I am the eldest son of Archie Carr, Jr. Being among you tonight is a great honor, and Free casual sex in apalachicola fl 32329 find it impressive indeed, fo very encouraging, to see such apaladhicola large and diverse gathering of sea turtle specialists. But, hastily, I want to confess to you that I myself am not a apalacuicola person. At least not in any exclusive or remarkable way. Most of you are far more involved with sea turtles, professionally or academically, than I am; and apalachhicola it is with humility, and great respect, that I stand before you tonight.
Of course, by inheritance, I have always casuual turtle people. Esx comes as an casuxl emotion. My father, ib the early heroes of my childhood, were turtle people. But some were coastal dwellers. Freee hunters- or aalachicola, as we would say today. Unsophisticated people of the shore; simple, yet able to convey such intimate apalaachicola about turtles and the natural world that today, at the age of 54, I am never certain that what I apalachicols know about a given subject in turtle biology is science or ancient lore. Aex garnered a lot of folklore hunched before kerosene lamps on rainy nights in thatched shacks near the beaches of Tortuguero, Costa Rica.
I am a turtle man by association. After two decades of gatherings, it is indeed possible to talk about generations and transitions and origins and destinations. I think that is why I was asked to take some your time this evening. To do some reflecting… on my father, inevitably, I suppose, but more to the point, on the progress of sea turtle science and conservation. Although I dare not claim to be a sea turtle specialist, I can say this: I was there at the beginning. Inwhen I was 11 years old, I accompanied my father on his second visit ever to the now fabled Tortuguero Beach in Costa Rica.
My family was living in the country then, while my father taught biology at the University of Costa Rica. My father was trying to improve the logistics for the brand new research program on the beach. He had been to Tortuguero once before, and had convinced himself that the beach was, in fact, the motherlode of green turtle nesting. The story of his Caribbean-wide search for this beach, was written in his book, The Windward Road, published for the first time in January, It was later in that same year that I went with him, back to Tortuguero.
He was doing advance work for the second turtle tagging season, checking into housing, food and the availability of field assistants. To launch the first turtle tagging season, in, Archie had asked a remarkable man by the name of Leonard Giovanolli to go to Tortuguero. He was the pioneer on the beach. I knew Leonard well. The research technique envisioned for the nesting turtles at Tortuguero was to catch the females on the beach, take certain measurements from them, affix numbered tags to the specimens, and release them. In this way, migratory patterns of the nesting colony would gradually come to light.
You have seen the maps of migratory routes of marine turtles in the Caribbean, and elsewhere. In fact, there being generations of turtle people here tonightmany of you have employed these same methods yourselves on beaches all over the world. In those days, the tags that Leonard Giovanolli used, the first generation of turtle tags, were oval discs. They were made of a salt-tolerant metal alloy, of course, and they were secured to the terminal scutes of the carapace with stainless steel wire. It was necessary to turn the turtle over, drill holes through the edge of the carapace, pass the wire through the holes and firmly bind the tag to the shell.
The tag was inscribed with the now customary numbers and return addresses. Fortunately, within a year, my father came upon the monel metal cow ear tag, and made a breakthrough in turtle mark and recapture techniques at Tortuguero. The cow ear tag remains in use today, although numerous other marking devices are available to modern sea turtle biologists. Perhaps there will be further discussion of the relative merits of these tags during the course of this symposium. But, with all the steps involved in the original technique used by Leonard Giovanolli, the manipulating of the turtle in the dark, often hampered by rain; the drilling of the shell; the threading of springy wire through sand-clogged holes; the measuring of the carapace in the light of a dim flashlight; and of course the careful taking of notes-all of that is made almost improbable when you realize that Giovanolli had only one leg!
He walked for miles with crutches that plunged into soft, yielding volcanic sand of 1 20th Annual Sea Turtle Symposium, Tortuguero. And then he confronted the big green turtles and flipped them over. And then he proceeded to drill the shell and secure the metal oval tags. Leonard was a pioneer. The first of the turtle taggers at Tortuguero. So, I say to those of the modern generation, when the beach seems long, and the rain unrelenting; when the rewards of turtle study seem remote and of little consequence as compared to the misery of the moment, remember the strength, grace and determination of Leonard Giovanolli, the first of the turtle taggers, and be encouraged.
Almost every detail of the natural history of sea turtles interested my father. He once explained to me that he became captivated by sea turtle biology during the demanding preparation of his manual, The Handbook of Turtles, a taxonomy of the turtles of the New World, published in It occurred to him that, of all the chelonians, the sea turtles were possibly the most mysterious and intellectually challenging, if only by virtue of the fact that they were out of sight on the high seas for so much of their life histories. So, from that point onward, Archie dedicated the majority of his scientific and literary energies to the marine turtles.
I am going to tell you a story related to the lost year in a moment. Dinner-plate size is a remarkably accurate measure for the smallest green turtles you might encounter on a grass flat. Turtles of this dimension are assumed to be the newest recruits to the grazing schools. They are carnivorous during this period, becoming herbivorous by the time they are dinner plate sized, and join the adult turtles on the pastures of sea grass, like Thalassia testudinum. Perhaps some of you will be able to join Dr. Lew Ehrhart for a field trip on the Indian River Lagoon after this symposium.
Lew can show you dinner-plate sized turtles in abundance. But, knowing my father, I always worried about the possibility of a double entendre. You see, in the early days, he loved to eat green turtles. He learned to make clear turtle soup, laced with sherry wine in the classic British way, that would have made Winston Churchill salivate. He would commission cooks in Caribbean towns to prepare gelatinous turtle fins for him in 2 Orlando, Florida, USA various exotic, and tasty, stews. And so, I was always suspicious that the sight of a dinner-plate sized green turtle evoked in him a culinary appraisal of the young, gleaming, succulent looking reptile.
The lost year begins with a heroic night. The hatchling turtles hurtle down the beach toward the sea, almost always in the dark of night, and enter the boundless ocean. They paddle into the darkness, and in doing so, pose another question in animal behavior: Is their progress through the sea random, or are they navigating, following a discernable course? Do they encounter the distant, floating rafts of sargassum by accident, or do they follow courses that lead them positively out to sea, out to where flotsam and jetsam of suitable make-up are likely to be found?
Open sea navigation by sea turtles intrigued my father perhaps more than any other aspect of the biology of these ancient animals. He designed several experiments to investigate the seamanship of adult turtles, and I will mention some of them in awhile. To examine the capabilities of the hatchling turtles at the beginning of the lost year, Archie gave encouragement to a young woman named Jane Frick. Off the island of Bermuda, where she would take tiny hatchling green turtles from Costa Rica, Jane would swim with fins and a snorkel for hours, for miles, behind a turtle, tracking it.
A skiff would follow her, taking periodic bearings from the retreating island. Of course, the plots of the bearings of the swimming turtles turned out to be straight lines, confirming the capability to navigate. But if you follow a straight line for three to four hours away from Bermuda, even at the not-too-slow pace of a hatchling turtle, you find yourself on the way to Europe or South Carolina. Jane said she knew the ways of sharks and the deep blue sea, and was unperturbed.
