Sea Turtles On the Road

Another long distance traveler to marvel at. This turtle traveled 12,000 km (7,456 miles) in 357 days, according to the Daily Star. That's huge.

Like the Atlantic coast turtle journey described here last month, if the path is used by other turtles, let's establish their routes on a map of the ocean and restrict certain uses on these routes. Call them sea turtle lanes, just like we have shipping lanes, and just like we've designated wildlife crossings and paths on land. This is bound to help the turtles avoid dying in nets and on miles-long lines of hooks.
