What happened to this turtle? What are we seeing on its stomach?

I live in Amelia Island where we have many leatherback turtles that come here to nest. Our island is very active to protect, count and educate the residents about these amazing creatures! #ameliaisland

I so feel the vulnerability of this turtle and the concern from the caretakers.

Sad, shocking, irresponsible, unimaginable horrors caused by such senseless greed and selflessness by human nature, greed and self motivation. At the same time, through human knowledge, information, skill, understanding of the monster problems generally of their creation we can eventually repair and improve some of the situations. Let us hope and pray a united motivation by human beings generally can help restore some of the lives of the natural wildlife of this miraculous planet. Let us pray this horror can be turned around to restoring nature's wonder, the life of wildlife on planet earth. Our prays go to the dedicated people who work tirelessly to assist the restoration and support of wildlife on this planet. 🌐🌿🙏🦏🐧🦅🍀🙏🌐

👏👏👏. Heading to Wellfleet cape cod to help the Audubon group there this weekend for sea turtle patrol hoping to not find any but likely to find cold stunned sea turtles washed ashore. Really hope to not find any frozen. Continued climate change issues. :(

What causes a sea turtle to become non-releasable? @cristinamittermeier  ❤️

We as a species have done this. Shame on us.

I can't think of any higher calling in life than being the people who are dedicated to saving all kinds of animals both on land and in the oceans. And the more we see this kind of photographs that people are taking care, the more we hope that human beings stop wounding animals and start saving them and cherishing them instead.

Shame on governments and corporations that allow the recklessness of our planet.

This is heartbreaking. I feel the pain of animals suffering more than that of humans.
