A single sea turtle mother may lay eggs on multiple beaches from Florida to Alabama in a single breeding season. The mobility of the mothers put them at risk from shrimp boats and fossil fuel drilling operations.

Everything but people are in danger of extinction, We are going to fin ourselves all alone and without air to breathe because we cut down the forest. No food to eat because we killed off all the Bees and they do pollinate over 70% of our food.

You cannot currently send a star to Giana because you have done so within the last day.
