Although the season had a late start, leatherbacks are here now in a big way! There are lots of jellyfish and other gelatinous organisms in the waters around Cape Cod, and the leatherbacks are gobbling them up. Although we're glad to see the leatherbacks here, our waters also mean trouble for them from boat strikes and entanglement in vertical line fishing gear. Please keep a close eye out for leatherbacks, which are black, often with white spots, and for loggerheads, which are tan/brown with yellow/orange around their heads and flippers. Both species sometimes swim at or just under the surface. Your small power boat could easily kill a loggerhead or a huge leatherback. If you see a free-swimming sea turtle please report it to us at seaturtlesightings.org or 1-888-SEA-TURT. And if you see an entangled sea turtle, please call the Center for Coastal Studies' hotline (800-900-3622) and stand by in your boat, if possible. Your attention on the water and your concern can help save these threatened and endangered species.
