The sea turtle is a reptile that swims very deep into the ocean.

Sea turtles must go to the surface frequently for air.

Green turtle (Chelonia mydas; local name: turtuga blanku). Olive

brown shell, often streaked. Underside pale, carapace smooth,

rounded jaw.

Adults 95-125 cm shell length, feeds on sea grasses.

slide5

The green turtle is the largest hard-shelled sea turtle.

They are becoming depleted because of their eggs and

meat, as well as destruction of their ancient birthing

beaches. Only man, it seems has the will to destroy an

ancient species.

slide6

These creatures linger from an ancient time, before man,

when mammals were just beginning to roam the earth.

Today they are in danger of extinction, because of the

lose of their birthing beaches.

slide7

Humans

have damaged the population of sea turtles because they are

hunted for meat, shells and their eggs. The green sea turtle

uses its fins like a bird to move through the ocean.

Ocean pollution is the biggest problem facing turtles and all

life in our oceans today.
