Kemp's Ridley Sea Turtles: Travelers in the Gulf of Mexico
Kemp's ridley sea turtle - a distinct species for the last three to six million years - is the most critically endangered sea turtle species in the world. Officially listed as endangered on December 2, 1970, Kemp's ridleys had been abundant in the Gulf of Mexico only a few decades before. Humans caused the decline of the Kemp's ridley, but special efforts taking place at Padre Island National Seashore are helping bring this species back from the brink of extinction. This pamphlet will help you understand these fascinating animals. 12 pages.
