Sea Turtles seem to have a mesmerizing affect on people, especially those who have the chance to see them up close. So mesmerizing that the Turtles change the way some people live their lives. Michael J. Fox discusses in his memoir called “Lucky Man” of his encounter with a Sea Turtle while snorkelling changed his life. He swam with the Sea Turtle for ours and realized he needed to change the way he lived his life. The experience Michael lived could be due to the fact that the Ocean and Sea Turtles can change the way people think.
But the only 7 species of Sea Turtles in the Ocean are all threatened or endangered from going extinct. There are organizations and people out there who dedicate their lives to saving Sea Turtles. Dr. Chris Pincetich, a Marine Biologist at the Sea Turtle Restoration Project of the Turtle Island Restoration Network, is one of those people and he is on the program today to discuss all things Sea Turtle.
