http://amzn.to/11IXnGM Turtles' body parts would include the shell, skin, legs, feet and mouth. The shell or the outer covering of a turtle is firm. It is directly connected to the spine and as well, to the rib cage of a turtle. It is actually divided into two parts and they are the upper shell, also known as the carapace and the lower shell, also known as the plastron. The shell is a defensive weapon of a turtle. After all, that is where its entire body is deposited when it sense some danger. Of all the body parts of a turtle, skin is shockingly sensitive. Should kids be looking forward to dealing with a turtle now, they must be reminded to handle turtle's sensitive skin with extra care. Turtles living on ground have legs while turtles habituating in water have flippers. Land-dwelling turtles have feet that are round, which they obviously used for walking or moving while aquatic turtles have feet that are webbed, which they used for swimming. Finally, turtles have a mouth that's without teeth. Their mouth is beak shaped. Its edges are sharp that they utilized for chewing food. For kids to uncover more facts about turtle parts, let them explore Natalia Asfar and John Davidson's Turtles for Kids kindle edition now!

This video shows the detrimental effects of so-called ghost nets on marine animals. ***Warning: GRAPHIC CONTENT*** Video Credit and Copyright: Christine Figgener *** This footage is managed exclusively by Viralvideouk.com. If you wish to license this footage please contact [email protected] For more viral videos check here https://www.youtube.com/user/viralvideouk1 ** ----- Almost to the day exactly one year ago my research team found a plastic drinking straw embedded in a male olive ridley sea turtle's nostril (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wH878t78bw). We removed it and hopefully eased his suffering and improved his quality of life. This past 9th of August 2016, my research team once again encountered a sea turtle in distress. We found an exhausted olive ridley female swimming close to our research boat and she was dragging a huge bulk of discarded fishing net behind her. Parts of it were wrapped around her throat and had already started to cut into her flesh. We took her onboard our boat, cut-off the net, and disinfected her cuts with iodine. Due to the knowledge of the scarcity of sea turtle rehab facilities and lack of expert care for injured sea turtles in Costa Rica, we released the female back into the water since she seemed otherwise healthy and strong. As biologists, we don't actively seek out injured wildlife, but our research happens to position us at the front-lines of reality looking at the detrimental effects of human impact on wildlife. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Our research is approved by the US IACUC and is conducted under research permits issued by the Costa Rican government, MINAE/SINAC and CONAGEBio.

But they especially love warm shallow water. Male Sea Turtles spend their whole life in the sea. So they are great swimmers! Their flippers are perfectly designed to glide them through the water. Females are great swimmers also and only go on the land to lay eggs. They lay lots of eggs in sandy beach nests. When the cute little Turtles hatch they race to the water. Look at them go! What else can you notice about this Sea Turtle? That's right, Sea Turtles have hard shells for protection. Their shells very strong. Did you know? That a leatherback sea turtles grow so big...That they are heavy as a small car? Longer than a grown man! And can swim as deep as a submarine. Chomp Chomp Chomp. Sea Turtles eat everything from sea grass to jellyfish! But sometimes they confuse plastic bags with food.

This video shows the detrimental effects of so-called ghost nets on marine animals. ***Warning: GRAPHIC CONTENT*** Video Credit and Copyright: Christine Figgener -------------------- Only a few weeks after a female was found by our research team entangled in fishing-line (https://www.youtube.com/edit?video_id=lVPSTkYihCY), we found another female during the synchronized mass-nesting in Ostional this August, also badly entangled in discarded fishing-line (also called ghost net) with her front flipper. The female was found while nesting and had dragged a bulk of fishing net up the beach with her, including a 1kg lead weight. Parts of the net were wrapped around her right front flipper and had started to cut into the flesh. Luckily circulation didn't seem to have been cut off and she was able to move her flipper normally, so we cut off the line and disinfected the cut with iodine. Given our knowledge of the scarcity of sea turtle rehab facilities and lack of expert care for injured sea turtles in Costa Rica, the decision we are usually facing is either leaving the animal as is or trying to help as much as we can by removing obstructing objects. As biologists, we don't actively seek out injured wildlife, but our research happens to position us at the front-lines of reality looking at the detrimental effects of human impact on wildlife. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ At this point, I would like to thank again everyone that donated to my GoFundMe Campaign (https://www.gofundme.com/wuhvd6zj)!

