As our oceans are suffering the devastating effects of human exploitation and climate change, various marine life are struggling ro survive.
Here are some of the most threatened ocean species, and ways in which we can contribute in working towards their conservation.
Green Sea Turtles are the only herbivorous air breathing reptile in the sea!
Due to their exclusive diet of sea grass and algae, their green flesh and shell make them a popular source of food and leather goods.
It takes up to 20 years for a green sea turtle to reproduce, making them very sensitve to exploitation.
They are now listed as an endangered species worldwide.
