Green Sea Turtles Have Become Endangered!

Green sea turtles live all over the world in the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian oceans. And for thousands of years, they have thrived. Until now. Green sea turtles have been put on the endangered species list because they are slowly becoming extinct.

Why They Are Becoming Extinct

Green turtles are listed as an endangered species all over the world. Despite this, they are still killed for their meat and eggs. Their population is also being reduced by boat propeller accidents, fishnet-caused drownings, and the destruction of their nesting grounds by humans not being careful.