Welcome to another episode of Natural World Facts! This fact file is all about Sea Turtles in the series Reptiles and Amphibians. - Brief Overview: Turtles are among the oldest groups of reptilians, having evolved millions of years ago. They can be found all over the world and inhabit almost every type of climate. There are seven different species of sea turtle, all of which vary in size and shape. The largest marine turtle is the leatherback. It can grow up to 7 feet (2 meters) long and weighs up to 2,000 lbs. (900 kilograms). The average lifespans of sea turtles can vary from 30 to 100 years, depending on the species. - Appearance: The appearance of marine turtles varies between species. The green sea turtle has a wide, smooth carapace which is brown or olive in colour, depending on its habitat. It is named after the greenish colour of its skin. The leatherback turtle has a rubbery, black shell while all other sea turtles have hard, bony shells. Ridges along its carapace help give it a more streamlined and hydrodynamic structure. Depending on the species, sea turtles colouring can range from olive-green, yellow, greenish-brown, reddish-brown, or black. All species of marine turtles have four flippers to help them swim, unlike tortoises or land turtles which have thick stubby legs for moving on land. - Diet: Sea turtles are omnivores, which means they eat both meat and vegetation, although their diet varies between species. Their diet consists of shrimp, seaweed, crabs, jellyfish, sponges, algae and mollusks. - Habitat: Sea turtles can be found in all the worlds oceans. The Kemp's Ridley turtle usually can be found in the Gulf of Mexico. The Flatback turtle inhabits the ocean around Australia, while the leatherback swims in every ocean on the planet. Green sea turtles and loggerhead turtles tend to stick to tropical and subtropical coastal waters. - Breeding: In the mating season, females and males migrate to the same beach where they were born, using the magnetic fields of the Earth as their guide. The migrations can be over 1,400 miles (2,253 kilometers) long. Sea turtles lay their eggs in clutches of 70 to 190 eggs. Females lay their clutches in holes they have dug in the beach. Once they have laid the eggs, they cover them in sand and return to the sea. Once the eggs hatch, the babies will dig their way out of their hole. Once free, the juveniles hurry to the safety of the sea to avoid being cooked by the sun or eaten by predators. - Status: The Kemp’s Ridley sea turtle is listed as critically endangered on the IUCN red list of threatened species, but the leatherback is listed as vulnerable. Some of the biggest threats to sea turtles include; oil spills, habitat loss (due to coastal development), accidental catching and poaching.

Sea turtles are one of the world's most ancient creatures, but the black market trade in turtle parts is putting their future at risk. Turtles are hunted for their meat, their shells are turned into luxury items, and their eggs are sold as aphrodisiacs. If we don’t act soon, these ancient creatures may be a thing of the past.

In many parts of the world, sea turtle eggs are a prized delicacy, but illegal poaching and a hungry black market trade have taken a toll on global turtle populations. Enter Kim Williams-Guillen, an ecologist with the conservation group Paso Pacifico. After realizing that the only way of stopping the illegal trade was to find where the eggs go once they’ve been plucked from their nests, her team devised an ingenious solution: GPS-enabled decoys that are able to track the eggs from beach to market. But how do they get these doppelgängers to look and feel like the real thing? Hollywood, baby. With the help of special effects artist Lauren Wilde, the team can employ movie-quality prosthetics and professional tricks of the trade. Working together with law enforcement, they will be able to use information gathered from the fake eggs to focus on outreach and help put an end to an illegal poaching network.

In some species of turtle the temperature determines if the egg will develop into a male or female, lower temperatures lead to a male while higher temperatures lead to a female. A group of turtles is called a bale. Historically, turtles have been the symbols of patience and wisdom. In the Hawaiian the word “honu” means sea turtles and represents long life. Turtles have been alive for more than 200 million years. They have been alive longer than mammals, birds, crocodiles, snakes and lizards. There are many species of turtles. Several species of turtles can live to be over a hundred years of age including the American Box Turtle. There was an adult Indian Ocean Giant Tortoise that when captured was estimated to be fifty years old. It then lived another 152 years in captivity. Age 80 is middle-agturtle shelled for Galapagos tortoises. The shell of a turtle is made up of 60 different bones all connected together. These bony parts of the shell are covered with plates that make the shell stronger. Most turtle species have five toes on each limb with a few exceptions including the American Box Turtle of the Carolina species that only has four toes, and in some cases, only three. Turtles have good eyesight and an excellent sense of smell. Hearing and their sense of touch are both good. Some turtles can live for more than a year without food. Hawksbill turtles feast off sea sponges which are highly poisonous to most sea animals, but not to this turtle. A tortoise’s diet consists mostly of shrubs and plants. Slow and steady won the race in 2006 when scientist Anna Wilkinson placed a tortoise and rat in the same maze. The reptile was better at navigating the maze to find food, making sure it didn't revisit the same area twice. When cognitive landmarks were removed for a second trial, the tortoise systematically visited each section of the maze to find food. The rat wasn't as methodical. Previous research hasn't shown tortoises to be so clever, though: Wilkinson suspects cold lab temperatures are to blame. Later research found that tortoises use gaze-following to learn from the behavior of other animals.

