                                                  Leatherback turtles, the largest turtles in the world, will be extinct within a few decades if current fishing practices continue.
That is the conclusion of marine researchers speaking at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Denver.

                                                  turtles rule, especailly  T.M.N.T!
to bad there are still people hunting them for their skin.  someone should go hunt them.                                                  

"And shepherds we shall be, for thee my Lord, for thee.
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand.
That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command.
We shall flow a river forth to Thee,
and teeming with souls shall it ever be.
In Nomie Partris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti."
-Boondock Saints

                                                  It's not the hunters that are the problem . It's the people that provide a market for this sort of thing that make me sick.  dry.gif

Why would you bring up a topic thats years old just to say that? That doesn't even contribute to it, it's just some random comment on leatherbacks! angry.gif

But it is quite sad.
