USPS video explores reasons behind new Protect Sea Turtles stamps

The Postal Service has released a video on Protect Sea Turtles, new stamps that highlight six endangered species that forage in U.S. waters or nest on American beaches.

They are the loggerhead, leatherback, hawksbill, Kemp’s ridley, olive ridley and green sea turtle.

Steve Dearing, the Postal Service’s data and analytics vice president, is featured in the video, along with Donna Shaver, chief of sea turtle science and recovery for the National Park Service, and Jesse Gilbert, president and CEO of the Texas State Aquarium.

Dearing lists the ways people can help protect sea turtles and their habitats, including avoiding disposable plastics and keeping beaches clear of debris and minimizing lighting during nesting season.
