Green Sea Turtle

green sea turtle s

Sea turtles are not only beautiful creatures, they help to maintain seagrass beds and are an important part of the ocean ecosystem.  Human development of coastal areas pollutes and destroys these seagrass beds and jeopardizes turtle nesting sites on beaches.  Global and ocean warming also endanger turtle habitats.

Turtles are hunted for both eggs and meat, and  get caught in commercial fishing nets where they drown.  Another threat is the trade in turtle parts for use in traditional African and Asian medicine.

    Yes, we both love turtles…unfortunately, both of mine were not alive. The shells are beautiful, though.