Sea turtles are presumed to be one of the most majestic creatures on earth, as in legend, myth, and folklore. Here’s 10 fascinating facts about sea turtles you probably didn’t know. SUBSCRIBE for the latest videos: https://goo.gl/7xzjzR Don't forget to CHECK OUT our latest upload: https://goo.gl/LUB8Xw 10. They’re older than dirt It’s true. While the exact number has been debated, studies determine that turtles go as far back as the Mesozoic age, better known as the age of the dinosaurs. Fossils dating 260 million years suggest this turtle-like specie of reptile crawled the earth, with the first marine turtle dating back 220 million years. This evolutionary phenomenon dubs turtles one of the oldest creatures on earth, around the same age as the dinosaurs, who became extinct about 65 million years ago. 9. Plus size turtles need love too A species known as the leatherback sea turtle can grow as large as six feet, and weigh in at about 550 to 2000 pounds. Also, like their size sea turtles can grow really, really old in age. 8. Sea turtles love going on vacation As the name suggests, these tedious travelers are the only specie of turtle that lack a hard shell, with a soft layer resembling a leathery texture; seemingly, the lighter load makes for easier movement. Scientists track leatherbacks by way of satellite and have tracked their progress over hundreds and even thousands of miles across the deep blue sea. 7. They could outswim Michael Phelps The devious divers slow their heart rate by up to nine minutes—a crafty way of conserving oxygen. Of course, this feat is highly dependent on their level of aquatic activity at the time. If sleeping, a sea turtle can survive under water for four to seven hours; during times of hibernation in colder waters, they can hold their breath for up to ten. 6. Home is where the heart is Sea turtles have an innate connection to their natal beaches. So, when it comes time to lay their eggs, females return to the same birthing place as generations before. Turtle shells and human fingernails are one in the same. An interesting point that most don’t know, is that unlike land turtles, a sea turtle lacks the ability to hide their head inside their shells. Moreover, the shell is made up of two parts—the upper part being the carapace (with a flatter shape to help them swim), and the bottom known as the plastron. This entire structural skeleton is made up of keratin, the same fibrous substance found in fingernails, and the most abundant form of protein on earth. The whole shell is fused together by 60 bones, and if one were to rip the turtle from its homey habitat, they would rip the poor animal’s body apart. 4. Some like it hot If the egg incubates at colder temperatures such as 82 Fahrenheit, the gender is subsequently male. If temperatures are over 88—the hatchling will be female. Interestingly enough, any number between the aforementioned can be a mix of either. What’s more, maternal sea turtles don’t lay on their eggs, so any form of temperature to permeate the nest is from sand alone. On average only one in one thousand hatchlings survive. 3. Turtles have feelings, too Scientists link tears to the birthing process because the behavior was only observed when the females came ashore, yet studies have shown they cry in the sea as well. Sea turtles must run certain glands in order to maintain the correct balance of salt in their bodies, therefore, research has associated crying with egg laying when really the production of tears help flush salt and sand from their eyes. Still, if it looks like these sweet sea creatures are all lone shedding tears, it’s… 2. Probably because They’re endangered Several factors impede the survival of sea turtles, the most common being entanglement by fishing nets, habitat loss due to tourism, and the consumption of their eggs and flesh as food. Poaching and exploitation results in the slaughtering of their shells and skin; in addition, sea turtles suffer from climate change which has a severe effect on their nesting sites. Lastly, waste—such as in the form of plastic bags and bottles, are an attractive food source and quickly lead to suffocation and death. 1. They’ve got their own built-in GPS system Sea turtles possess an innate ability to determine their exact location on earth as well as the direction they need to be. This skill allows the ocean dwellers to locate favorable feeding grounds as well as their natal birthing grounds. Scientists have determined that sea turtles are very sensitive to the earth’s magnetic field, and much like a compass that relays direction, sea turtles can do just that.

