Kemp's Ridleys are Still Washing Up on Long Island's Shores
Kemp’s ridleys are the rarest of the world’s sea turtles and two decades ago were considered doomed. My buddy Sam Wells puts in some volunteer time at the sea turtle rescue center (which I think is this place), on South Padre Island in Texas, and I’m hoping that when he gets a minute he might update us on the status of the Kemp’s ridley. I wrote a long chapter about Kemp’s ridleys for my book but then cut it. It’s here, for those interested in more background.
