How the climate change is effecting Green Sea Turtles

What is Climate Change?

It is a change in global or regional climate patterns, increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide produced by the use of fossil fuels. Shifts in the ecosystem are causing the green house gasses in the earths atmosphere. Heat is trapped in the atmosphere causing it to act like a blanket, this is from carbon dioxide being produced from coal, oil, factories, driving cars and using thing that need gases.

Background

Sea turtles are very endangered and are at crucial risk. They are found in coral reefs and non polar oceans. The reason that sea turtles are much bigger than land tortoises and freshwater turtles is directly related with the vastness of the ocean, and the fact that they travel such far distances. They are endangered because of there habitat is being polluted by fishing nets and oils being dumped out. They harm they're herbivore habitat and are at risk be they are so larger in mass and hard to save.
