Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtle: Lepidochelys kempii
The smallest and most endangered of all marine turtles.
The Jupiter Loggerhead Marine Life Center has 2 new turtles to add to the collection being rehabilitated at the facility in Florida.
After speaking with Sandy of Loggerhead MLC, she claims that she does not know why they are on the beaches of Jupiter. This is not the Habitat they normally cruise in.
Several various species of juvenile sea turtles are in the TUBS at the new facility, mostly from Brevard County.

Check it out this weekend; go see the Kemp’s Ridley turtles.
How to secretly go green, 3 simple steps…
1. Better organize you travel, consolidate trips, plan and map a circle back to home, or consider alternative means of travel.
2. Use less water (restaurants in the 1980’s installed foot peddles to lower their rising water bills, if you walked away the spill would stop.) So, while waiting for HOT water from a faucet, save and use the cold water for flushing the toilet or irrigation.
3. Recycle even more, purchase recycled materials and products, promote recycling.
Once ‘out of the green closet’, become an eco-activist. 2 easy steps…
1. Get involved, read, listen, and learn. Participate in the Green Blog Day, sign petitions to legislature that are on-line. ( like the slaughter of Sea Turtles in the Bahamas)
2. Promote Awareness to make legislative changes, and be heard. Utilize media, forums, blogs, eco t-shirts, green license plates, DMV Enviro-license plates, bumper stickers, write letters to congressmen, governors, senators, DEP, DOA, Town Meetings, Rally’s, Social Forums, and Environmental Clean-up campaigns.

EarthRehab summary of the Meet the Scientist Lecture
“Climate Change and Effects on Coastal Communities”
Dr Stephan Harzen of TARAS Oceanographic Foundation introduced the panel of scientist.
Dr. Boukerrou of Florida Center for Environmental Studies discussed the Green House effect and the fact that Carbon emissions have been on a steady and gradual increase in our atmosphere. He then states the IPCC expects the Greenhouse gases to double in 50years.
Dr Marr of the Perry Institute for Marine Science discussed Acidifying the Oceans. As Ocean waters temperature rise, the chemical balance that is needed to sustain life is offset. The needed Calcium for shellfish and invertebrates diminishes and Ph levels rise to form an acidic body of water. Predicts a 60% decrease in active coral reef ecosystems by 2030.
Dr. Ray McAllister of Florida Atlantic University asks the Question” What are we going to do??” Get active, be heard, make a change for the environment today. Brings the threat of Methane to the atmospheric problem. Answers the question later, will Florida will be consumed by the Ocean? No, but potable water will be the #1 concern for the residents.
The discussion did not center and evolve around politics, and 150+ attendees were treated to factual information to assist others with realizing the threats of Global Warming.
Dr. Marr of Perry is composing a more in-depth synopsis of this community awareness program. It will be featured in the future on this web-log site.
Environmental T-shirts and Green License plates will be the Feature at the International Coastal Clean-up final Event for Florida.
Come join EarthRehab in Torry Island October 28, 2007 from 9am- noon. We will be cleaning up the Intercoastal of Lake Okeechobee. You hear about Lake Okeechobee in the News every day in S. Florida, now experience it first-hand. Local citizens of Pahokee and Belle Glade are urged to attend.
