I don't want to live on this planet anymore. Seriously you ******* idiots, leave them the **** alone, there's a reason they haven't evolved to rely on humans to protect their ******* offspring

Yea man I agree. They should let the birds and other creatures feast on them so that only a couple of the them make it into the water. Or maybe some of them flip over and die of starvation because they can't get back on their feet. Then more of them get eaten by fish when the get into the water. That's the way it should work.

We cause more damage than protect other species.
If we left them alone they would go into extinction before evolving into a status that can resist human activity.

Also some people like to eat turtle eggs.

Interesting point, but consider this scenario: The weak offspring that would of died on the beach are now being introduced into the water. The weak off spring are eaten by a predator that normally can't feed on them. That predators food chain becomes stronger effecting other species / also possibly causing that predator to focus soley on this one.

Relatively decent understanding. Just because you increase a population doesn't guarantee it will benefit that species more so than harming it. A large variety of factors come into play including disease, competition for natural resources, increased predation, mating aggression, and territory. It's not always a case where increasing a population is healthy for it.

Not when taking into account disease though. It could take simply just one turtle infected with lets say a parasite that would of died on the beach to be eaten by a predator that normally would not feed on said turtle. We have no idea what that parasite could possibly do to the now infested predator, to its enviroment, and the organisms that feed on it.

The point being is the less human influence the better, unless we are controlling our own factor in play.

BUT WE SHOULDN'T BE AFFECTING THE COURSE OF NATURE ANYMORE THAN WE ALREADY HAVE! If we keep doing this, then the birds that live in the area might no get the food that they usually get that they have been relying on for years, this is probably just some tourist attraction, which we have no right allowing.

If its a turist attraction there will be turist who throw half eaten food around, that food will be eaten by the birds. Everyone lives.

Don't be stupid, the birds obviously have other food sources
Why let turtles die when they don't have to!

actully it is against the law to help protect them getting to the ocean they give birth to so many beacuse so many die if you protect them you get over population now the the other anon didnt have to be a dick about but technically he/she is right

I am sorry but you guys need to learn what natural selection is, baby turtles not making it to the ocean has nothing to do with it, Natural selection is the process of an unwanted or unbenificial traits are phased out, this is just protecting an endangered species that is important to the ecosystem. without sea turtles there would be massive sea weed plumes that would kill many types of fish.

If the damn animals die out of natural selection, IT'S ALL ******* RIGHT, NO BIG DEAL IT'S NATURE! the ecosystem won't collapse on it's self if they go away but will if we interfere as usual. I can't stand hippies who love nature and end up hurting it trying to help it.

The reason we're trying to help them is their numbers are really low because of what we do. Down here in Florida, the lights from the city confuse the baby turtles and make them crawl inland instead of out to sea.

Right, if they want to help nature, plant some trees to replace the ones we've chopped down to wipe our asses with.

I agree, we shouldn't interfere like this in nature, animals have been feeding on the turtle hatch lings for thousands of years. I only agree with humans interfering with other animals when it's from something we caused, like deforestation.

I do agree, but don't forget that some of them just end up dead on the beach, some don't get eaten and just go to waste.Also don't forget that humans are killing billions of animals both directly and indirectly. Lots of animals are going endangered because we destroy eco systems. Saving a some turtles will mean that more turtles are born in the future and if more turtles are born they will grow up and have more babies, and those babies will have even more babies and soon the animals that used to eat them will have more food... So really.. by saving some turtles today other species will have more food later in life.. Also turtles.

Your trying to take fact into nature. Introducing more of a population into a environment can go both ways for a species.

seeing as how this is an endangered species, i dont think its bad that they protect them from getting eaten.

why is everyone freaking out that they're messing with natural selection? natural selection is still at work all they're doing is making sure they make it in to the water were most of the turtles are still going to be eaten by some other ****

An extremely successful species attempting to keep a very unsuccessful species from extinction...

Too little, too late. Let nature take it's course.
