Very interesting article, but the title is a bit too optimistic, don't you think?

These are beautiful creatures and something needs to be done to save them! They are part of an ecosystem and if they fall away from that system everything else needs to be rearranged! Save the turtles NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
