Shorelines all around the world are being developed to the point of being uninhabitable by species who rely on them. With the warming oceans, waters are rising and shorelines are getting thinner and thinner, which means sea turtle nesting sites are being squeezed into smaller areas.
This is why sea turtles need people to speak up for them. "Sea turtles need voices," Godfrey said. "Voices from voters, from citizens — they rely on us."
The turtle found on the airstrip was reportedly in good health and so was led back to the water.
But she will be back, Godfrey said: "Her and her friends."
