Sea turtles are considered endangered species. The World Wildlife Fund names human fishing gear as the single greatest threat to sea turtles worldwide. Oil spills, fishing gear, sharks, predators- these are only some of the reasons of decrease of sea turtle population. Their nesting areas have been taken over by human settlements and recreation development, like resorts. This has forced turtles to search for areas that are less suitable for nesting. One female sea turtle can lay hundreds of eggs in one nesting season, but only a few survive under ‘natural and favorable’ conditions. Turtle eggs is a delicacy for a lot of animals, including human. It takes more than a decade for sea turtles to complete their juvenile stage and reach maturity. Only then they start breeding. Their disappearance has caused many widespread effects in the open ocean and coastal ecosystems. As the smartest animal on earth, we have to wake up from our slumber before we lose these treasures of Mother Earth.
