Artist's Description

featured in PEACE, LOVE & TRANQUILITY & Clouds

July-September is nesting time for several species of endangered sea turtles. They make their yearly travels from across the seas and return to the sands of Sanibel Island, Florida to lay eggs during the summer nights. Human interruptions are regulated and some actions forbidden. One cannot have lights while walking the beaches after 9PM or before 7AM as light can disrupt the nesting. Each morning volunteers assist the nature rangers in searching for newly constructed nests and marking them off with bright yellow tape to prevent careless people from damaging the nests. One of these nesting areas can be seen in the lower right quarter of this image of a thundercloud building over the Gulf of Mexico offshore.

The image has not been altered, just presented as a reminder that we share this big blue bubble Earth with many creatures and we must respect the needs of all, for all are interconnected.
