In recent years, conservation groups, like the Herring Alliance, a coalition of environmental groups [which includes Blue Ocean Institute], have been fighting to get protections for the little fish in the sea – the menhadens, herrings, and anchovies.
For tens of millions of years, Leatherback turtles have been roaming the oceans, traveling from cold arctic waters to the tropics. Females come ashore to lay their eggs on tropical and subtropical beaches worldwide. The largest of all the sea turtles [some weigh as much as a small car], they are the only sea turtle that doesn’t have a hard shell. Instead they have a leathery, soft back, as their name suggests.
