Dear Barbara,

The Surfnetkids Games have become an important part of the Surfing the Net with Kids site, so I was dissappointed when my lawyer told me I had
to remove Tetris because it conflicted with a registered trademark. But never to be one to mope about bad news for long, I am pleased to
annouce a fresh crop of new games (with more coming very, very soon.)

N-Blox (an addictive falling blocks game)

Clickomania (with props to my friend Carol for telling me about this one!)

See ya on the Net,

Sea turtles are huge marine reptiles that live around the world in warm ocean waters, although the leatherback (one of seven sea turtle species) can be found in cold Canadian water. Unfortunately, sea turtles are threatened by a black market in sea turtle eggs and meat, long-line fishing, shrimp nets, and beach front development. Learn more at these sites.

Caribbean Conservation Corporation: Sea Turtles
http://www.cccturtle.org/sea-turtle-information.htm
*****
“Sea turtles come in many different sizes, shapes and colors. The olive ridley is usually less than 100 pounds, while the leatherback typically ranges from 650 to 1300 pounds!” The Caribbean Conservation Corporation is dedicated to the survival of sea turtles along the eastern seaboard and in the Caribbean Sea. They offer a terrific collection of sea turtle fact sheets, species details, video clips, as well as games and quizzes. Researching a school report? Put this site on your must-see list.

EuroTurtle: Education Home Page
http://www.euroturtle.org/ed_welcome.htm
*****
There are two ways to navigate around my pick-of-the-day site from the British conservation group, EuroTurtle. First is via the horizontal menu (Biology, Educational Activities, Identification Keys, etc.). The second is via the Highlights and What’s New sections on the front page. Best clicks are the interactive features in Educational Activities, such as Turtle Parts, Drag and Drop Turtles, and Identification Keys (used to identify sea turtle species.) Other highlights are Suzy’s Sea Turtle FAQ and any of the Biology pages.

NOAA Fisheries: The Kids’ Times: Sea Turtles
http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/pr/education/turtles.htm
****
“Six species of sea turtles in oceans around the United States are either threatened or in danger of extinction: leatherback, loggerhead, green, hawksbill, Kemp’s ridley, and olive ridley turtles.” For classroom (or home school), the NOAA has published six issues of Sea Times, each one dedicated to a threatened marine turtle species. The four-page printable PDFs are illustrated with photographs, and appropriate for elementary and middle-school students. For older students, follow the Species Info link (at the top of the page) to the grownup Marine Turtles section.

#5. Note from a Reader

Hello,
I noticed today that you have deleted the tetris game from your web site. It sounds weird but I have been playing that game on your site daily for nearly two years. I would appreciate it if you could give me a link or some how give access to that version of tetris.
Thanks,
Kyle

Sorry, Kyle.
Tetris is a registered trademark of The Tetris Company, and they asked that I remove the game. You can learn a little more, and post your comments at:
