Hawksbill Sea Turtles have narrow and pointed mouths which look like the beak of a hawk. They are the smallest of the sea turtles, growing 2 to 3 feet long and weighing a massive (for its size) 100 pounds owing to the weight of its shell. There are now just around 8,000 nesting Hawksbills left in the world spread across 5 populations. They are hunted for their shells and meat, and killed by the 640,000 tons of ‘ghost fishing nets’ abandoned by fishermen in the sea every year. When you think that thousands of turtles are killed every year, you can see why the Hawksbill is now a 'critically endangered' species i.e. on the verge of extinction, and we must save them!
We've created a bracelet capturing the colours of the Hawksbill's shell - the hues of browns and greens it collects on this armour plating as it migrates around the world. The Hawksbill looks almost iridescent after swimming perhaps millions of miles in the deep. Whilst great travelers, their habitats are the world's coral reefs in the Pacific and Indian Oceans, and the Great Barrier Reef, the largest reef in the world, is a favorite Celebrate this wonderful creature who is over 100 million years old - they have been on the planet a lot longer than us!
