Turtles have survived for millions of years and now are threatened by human impacts
Because turtles are visibly threatened on land and in water
it is rare
Turtles are being killed by thousands each year! They are the most interesting and the oldest!
Because they are endangered.
Leatherback turtles are beautiful creatures.
All of the thins!
Because turtles are disappearing, humans are eating their eggs.
Turtles are cool
Turtles are endangered not only from our actions in the water - boats, nets, etc. but also action on land - doubly threatening these amazing creatures.
I like turtles.
Virgin Islands, U.S.
Turtles are majestic, lovable creatures. Their gentle nature should be an example to us all.
It is/was always fun to see and swim with them when diving or surfing
It shows the innocence of the animals and imagines the harm us humans will put unto them.
I find these creatures so interesting to look at. They seem so carefree in their own shell. It would be a tragic event if they were no longer around to observe.
I like the leatherback turtle because she's struggling to do something she's evolved for millions of years to do...but no matter how hard the species struggles, without humanity changing our ways, leatherback turtles are not going to survive.
Leatherbacks are great ambassadors for ocean health! They are big, beautiful, and charismatic!
Turtles go way back to the dinosaur days. They are a link to the distant past and I personally don't want to see them disappear.
May be an image like this can help men to think about his bad behave with all different natura things beside himself and at the end, may be, learns to respect more the rest of creation.
