Turtle Drift


About the Print

Featuring The Green Sea Turtle (Chelonia mydas)

This beauty is 1 of 7 Sea Turtles found around the world. Unlike other marine animals turtles breathe air and can often be seen on the surface of the ocean. Living most of their lives at sea, turtles only really return to land to nest and lay eggs.

Sadly, this reptile is listed as Endangered on the IUCN list with their population decreasing due to plastic pollution, seagrass degradation & climate change.

Did you know?

The sex of a turtle is determined by temperature. With threats of climate change increasing everyday there is fear that all juvenile turtles will eventually hatch as females.