Understanding the cycle of life is a very important part of a child's education. Life cycles are part of us and part of every living thing. Learning and understanding them can help a child learn how better to respect and care for those around them. This can help children to understand and deal with death of a friend or family member or even pet, birth of a new sibling or cousin, and everyday changes and growth around them. This also helps a child appreciate life and their environment. 3 Part Cards & Classification Cards are used throughout the Montessori classroom to introduce language and classify a child’s environment. These can be found in my Teachers Pay Teachers Store: http://bit.ly/2mtFkED Included in this Life Cycle 3 Part Card set: • 3 Part Cards for 6 different parts of the Life Cycle • 5 arrows to use with activities • 5 numbers to use with activities • 2 versions of the Life Cycle Answer Key (Full Color & B&W) ————————————————————————————— How to Prepare: √ Make 2 copies of each page (when printing, choose the option "scale to fit" and print entire image) √ Cut out one copy of each image with text. √ Cut out 2nd copy of each image and cut text separately. √ You should have 3 Parts (Image & Text, Image only, Text only) ====================================================== How to Use: • Use Image Cards ONLY to teach child vocabulary • Match Image Cards with small figurines (Great fit with Safari Ltd or InsectLore life cycle miniatures) • Classify Objects (ie Wet, Dry, etc) • Traditional 3-Part Card Montessori Work: Teach using Image & Text card (also known as the Control Card), have child match the others. • Use Image Only & Text Only cards for those that are beginning to read. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Suggestions of activities using Life Cycle of a Butterfly 3 Part Cards: * Traditional 3 Part Lesson * Traditional 3 Part Card Matching * Traditional 3 Part Card Matching with Figurines from Safari Ltd or InsectLore * Vocabulary Lesson * Make your own Life Cycle with Arrows * Make your own Life Cycle with numerical order *numbers included ********************************************************************** Suggestions: - Don't use all the cards at one time. Mix them up to keep the game interesting and fun. Start with 3-4 and then once those are mastered add additional cards/types. The more the cards used, the harder the activity which means the longer these can be used. The uses for these 3 Part & Classification cards are endless. Use them with multiple languages and mix them with other packs for even more games and activities. They are a great addition to any preschool, kindergarten or homeschool class whether your classroom is a Montessori, Montessori Inspired or Traditional Learning Environment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Find us on social media: Facebook: http://bit.ly/LittleBuildersSchool School Resources Facebook: http://bit.ly/EducationForEsperanza Instagram: http://bit.ly/TheUnconventionalClassroomIG Website: http://bit.ly/LittleBuildersYWAM Blog: http://bit.ly/School-ResourcesBlog Exclusive First Look FB Group: http://bit.ly/Education4EsperanzaFBPromoGroup Join our Mailing List: http://bit.ly/EducationforEsperanzaEmailList Missionary Updates: fb.com/sherilbrasher.info sherilbrasher.info ******************************************************* Our schools are located within a missionary community and are providing affordable, quality education to our missionary families and local community children.

This is a short version about 15min long, so I basically fast forwarded the Real Time Version X2. Full Real Time video is now available in two parts on my YT channel :) (I just edited out the time I dip my brush in water and when I reach to get more paint, since you can't see it anyways, otherwise it would have been 2 hrs long) This is 100% watercolor except the white color, that's white gouache, an opaque watercolor. PLEASE NOTE: I use WHITE Gouache instead of Chinese White. It's my personal preference. White gouache just like any other watercolor, is water based/water needed, but instead of being transparent it's opaque. Hence I call it freely an opaque watercolor. There are different types of gouache, so please see the labels. All the annotations on colors and brushes are noted during the video, but the main water colors for the water are: Veridian Hue, Turquoise, Permanent White Gouache, Indigo, Black, Burnt Umber and Burnt Sienna. Brushes: Mostly Angular 3/4 and 1/2, then round, 0 and 3 The paper I used: Hot Pressed 9X12, Watercolor paper but Cold pressed would work as well. I used cold pressed in my Watercolor Whales video and it worked just as great :) Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCadJ4dqZOU Please LIKE and SUBSCRIBE :) also I appreciate all the lovely comments! www.facebook.com/loveoriginalart www.youtube.com/c/mariamorjane Music by Kevin MacLeod: "Music for Manatees" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/

Stubby is a female, adult green sea turtle that came to Clearwater Marine Aquarium on May 9, 2001, after sustaining monofilament fishing line injuries around her flippers. She is missing most of her front flippers and parts of her rear flippers. This makes it very difficult for the sea turtle to submerge, so she spends much of her time floating. Stubby enjoys eating many greens and receiving tactile reinforcement. Stubby lives in Mavis' Rescue Hideaway, a new sea turtle habitat at CMA. Originally streamed live on May 9, 2017. Watch Rescue-Clearwater, a real-life follow up to the Dolphin Tale films and inspiring new web series that goes behind the scenes of the rescue, rehab and release mission at Clearwater Marine Aquarium.

Under the Wildlife Protection Act, India had banned the sale of turtles and tortoise and terapins. But you can still find pet stores selling them. India's Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act banned maintaining turtles as pets. In this video, you can see how turtles are being sold in the open and the sellers have no fear for the law.

During the recent red tide bloom near Sanibel Island, many sea turtles were affected. All live turtles were taken to rehabilitation facilities for care. Three of these turtles, all juvenile Kemp's ridleys, were released on February 27, 2012 after receiving a clean bill of health. All sea turtle species are protected by the U.S. Endangered Species Act. It is illegal to possess any sea turtle (alive or dead) or sea turtle parts. The release was conducted under a marine turtle permit issued by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

When diving KASAI house reef, it is almost guaranty to see the resident sea turtles, resting peacefully in small holes or sandy parts along the coral wall and plateau. It's an easy dive, accessible to all level of scuba-divers, and great to do with family. The sea turtles can be found all day long, and they are always such a pleasant encounter. At the beginning of this video, our first encounter is with a green turtle, they are on the list of "protected-threatened", still a pretty common sight. The later, at the end of this little video is a hawksbill turtle and the are much rarer "protected-critically endangered", they have a much shorter life spam (green turtle 80-100years VS hawksbill turtle 30-50years). How to differentiate them from green turtles? The hawksbill has a more pointed mouth, a flatter shell and different pattern, also more colourful, with overlapping scutes & jagged edge. They feed mostly on sponge, sea grass, algae and invertebrates.

The "flatback sea turtle" is a sea turtle endemic to the continental shelf of Australia. The flatback turtle belongs to the sea turtle superfamily Cheloniidae and is the only species found in the genus "Natator". Its common name comes from its flattened carapace compared to other species of sea turtle. Adult flatback turtles have a low-domed carapace, with upturned edges, which is approximately 90-95 cm long. The carapace is olive to grey coloured and the plastron is cream coloured. Flatback hatchlings have grey carapaces with the scutes distinctively outlined in black. The plastron and the edges of the carapace are white. Flatback turtles are usually found in bays, shallow, grassy waters, coral reefs, estuaries, and lagoons on the northern coast of Australia and off the coast of Papua New Guinea. The species may feed off Indonesia and Papua New Guinea, but it nests only in Australia. Nesting occurs across the northern half of Australia, from Exmouth in Western Australia to Mon Repos Conservation Park in Queensland. The most significant breeding site is Crab Island in the western Torres Strait. Breeding may also occur on the islands of the southern Great Barrier Reef, and on mainland beaches and offshore islands north of Gladstone. The carapace of the adult is on average 90 cm long. It is low-domed, the edge is upturned, and has four pairs of costal scales—fewer than other marine turtles. The upper parts are an olive-grey, and more pale ventrally. A single pair of scales is located at the front of the head, which also distinguish this species. Wiz Science™ is "the" learning channel for children and all ages.

Another Progressive Rock masterpiece. Thanks to Orbs2009 for posting the original clip. This didn't need much work; I added a bit of reverb to the abrupt ending (which helped a lot), did a slight sync-up with the video (although it doesn't quite sync up when you post on YouTube for some reason), and boosted the volume. This has to be one of Jean Luc Ponty's best pieces, and this is a fine performance from later in his career (sorry, don't know the actual date).

