There are 7 species of sea turtles distributed globally in tropical and sub-tropical oceans. These large air-breathing reptiles are highly migratory, and often return to the same beach they were born to lay eggs. Sea turtles are highly vulnerable to human activity, from ocean pollution to beach urban development.
