August They nest primarily in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas, but sometimes the Father Iceland, Texas, United States. The estimated number of women nesting in 1947 was 89,000, but dropped to about 7702-1985 Women nest three times during the season, from 10 to 28 days between clusters. Incubation lasts 45-70 days. There are, on average, about 110 eggs per clutch.

At least one source also refers to Kemp "turtle grief." In his book The Rescue largest Ridley, Pamela Philips argued the names of fishermen, turtles die after "turned turtle" was observed (rear) embossed. Kemp Ridley Mexico protected the first time in 1960. United States was the first under the Endangered Species Conservation Act Kemp 1970 December 2, 1970 is included, then under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) in 1973. One of the mechanisms used to protect turtles in fishing nets, the turtle excluder device (TED). Since the greatest threat to the population of Kemp Ridley sea turtles are shrimp, connect your device to the shrimp trawl.

In September 2007, Corpus Christi, Texas, wildlife officials found a record 128 Kemp's ridley sea beaches Ridley nesting in Texas, including 81 in North America Padre Iceland (Iceland Padre National Seashore) and four officials Iceland fauna Wild Mustang released 10,594 Kemp Ridley babies along the Texas coast this year. Turtles are popular in Mexico as boot material and food. The Deepwater Horizon oil spill threatens a wide variety of marine life, dolphins blue crabs. April 30, 2010, 10 days after the accident on the Deepwater Horizon, 156 dead sea turtles have been reported, most were Kemp Ridley. Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries biologists and security guards have rescued Kemp Ridley in Grand Isle

Threatened marine species that frequent the Gulf, only the Kemp's ridley is based on the region as a single pool. The general plan is to collect about 70,000 eggs in the nests of sea turtles on the beaches of Alabama and Florida before you swim, and slip into the Deepwater Horizon explosion Louisiana.
