On 16 August 2018 The Associated Press reported:
After being hunted to near extinction in the first half of the last century, the Mediterranean's endangered Loggerhead and Green turtles are making a comeback thanks to pioneering conservation efforts, Cypriot marine biologists say. For these ancient reptiles, a stretch of beach on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus has been their home for thousands of years.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
The strong comeback ... is all the more remarkable for the Green turtle given that it only lays eggs in Cyprus and Turkey.
Turtles have been around for 200 million years on Earth but have called the Mediterranean home only for about 10,000 years, said Hadjichristophorou [marine biologist and conservation program co-head Myroula Hadjichristophorou]. Remarkably, the turtles' own ingrained 'biological GPS' brings them back to lay their eggs to the same beaches that their ancestors chose thousands of years ago.
