TURTLES IN TROUBLE

Have you ever found an innocent Sea Turtle washed up on shore covered in a plastic bags or other items such as fishing nets, choking on plastic resources or even oil dripping on their shell? Well this is happening to Sea turtles a lot because people might throw there rubbish out into the ocean which leaves it to drift of in the ocean. Sea Turtles love to eat jelly fish and sometimes when they see plastic bags they think its a jelly fish then they try to eat it and start choking then eventually they die and get washed up on shore. Sometimes they might get court under water by fishing nets which leaves them to drown under the water and not letting them to swim up and take a breath.

HOW WE CAN SAVE SEA TURTLES

There are many reasons to stop these innocent turtles from death but I reckon these are my STRONGEST REASONS.


  1. I believe we should try to decrease the amount of rubbish being thrown in the ocean and stop the amount of pollution ending up in the ocean.
  2. If we try hard enough we can reduce the amount of rubbish that has been thrown away in the ocean because if we don't stop, all sea creatures even including Sea Turtles, it will all end up very bad for all creatures and not just sea creatures but also the ocean.
  3. We must stop dumping rubbish or fishing supplies in the ocean This is gonna help these turtles from dying because a lot, so please stop doing this.
