Sea Turtles

Sea turtles history

Sea turtles are among the oldest creatures on earth and have remained essentially unchanged for 110 million years. However, they face an uncertain future. Sea turtles are threatened in many ways, such as encroachment of coastal development on their nesting beaches, encounters with pollutants and marine debris, accidental drownings in fishing gear, and international trade in turtle meat and products.

The sea turtles job

turtles, like salmon, will return to the same nesting grounds at which they were born. When females come to the shore they dig out a nest in the ground with their back flippers, bury their clutch of eggs and return to the ocean. (http://www.defenders.org/sea-turtles/basic-facts)

It is believed that these sea creatures where once land animals that evolved to spend most of their time in the water in order to survive. They were very similar to land turtles but much larger.
