Why we need to protect

Sea Turtles

Sea turtles are ancient creatures that have been swimming in the oceans for millions of years. These magnificent animals play an important role in marine ecosystems by helping to maintain a healthy balance and serving as indicators of the overall health of the ocean. However, sea turtles are threatened by a variety of human activities such as pollution, habitat loss, and accidental capture in fishing gear. By taking action to protect sea turtles and their habitats, we can help to ensure their survival and the health of our oceans for generations to come.
