“This is a species in trouble… There’s been a 70 per cent decline in this population globally, and the population is continuing to head in the wrong direction”Chris Miller, Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (Nova Scotia Chapter)
From CPAWS NS:
CPAWS Nova Scotia is excited to share this information. On our kayak expedition to Owls Head last week, we observed an endangered leatherback sea turtle. It was feeding on jellyfish very close to shore, about 20-30 feet out from the shoreline, in the deeper waters near the headland.
