Turtles

Turtles are ancient reptiles that have been around for over 200 million years! They shared our planet with the earliest Dinosaurs.

There are over 300 species of Turtle in our oceans and rivers today and some are critically endangered! They are hunted for their beautiful shells and eggs, and often caught in fishing nets or plastic litter.

Plastic bags are deadly to Sea Turtles which often mistaking them for their favorite food, Jellyfish, and choke on them.

SEA LIFE rescues, rehabilitates and releases many Sea Turtles each year which have been injured or lost their way. Turtle Watch allows you to see what happens to these turtles once they are tagged and released!

The temperature of the sand in which a Sea Turtle's eggs are buried, determines what gender they will be. If it's warmer they'll be girls, cooler and they'll be boys!
