ENDANGERED, so no one can hunt them or kill them, or they are a poacher!

One of the greatest threats to hatchlings is light pollution near beach nesting sites (like lights in skyscrapers)

Some sharks try to eat them, but luckily, thew turtles have shells so they are safe. Turtle babies Mama digs a hole and lays over 75 - 200 eggs and then covers the hole with sand. Videos Bibliography babygreenonback_1.jpg (pic) Green Sea Turtles are... Youtube Endangered Animals

Green sea turtles move across three habitat types, depending on their age. They lay eggs on beaches. Older turtles spend most of their time in shallow, coastal waters with lush seagrass beds. Adults are usually in inshore bays, lagoons and areas with lush seagrass meadows. Entire generations often migrate between one pair of feeding and nesting areas.
