The Coffee Shop is an open thread-style discussion forum for human interest news of the day.
From The Atlantic:
In the Florida Keys, the Turtle Hospital is fighting to save the dwindling population of American sea turtles. The hospital, which works to rehabilitate sick and injured sea turtles, treats human-caused conditions like flipper amputations, shell damage from boat collisions, and intestinal issues from ingesting plastic bags and fishing line. The most common surgery performed at the Turtle Hospital is the removal of viral tumors called Fibropapilloma, that affect over half of green sea turtles. In this short film, The Atlantic goes inside the Turtle Hospital to see firsthand the fight against sea turtle extinction.
This is an open thread. There are several hosts, each host being responsible for picking a “theme of the day” and starting the discussion. However, there is no hard and fast rule about staying on topic, especially if you have a personal story burning a hole in your pocket trying to escape.
Pictures and videos are welcome in the comments. If photos are used, please be sure you own the copyright. We would rather see your personal photos anyway, rather than random stuff copied from the internet. Our only request is that if you use pictures or videos, take pity on those who don’t have broadband, and don’t post more than two or three in a single comment.
This is an Open Thread. Grab your cup, pull up a chair, sit a spell and share what’s on your mind today.
