    Turtle in the deep deep blue sea

    In the past 100 years, demand for turtle meat, eggs, skin & colorful shells has dwindled their populations. Destruction of feeding & nesting habitats & pollution of the world's oceans are all taking a serious toll on remaining sea turtle populations. Many breeding populations have already become extinct, & entire species are being wiped out. There could be a time in the near future when sea turtles are found only in aquariums & natural history museums — unless action is taken today.
