Green Sea Turtle; an endangered animal

Green Sea Turtle

Green Sea Turtle (Chelonia mydas) is one of the endangered animals. It is also known as black (sea) turtle or Pacific green turtle. It is present around the world from tropical to subtropical seas. It has two distinct populations in the Pacifica Oceans and Atlantic.

This turtle is called green because of the green fat present in the upper shell. They can live up to the age of 80 years.

They cover large distances between feeding grounds and hatching beaches. In fact, many of the beaches of the world are referred to as Turtle islands because of the nesting of green sea turtles on their beaches. Females lay eggs during the night on beaches.

Florida Today has posted an article on to save the hatchlings from ruin. It has posted that the local people must have to turn their lights off so that the hatchlings could reach the ocean without any harm. Local ordinances has ordered to shadow the lights or keep them off during the official sea turtle nesting season, which starts from today and will be up to the October 31, as these flashlights, fireworks or camera flashes would cause the hatchlings to move towards the road rather than ocean.
