This photo (taken in South Carolina by Dubose Griffin) sadly shows a loggerhead turtle that got tangled up in a chair and then washed ashore. Loggerhead sea turtles were listed as a threatened species throughout their global range on July 28, 1978.
This is just some of the disturbing stuff I discovered while reviewing sea turtle stranding data.
