Green Sea Turtles
The Green Sea Turtle is amongst the biggest of all the many seas turtles that exist growing up to 180 kilograms (400 pounds) in weight and measuring almost 2 meters (four feet) in length.
As herbivores or plant eaters, Green Turtles play a unique roll in the oceans' ecosystems - they are the lawn mowers of the seas eating the algae and seagrass on the ocean floor which helps to keep these rich beds of nutrients healthy for the varieties of marine life which depend upon them. Seagrass and algae are not only vital sources of food, but the beds themselves are essential nurseries for a whole host of marine animals. As the populations of Green Sea Turtles diminish, we are upsetting the ocean ecosystem and in turn disrupting the ocean food chain on which billions of people depend for survival.
Green turtles are found mainly in tropical and subtropical waters. Like other sea turtles, they migrate long distances between feeding grounds and the beaches from where they hatched. Classified as endangered, green turtles are threatened by over-harvesting of their eggs, hunting of adults, being caught in fishing gear and loss of nesting beach sites.
