It’s World Turtle Day

 Turtles are fascinating creatures, and really cool dudes!

Turtles don’t have visible ears but they have eardrums covered by skin. They hear best at low frequencies and their sense of smell is excellent. Sea turtles don’t have teeth, but their jaws have modified beaks suited to their diet. Their vision underwater is good but they’re nearsighted out of water. Their streamlined bodies and large flippers make them remarkably adapted to life at sea. However, sea turtles maintain close ties to land. Females must come ashore to lay their eggs in the sand so all sea turtles begin their lives as tiny hatchlings on land.
 
All of us can help turtles by taking action to reduce, reuse and recycle by making sure that we dispose of trash properly, by becoming wildlife-friendly shoppers and by observing turtles and other wildlife from a safe distance taking care not to disturb them or their habitats. Florida is one of the 2 largest nesting area in the world for the state’s official salt water reptile, the Loggerhead sea turtle. The area between Cape Canaveral and Sebastian Inlet attracts about 25,000 females.
 
Like most people, I really love sea turtles. My friends, Lois and Kacee, after a girl’s trip to Abaco, Bahamas had a ceramic Sea Turtle made for me that I proudly display in the Barefoot Sister office. Turtles are a favorite charm of people who love nautical jewelry. Mother Nature has done a great job on this Surf-Tumbled Seaglass Turtle Bracelet. 30 pieces of flawless aqua, brown, green, white and pink Seaglass, tiny turtles and sterling silver accents make up this 7 1/2 “ gift from the sea and your Barefoot Sister.
