      I hope you enjoy this video. My thought was to not make a "MRplans video" style video.... but to make something I would be proud of for years to come. About a year ago I was presented with an opportunity to go to a sea turtle conservation center in Costa Rica. There I met Valerie, an amazing conservation researcher who has a true passion for sea turtles. When I returned home I contacted Dr. Christine Finniger who taught me more. When the Cook Museum told me about their amazing opportunity with Kale the endangered Kemp's Ridley sea turtle, I was totally floored. I hope you enjoy this video as much as I enjoyed the experience. Also, this is the first time DJI has sponsored Smarter Every Day. The Mavic Mini is going to be a great tool for upcoming videos. I've already shot a couple of things for upcoming videos with it. If you'd like to signal to them that you're glad they've decided to sponsor Smarter Every Day it would be awesome if you'd consider going here: →bit.ly/3ePEAjS ← and use promo code KLDE2Q87JZU9 to get 5% off when purchasing the DJI Mavic Mini or Mavic Mini Fly More Combo. They didn't tell me to put this in the comment section. I legitimately like the product and think you will too! As always, thanks for watching and supporting my efforts to learn all kinds of interesting things. I'm grateful for you. Regards, Destin

        This has been my favorite video so far. I love turtles and this video touched my heart. I appreciate you on a family type level. My wife and I always sit and watch your show and think, "this guy has done everything" I seen this video and I decided that we were right lol. If we can save one turtle, that's what it's all about. Thank you for your interest in turtles and I'm glad we can share this love. Thanks also for the tears. Turtles are so innocent. Much love Destin. Sincerely Troy Stevens.

      you and your family are always welcome here. Next time you come to Costa Rica you have to make a Sound Traveler episode in Volcan Rincon de la Vieja National park, the roaring vapor coming from the ground just below your feet is... well, you need to be there.

      The work they do is awesome! The way you present it is as well ! I hope they can eventually find him or her a friend to be in the tank with.

      Do you need a 'part 107' to use the drone footage in your videos since you are making money on the footage?

    11. Darryl Kinslow

      I was not paying attention at all, I was commenting on Facebook, and all I hear is "I've done it before, I've never done it with a turtle this small" I busted out laughing.

    12. Brooke Heath

      My dad just now told me about this but by telling me about Kale he has obligated himself to take me to the Cooks Museum since we only live like 30 mins away

      I learned from watching this video that "business" means making a youtube video, and when you make youtube videos like this, you just make bank and can learn spanish in another country for fun.

      1. William Jenkins

        Destin is an actual rocket scientist. His day job makes bank.

    21. Don Payton

      Don't get DJI. $1,000 drone becomes a paperweight when they get two generations away from you. they break it with their software

    23. DavixXx

      Hi Destin, i'm from Martinique (french caribbean island) and i used to swim with hawksbill turtle for years. It always been a normal animal to me like seeing pidgeon, cat or dog. But your video struck me deeply by learning that is a critically endangered specie. It make me sad but in other hand seeing people like Valerie, Dr Figgener, the Cook Museum and all the team taking care of this beautiful creature give me hope for the futur. Thanks you a lot for this incredible journey.

    24. Luke Arts

      That was a correct decision to call Kale non-releasable... I have a perineal version of the exact same thing, and after 3 surgeries it still gives me problems that wouldn't be livable without human medical intervention. He would have been in so much pain for years before finally getting into a very slow death from all kinds of trouble just like that lady described. In fact, in his scenario, the "happiest" end in the wild would be to get hit by a boat propeller. The second would be sepsis (which is a horrible death). I hope they will keep doing that flushing consistently and that he'll live on to inspire more people to be aware of the fragile but indispensable marine biosphere...

    25. Luke Arts

      I'm not sure if 100% hatching and releasing is actually doing good for the population in the long run. Because it will enable gene sets that were discarded by nature to procreate, and occupy eggs that otherwise would have been fertilized by a more suitable male with a stronger set of genes... Reducing beach predation and human disturbance: YES! That is definitely helping a lot. Because those factors are not dependent on the health of genes. But digging up hatchlings that wouldn't be able to surface on their own... I dunno... Seems like disturbing the natural selection that has strengthened the species for thousands of years.

    26. sTone ForesT

      I love how kale has personality. We tend to think of reptiles as less personable, but kale was very persistent in being comfortable.

    27. sTone ForesT

      I would love the name of mother of turtles.

    28. John Leonardi

      I never really used straws except with dinning out but after the turtle straw video I refuse to use them now, and I live inland and statistically I understand it's hard for a straw that I would use to make it to the ocean but still.

    29. Jean Delport

      Not everyone like see turtles. Michael reeves... if you know you know and you are a legend.

    43. Daniel Leandro

      Can't believe I found a video of one of my fav youtube channels filmed in my country, thanks for all you do Destin ,and for spreading the knowledge, greetings from Costa Rica! Pura Vida!

    44. sleeknub

      My hypothesis is that Kale wants to face in the axis of motion (mostly forward/backward). Maybe the acceleration sideways is uncomfortable for some reason. Maybe they naturally orient themselves in the direction of the swell in the ocean.

    45. Tinyjudoka

      "Everyone likes sea turtles" Michael Reeves: Are you sure about that

    46. Chris Ensing

      Hey Destin, the promo code on the DJI Mavic combo doesn't seem to be working.

    47. Gabriel Charvat

      I cringed SO hard watching them pull out the straw. That looked so painful removing it I wish they’d put him to sleep while doing it 😢

    48. mark clancy

      watching this made me brainstorm a few ideas one being; what if we could paint a biodegradable layer on a baby turtle shell to warn predators off for there first months /year ? would it work ...making them look poisoness to predators?

    49. Raj Gill

      That poor turtle with the straw in its nose! many thanks to marine biologists fighting the good fight

    50. Peter Jörgenson

      Hey, maybe we just stop with the killing the oceans thing and leave it alone?

    51. Ken Kendall

      Clearly plastic straws are evil, my question is how was that turtle snorting coke underwater??

    52. Blake Lawson

      Couldn’t help but think I hope kales 2 week quarantine went better than our “2 week” quarantine haha

    53. danjf1

      Good timing on finding this video on your channel with all the cold-stunned turtles of SE states being released back into the wild. It's sad that Kale cannot be released into the wild but I'm hopeful that we humans will never bring another animal to the brink of extinction

    63. Zory S

      But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you.

      This channel is soooooo good. I love the family content in this video 😊 seeing a man being a good father always makes me happy

    65. Joseph Pina

      I just woke up with this playing, and had what felt like a really long dream. I was surprised to see this video talking about turtles because my dream kind of centered on turtles. It was on the 49 min mark when I woke, I went back skipping through the video to see how alike the video and my dream were.. Very! There were characters, quotes situations and strangest of all... settings, like the room with the tanks, that exact room was in my dream at one point. Of course a lot was in my dream that wasnt in the video but it's crazy how much was and how my brain took a lot of the video and made a super vivid and crazy story into a movie for me where I was the main character!. Dreams always amaze me.

      Hi Destin, I am slowly watching my backlog of videos and was excited to see this one. I'm not sure you'll see my post as this story is over 6 months old now but I'm willing to give it a shot. If you are ever in Australia, specifically Queensland, we have the most amazing place called Mon Repos Conservation Park where research on loggerhead turtles have been carried out for over 20 years. A new Mon Repos Turtle Centre is just been built where research and education is combined to teach visitors all about these amazing reptiles. Come visit us one day, you'll love it.

      A sea turtle startled me in Hawaii. Was snorkeling and one came up from behind and shot right by my nose. Very fast in the wild.
