Sea Turtle Day!
Today I'm going to be giving a talk at my local library about sea turtle conservation. Mostly some fun facts about our local turtles, who are nesting now, and advice on how to stop tourists from messing with the nests. Also a plea to pick up plastic trash, which our loggerheads eat and choke on, or starve to death from, having tummies full of trash instead of good food. Bringing a bunch of books, bumper stickers, and my own signature loggerhead painting, hope it goes well!
Can't think of a connection between loggerheads and lithops, except the letter "l", and the fact that they're both amazing species that need good caretaking in our fast-changing world.... What are some of your favorite amazing creatures, apart from Lithops??
