Sea Turtles have existed for 120 million years. They have a soft bony shell, flipper-like limbs and spend an incredible 99% of their lives in the ocean.
The green sea Turtle will grow about 120 cm in length and weighing around 135-160k, the name comes from the green fat found beneath its carapace.
The Green Sea Turtle will travel long distances between feeding grounds and hatching beaches, it’s estimated that 1,000 females nest annually on the protected beaches of the British Indian Ocean Territory. This species is also listed as endangered. Sea Turtles are paramount to the many species whose survival is dependent on a healthy seagrass bed and coral reef.
