Endangered Animals: Sea Turtles

All seven of the world’s sea turtle species are endangered. They are hunted by humans for their meat, eggs and beautiful shells and incidentally captured in commercial fishing equipment. Eco-conscious travelers in the Americas can get a glimpse of sea turtles and contribute to the conservation of their habitats by making sustainable choices when traveling.
