Four Facts About Leatherback Sea Turtles

Four Facts About Leatherback Sea Turtles


Do you want to hear something “turtley”
awesome? Here are four facts about leatherbacks that
you should know. Fact number one. Leatherbacks are the largest of all living turtles. They can reach sizes
of up to seven feet in length. Fact two. Unlike most turtles, leatherbacks have a
soft flexible shell that allows them to dive to a depth of
more than one kilometer. That’s deeper than most whales can go. Fact three. Ancestors of the
leatherback sea turtle appeared on earth one hundred million years ago! But today, the species is critically endangered in many parts of the world. This is a result of
extreme pollution, climate change, and the illegal poaching of their nests. Fact four. Leatherbacks live out in the open ocean and their primary food source is
jellyfish. They can actually eat their body weight in jellyfish everyday. Oops sorry, that’s a plastic bag. You see how easy it is to mistake. Leatherbacks really
need your help to keep the ocean clean. Join 4ocean in supporting the
leatherback sea turtle.

    We were just at the beach picking up a bunch of trash. Then we went to a aquarium and in the gift shop your bracelets were there. We all got them and I got the leatherback, my mom got dolphin and my brother got Shark. We also have a rule where we can never take them off.

  23. G. Dave3 says:

    I worry so much about Turtles for many reasons, but a frightening one is that temp decides the gender of the develpoing Turtles in the Eggs. This year it was found that all the Baby Turtles( of a particular type, but I expect other Turtles would also be affected). We’re all Females ( I think it was a study of a small Pacific Island), this obviously mean intervention will be needed for the foreseeable future to make sure enough eggs are removed and made to be Male by regulating the temp in incubators.
