Help our Sea Turtles
Did you know that the largest leatherback turtle was recorded weighing 916 kg (2,019 lbs)? That's as big as an elephant, a whale or even a small car! Sea turtles can be found in warm and temperate seas throughout the world. Adults tend to hang out in shallow coastal waters but younger sea turtles can also be found out at sea. Sea turtles hatch from eggs buried in the sand near the water and can live to be 80 years old if they survive the treacherous journey from their nest to the water. More than 90% of hatchlings are eaten by predators like raccoons, dogs, seabirds, fishes and ghost crabs.
