Hi, I'm a Harp Seal (Phoca groenlandica)
Harp seals spend relatively little time on land and prefer to swim in the North Atlantic and Arctic Oceans. These sleek swimmers cruise the chilly waters and feed on fish and crustaceans. They can remain submerged for up to 15 minutes. Harp seals are sometimes called saddleback seals because of the dark, saddlelike marking on the back and sides of their light yellow or gray bodies. Both sexes return each year to breeding grounds in Newfoundland, the Greenland Sea, and the White Sea. When the mating ends, females gather in groups to give birth. Young harp seals are born on the ice, and mothers identify their own offspring from the multitudes by their smell. The young seals are famous for their snowy white coats.
This fluffy fur is highly valued and has drawn hunters to the Newfoundland breeding grounds for two centuries. During the past several decades these grounds have become the scene of a human conflict between sealers and outraged environmentalists and animal rights activists. Modern hunts are better regulated than in the past, but the harp seal remains perhaps the most commercially important seal, with hundreds of thousands killed each year. Other threats include natural predators such as polar bears and killer whales, pollution, oil spills, fisheries, and accidental death involving fishing gear.
Hi, I'm a Green Sea Turtle (Chelonia mydas)
Sea turtles are one of the Earth's most ancient creatures. The seven species that can be found today have been around for 120 million years, that's longer than the dinosaurs. The sea turtle's shell, or "carapace" is streamlined for swimming through the water. Unlike other turtles, sea turtles cannot retract their legs and head into their shells. Their color varies between yellow, greenish and black depending on the species. Sea turtles diet depends on the subspecies, but some common items include jellyfish, seaweed, crabs, shrimp, sponges, snails, algae and mollusks. Sea turtles spend most of their lives in the water, except to lay their eggs which they do on land.
Global warming poses a unique threat to sea turtles, since the temperature at which the egg incubates determines the sex of the turtle. Sea turtles are threatened by coastal development, an extensive market for turtles and eggs, pollution and pathogens, global warming and fisheries.
The endangered species of the world need our help.
Health Science Labs is working with Defenders Of Wildlife to safeguard wild species and their habitats. In 1947, Defenders of Furbearers, the organization that would later become Defenders of Wildlife, was founded. The fledgling organization boasted only one full-time employee and 1,500 members who made it their mission to protect coyotes and other furred animals from steel-jawed leghold traps and lethal poisons. In 2008, over sixty years later, Defenders of Wildlife employs over 150 dedicated professionals and is supported by more than 500,000 members nationwide. Our organization has evolved to take on the task of preserving our nation's native wildlife species and habitats.
Today, we are based in Washington, D.C., but our presence is felt around the world. We have numerous field offices that deal specifically with the wildlife species that inhabit the states or regions in which our staff is located. We also make a point to work with in-state partners and local conservation organizations around the county and visit important sites to get a first hand look at the wildlife and lands we protect. Our rapid development and expansion is a testament to Defenders of Wildlife's commitment to our mission and our efforts to give our members and the wildlife they long to preserve a voice in the field and in the halls of Congress.