SEA TURTLES, THE CURRENT SITUATION The protection of the different species of sea turtles is becoming essential, if we want to guarantee their survival. The decline in turtle populations worldwide is due to various causes: different characteristics of their life cycle, vulnerability in some of their stages, bycatch, ship strikes, marine pollution, accidental ingestion of plastics, consumption of their meat and eggs, habitat destruction and building on their spawning grounds. The World Conservation Union (IUCN) (http://www.iucn.org/), has included sea turtles in their lists of threatened animals. In the category of critically endangered species we find: Lora (Lepidochelys kempi), Carey (Eretmochelys imbricata) and Leatherback (Dermochelys caretta). In the category of endangered species: Boba or Loggerhead Turtle (Caretta caretta), Tabasco turtle or White turtle (Chelonia mydas) and Olive Ridley or Olivacea (Lepidochelys olivacea).They are also listed in Appendix I of CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) (www.cites.org) containing all species of animals and plants threatened or endangered. These lists should give support to governments so they would cooperate with each other to prohibit the international trade of these animals. SITUATION IN CABO VERDE Cabo Verde is the third largest nesting area for loggerhead sea turtles worldwide, with between 9,000 and 22,000 nests per year. It is the only stable nesting spot in the Eastern Atlantic. Most spawns occur in the eastern islands of the archipelago: Sal, Maio and Bonavista, the latter being the main spawning ground. We also found in the area four other species of turtles: Tabasco turtle or White turtle (youth), Carey (youth), Leatherback turtle (sporadic adults) and Olive Ridley or Olivacea (ill or deceased individuals). The main threats to the turtles found in Cabo Verde are: development of coastal tourism and unsustainable consumption of turtle meat and eggs by local people, despite it being illegal. Unfortunately, human impacts are responsible for the rapid decline of sea turtle populations in recent years. It is important that we educate ourselves on the issues that are destroying our oceans and sea turtle populations. If we work to solve these problems, we can create a better marine ecosystem that will be mutually beneficial to humans and animals. Despite laws protecting sea turtles in most countries, the illegal trade of their meat of turtles continues to be a threat. In many parts of the world, these animals are harvested for their meat and eggs which are used for human consumption and in some places are considered a delicacy. Therefore, environmental education, responsible consumption and sustainable tourism are crucial for the survival of sea turtles.

"Chelonia" redirects here. It is also the name of the superorder uniting turtles, tortoises and terrapins (Testudines) with the "proto-turtle" Australochelys. Green sea turtle Chelonia mydas swimming above a Hawaiian coral reef. Conservation status Endangered (IUCN 3.1) Scientific classification Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Reptilia Order: Testudines Family: Cheloniidae Genus: Chelonia Species: C. mydas Binomial name: Chelonia mydas (Linnaeus, 1758) The Green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas) or green turtle is a large sea turtle of the family Cheloniidae. It is the only species in the genus Chelonia. Its range extends throughout tropical and subtropical seas around the world, with two distinct populations in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Their common name derives from the usually green fat found beneath their carapace (upper shell). The green sea turtle is a sea turtle, possessing a dorsoventrally flattened body covered by a large, teardrop-shaped carapace and a pair of large, paddle-like flippers. It is usually lightly colored, although parts of the carapace can be almost black in the eastern Pacific. Unlike other members of its family, such as the hawksbill sea turtle and loggerhead sea turtle, C. mydas is mostly herbivorous. The adults commonly inhabit shallow lagoons, feeding mostly on various species of seagrasses. Like other sea turtles, they migrate long distances between feeding grounds and hatching beaches. Many islands worldwide are known as Turtle Island due to green sea turtles nesting on their beaches. Females crawl out on beaches, dig nests and lay eggs during the night. Later, hatchlings emerge and walk into the water. Those that reach maturity may live to age 80 in the wild. C. mydas is listed as endangered by the IUCN and CITES and is protected from exploitation in most countries. It is illegal to collect, harm or kill them. In addition, many countries have laws and ordinances to protect nesting areas. However, turtles are still in danger because of several human practices. In some countries, turtles and their eggs are hunted for food. Pollution indirectly harms turtles at both population and individual scales. Many turtles die caught in fishing nets. Also, real estate development often causes habitat loss by eliminating nesting

Join us in welcoming one of our smallest rescued sea turtles, Feta, back home to the Gulf. Feta, named during our cheese theme, is a juvenile green sea turtle that was found floating off of Clearwater Beach on January 31, 2018. Feta is one of our smallest rehabilitation patients weighing in at only 1.8 pounds. When she arrived at CMA we realized she was missing parts of her tail, most likely due to predation, but she never let that slow her down! #CMAinspires Visit us at Clearwater Marine Aquarium: http://bit.ly/1EKyytp https://www.facebook.com/SeeWinter https://www.instagram.com/cmaquarium/ https://twitter.com/CMAquarium https://www.pinterest.com/cmaquarium/
