    Endangered sea turtles are victims of sloppy logging practices in the west central African country Gabon, according to a new study. Sea turtle nesting attempts are impeded by lost or abandoned logs that accumulate along the country's coastal beaches. Logs are floated downriver from forests to coastal lumberyards in the Gabonese Republic, but some float out to sea and then wash ashore, where they form large tangles.

    Decided to take a break from coding (Coding you all a new feature) and ended up reading this article in its entirety. It's unbelievable how irresponsible the loggers are being. If they know that their logs are causing this much distress on an endangered species, the least they could do; if for nothing more than good public relations, is go in and move those logs back into the river. They could also create a means for logs to NOT get stranded on the beach by building a barricade or bump wall.

    It's ashame we live in such an uncaring world.

    I agree, it is a shame we live in a world where most people could care less about anyone but themselves.
