|Kempís Ridley -- The World's Most Endangered Sea Turtle|
The student will learn about the endangered status of the Kemp's ridley sea turtle. Since all seven species of sea turtles are endangered, threatened or vulnerable, this lesson will acquaint the student with hazards to all sea turtle species, as well as with specific efforts to save the Kemp's ridley. The student will be given enough information to take an active role in this species' preservation through contacting appropriate government officials by letter writing, drawing a picture or by e-mailing.
