Civilization Advances, Sea Turtle Benefits

A loggerhead sea turtle washed up on a Cape Cod beach, suffering from hypothermia in the cold water. A hundred years ago no one would have cared, and the turtle would have died.

Now, because of the advance of civilization, the turtle is safe and being nursed back to health, hopefully to be returned to the sea for a long life of freedom.

It's a good story to hear at Christmastime, isn't it?
