Kemps ridley trapped in beach furniture
Large debris such like this lawn chair is one of many threats to
marine turtles. This kemp's ridley became entrapped and drowned in
this chair. Not only can beach furniture trap turtles, it can also
cause a "false crawl" where nesting females encounter a disturbance
or obstacle when they come up on the beach to nest and return to
the sea without laying any eggs.
