Sea turtles are arguably one of the coolest creatures on the planet – what else has four flippers, a streamlined shell for swimming and a lineage as old as the dinosaurs?
But all seven of the world's sea turtle species – Hawskbill, green, flatback, loggerhead, Kemp's ridley, olive ridley and leatherback -- are at risk from human activity such as fishing, hunting and, of course, climate change.
In honor of World Turtle Day on May 23, spend a little time getting to know sea turtles and find out how you can help protect these magnificent creatures in one of their most important habitats, the Coral Triangle.
