Green Sea Turtles
Green Sea Turtles are just 2 inches long when they are born and grow up to 5 feet long weighing over 300 lbs as adults, 3x the weight of a human being! They are the second largest sea turtle and eat sea grass and algae, which is why they love nesting in Shark Bay and are colored green! Green Sea Turtles can hold their breadth for up to 5 hours and swim at speeds of up to 35 kph. They saw dinosaurs become extinct and today, 150 million years later, with around 85,000 left, they are at risk of becoming extinct. The heat of the sand in which they lay their eggs determines the sex of turtles, with warmer temperatures producing females, and climate change is creating a shortage of male turtles threatening all species of sea turtles. A group of sea turtles is called a 'clutch' and there are fewer and fewer clutches to be found in the world's oceans as their temperatures rise.
Kemps Ridley Sea Turtles
Kemps Ridley Sea Turtles are the smallest of the 7 species of sea turtles. They grow to just two feet long and weigh less than 100 pounds as adults. Being so small makes them vulnerable to just about everything humans can throw at them - discarded fishing nets and plastic bags which they eat or get caught up in, the many threats posed by climate change damaging their nesting grounds - eroding beaches - and up setting the gender mix of their population (hotter sand temperatures mean eggs hatch as females not males), and they are hunted for their meat. But their story is one of success at least so far! Numbers of Kemp Ridley Sea Turtles dropped to around 200 females in the 1980s and since then have recovered to a few thousand! Kemp Ridley sea turtles remain endangered but show what can be done when we put our minds to it.
The Iberian Lynx
The Iberian Lynx is so called because it's made up of links or 'Lynx' and, like the gorgeous feline - the Iberian Lynx - it symbolises, is shades of gold. The Iberian Lynx lives on the Iberian Peninsula in Spain and is also known as the Spanish Lynx. It's the most endangered feline in the world today with a population of just 400 left on the planet. It was less than 100 at the beginning of the century, so things are looking up! They have a tawny gold coat and a beard which makes them look very cute indeed! Iberian Lynx's grow to about three feet or a metre and live amongst the trees!
