At Our Mercy

Abstract:
Sea turtles, especially the most common one--the loggerhead--that live along the state's coast are becoming threatened and in need of help by mankind. This presents an ironic situation because humans, the only group with the skills to help turtle survive, are also the group that inflicts the most harm to them. For example, plastic bottle strips tossed into the ocean where turtle get entangled or eat them and large gill nets used by fishermen all are threats to the turtles.
