About Sea Turtles:

The Green Sea Turtle is listed as endangered by the IUCN and CITES. It is illegal to collect, harm, or kill them. However, turtles are in great danger due to human activity. In some countries, turtles and their eggs are hunted for food. Pollution indirectly harms turtles at both population and individual scales. Many turtles die after being caught in fishing nets. In addition, real estate development often causes habitat loss by eliminating nesting beaches.

Sea turtles are the most precious, beautiful, and some of the oldest creatures on earth being around over 110 million years. Sadly, their future is at risk as their life is threatened in may ways. Sea Turtles are victims of poachers, as they are killed for their eggs, meat, skin, and shells. They are also threatened due to habitat destruction, boat strikes, fisheries bycatch, petroleum by-products, getting trapped in fishing gear, and climate change. 

Fishing industry contributes to the death of thousands to tens of thousands of sea turtles each year. Plastic Pollution is another major cause of death for sea turtles. "Sea turtles can confuse plastic bags for jellyfish. Sea turtles can get stuck in plastic while swimming. Many turtles make long migrations and pass through areas with a lot of ocean plastic. Mylar balloons filled with helium can also look like jellyfish. These balloons can travel hundreds of miles in the air and land in rivers or the ocean. They can consume micro-plastic from their food. Tiny bits of plastic consumed by fish or other animals can then be eaten by those who eat them, like turtles."

Almost all Sea turtle are now classified as endangered, with three of the seven existing species being critically endangered.

It is essential that we consume as little plastic as possible. Some ways you can help: Don't use plastic water bottles, plastic utensils, balloons, plastic packaging. Use gloves made of fabric and wash the gloves instead of using plastic disposable gloves. Also as much as possible, avoid using polyester fabrics as polyester produces harmful micro-plastic fibers that kills sea turtles and other wildlife.
