Don't be disrespectful about young people today. Yes, they inhabit a different environment. Yes, they do appear to have lost the "manners" that we think we had. Yes, there does seem to be an lack of appreciation for "deferred reward". BUT there is less racism, homophobia, sexism and a more accepting approach to differences including mental and physical difficulties. AND they are growing up with a much more uncertain future than we thought we had. Old Farts, lets give them a break. 424 Share

He actually made it into the water, but so did He was stuck in commercial fishing line. It was tight, but luckily quite fresh so no real damage yet. The big fight for our organization @oceanconservationnamibia is how to prevent this from ending up in the ocean in the first place.... @goproza @leathermantools @oceanconservationnamibia #sealrescue #animalrescue #oceanpollutionawareness View all 366 comments
The reptiles had been wrapped in plastic and were found during a routine inspection at the main airport on the island of Baltra. Ten of them had died, officials said. One of the biggest threats to Galapagos tortoises is illegal trading for animal collectors and exotic pet markets. The tortoises seized at the airport on Baltra are thought to be less than three months old. Officials combatting wildlife trafficking say hatchling-sized juveniles can fetch sums of more than $5,000 per animal. It is believed the smugglers wrapped the tortoises in plastic to immobilise them but the X-ray machine's operator at the airport nevertheless grew suspicious.
