  • Photo by Brian Skerry @brianskerry | Green sea turtles mate off Buck Island in St. Croix. These waters were protected by President Kennedy in 1961 as a national monument, and because of this effort, animals like sea turtles have rebounded, along with so many more in these important ecosystems. The U.S. Park Service has had a decades-long program to study sea turtles here and help restore their populations.
