Let's save the turtles!!!!
Sea turtles have played vital roles in maintaining the health of the world’s oceans for
more than 100 million years. These roles range from maintaining productive coral
reef ecosystems to transporting essential nutrients from the oceans to beaches and
Major changes have occurred in the oceans because sea turtles have been virtually
eliminated from many areas of the globe. Commercial fishing, loss of nesting habitat
and climate change are among the human-caused threats pushing sea turtles
towards extinction. As sea turtle populations decline, so does their ability to fulfill
vital functions in ocean ecosystems.
Our oceans are unhealthy and under significant threat from overfishing, pollution
and climate change. It is time for us to protect sea turtles and rebuild their
populations to healthy levels as a vital step in ensuring healthy and resilient ocean for the future
