Would like to take a moment out of my day, to acknowledge #worldturtleday ; since, I have gained a keen awareness of other sentient beings, these majestic creatures come to mind.
They have been around a #million years plus, and they are facing endangerment. Humans all over the world are trying their best to bring awareness to this issues and I'm doing my part.
My kids and I have seen them in an a #conservation #Aqurium , #botanicalgardens #lakesprings "For more than 100 million years sea turtles have covered vast distances across the world's oceans, filling a vital role in the balance of marine habitats." "Human activities have tipped the scales against the survival of these ancient mariners. Nearly all species of sea turtle are classified as Endangered. Slaughtered for their eggs, meat, skin and shells, sea turtles suffer from poaching and over-exploitation. They also face habitat destruction and accidental capture in fishing gear. Climate change has an impact on turtle nesting sites. It alters sand temperatures, which then affects the sex of hatchlings." (WorldWildlife.org)
