Lulu the Green Sea Turtle

FUN FACT

Their body fat is bright green! This is because they eat only seagrass and algae and are completely herbivorous as adults.

Lulu, the giant green sea turtle, who was previously a visitors' favourite at the Blackpool Tower aquarium, has just returned home to the Golden Mile, after spending seven years at SEA LIFE Brighton.

Green sea turtles are listed as an endangered species by the global watchdog IUCN, the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

Green sea turtles are also threatened by destruction of their nesting and foraging areas, as well as becoming entangled in commercial and industrial fishing nets.

FUN FACT

Green sea turtles are born only 5 cm (2 in) long. But they grow up to 1.5 meters (5 ft) in length and can weigh over 300 kg (700 lbs), making them the largest of the hard-shell sea turtles.
