Transcript of Sea Turtle

SEA TURTLES!! Sea turtles are amazing creatures but if humans keep throwing plastic bags in the sea, turtles will keep thinking there jelly fish and soon turtles may have moved from the endangered list to the extinct. WHERE DO THEY LIVE? Sea Turtles live near coral, in rocky areas and/or in underwater meadows. The highlight of a visit to the Great Barrier Reef
may well be spotting a marine turtle.
Of the seven species of marine turtles, six are found
in Queensland's shallow coastal waters.
The Green, Hawksbill and Loggerhead
turtle are the most frequently
sighted but the Flatback,
Leatherback and OliveRidley turtles are also occasionally
seen. Different Species... The different Species... What is Happening... Sea Turtles!! Depending on the species, sea turtles may be carnivorous (meat eating),
herbivorous (plant eating), or omnivorous (eating both meat and plants).
The jaw structure of many species is adapted for their diet.
A Sea Turtles diet ranges from sea grass and algae to jelly fish, crabs
and other small creatures. What they Eat... By Gabrielle d'Hotman
5H The Sea Turtle has adapted over the years in order to survive. Here is a list of all its adaptations... Adaptations 1. Forelimbs are modified
into long, paddle-like
flippers for swimming. 2. Sea Turtles can recoil into their hard shell when threatened. 3. Like other marine reptiles and seabirds,
sea turtles have a salt gland to rid their
bodies of excess salt. This gland empties
into the sea turtles' eyes. The secretion
of salt and fluid makes them look as if
they are "crying" when they come
ashore. These "tears" also help keep
the eyes free of sand while
females dig their nests. Adult sea turtles have a few predators, mostly large sharks. Tiger sharks, in particular, are known for eating sea turtles. Killer whales have been known to prey on leather backturtles. Predators Fishes, dogs,
seabirds,
raccoons,
ghost crabs,
and other
predators
prey on
eggs and
hatchlings.
More than
90% of
hatchlings
are
eaten by
predators. Thanks For Watching!! How you can Help... If you want to see Sea Turtles come off
the endangered list all you have to do is
use materiel bags and recycle the plastic bags you do use. You can also go to beach clean ups and pick up all the rubbish from
the beach. Every person who does the above makes Sea Turtles coming off the endangered list ONE STEP CLOSER!
