Endangered Sea Turtle Now Protected

"Turtle Island Restoration Network, Oceana and others  have campaigned successfully to get Governor Jerry Brown to take time from his busy schedule to sign a bill declaring the endangered Pacific Leatherback sea turtle the official marine reptile of California (the desert tortoise is our state’s official land reptile). This should bring new and needed attention to this largest of all turtles that can grow to over 6-feet and 2,000 pounds."
