Baby turtles are not only rare, but also very cute.
It is always nice to hear that an almost extinct look is restored.
It is wonderful to be a witness to the revival of the disappeared angry appearance. On the tiny island of Pinson on Galapagos, researchers for the first time in more than a century discovered ten young, just hatched saddle turtles at the beginning of last month. There may be more, because their size and disguise make it difficult to search for them.
They found that giant turtles can again multiply in the wild!
This species was destroyed by whales and invasive rats, arriving on the sea in the 17th and 18th centuries, but it was this rat that had a long -term predatory effect on its cubs.
The authorities attempted to weed out black rats from Pinson, and in 2012 the island was declared free from rats. And attack
Since the creation of the Galapagos National Park in 1959, a population of turtles has increased from about 100 to 200 “very old individuals” to the current population, which is estimated at “more than 500”.
Nice to hear! 100 years is a long time to return!
The discovery of rare newborn babies of turtles is the real evidence that the conservation efforts can bring positive results in self -adulthood, hard work, support and human heart.
It is incredible to observe the spread of these beautiful turtles.
May God grant them all health!
I hug and pray for these small creatures.
