Sea turtle rescue efforts

Sea turtles are usually not found on Oregon or Washington beaches ["Flying Turtles and Other Means of Rescue" by Tony LaCasse 2/19]. The Oregon Coast Aquarium typically sees extremely sick turtles in winter, possibly due to cold water temperatures, changing currents, and high frequency of harsh storms that wash hypothermic turtles ashore. In January, two rescued olive ridley sea turtles in our care died despite strong staff efforts to safe them. As always with animals with sustained injuries, there are a lot of challenges through recovery.

At the end of the fourth grade, we had to come up with a subject that we would like to study more and create a project called "genius hour."

I wanted to help raise money and awareness and help reduce the use of plastic bags, so I choose to make and sell reusable bags and donate the money to the sea turtle rescue. I also make and sell clay sea turtles, themed bracelets, and turtle silver rings. So far, I've raised $1556 with all profits going to the sea turtle rescue and rehabilitation program at the Aquarium.

Perhaps the author should have shortened that list by using the inclusive, fourteenth-century word "chattel."

It may be argued that Neolithic cultures were not feminist/ egalitarian, but is enough known about the inhabitants of La Marmotta to make that argument? It's not even known where they came from. Moreover, even if we knew they didn't consider women to be human, we are not bound to share their view.

It is hard for me to grasp how an author, today, could first identify people, then speak of women and children as addons, grouped with possessions and livestock. …
