Why care about Sea Turtles?
First, scientists say that...
1. Sea turtles are one of the few animals to eat sea grass, particularly green sea turtles. They act as grazing animals that help maintain sea grass healthy for many fish species, shellfish and crustaceans to breed. Without sea grass, we will loose a great supply of calcium and other nutrients...
2. Sea turtles lay eggs on the beaches and dunes but not all eggs hatch and hatchlings survive, which provide nutrients to the ground... "Dune vegetation is able to grow and become stronger with the presence of nutrients from turtle eggs. As the dune vegetation grows...
the health of the entire beach/dune ecosystem becomes better. Stronger vegetation and root systems helps to hold the sand in the dunes and helps protect the beach from erosion" (conserveturtles.org).
Wow, that's a great information!
