From a very young age, I grew up snorkeling on the coasts of Venezuela. Sea Turtles have always been part of my ecosystem. I’d consider them neighbors, these species were not strange as a child, yet they were incredibly special to me.
It is sad to see how much less these creatures are around us these days. Much due to global threats such as Pollution and Global Warming.
There is also a great thread which is ourselves, many fishermen kill sea turtles on the go by leaving longlines, gill nets, and trawls behind.
