Animal Of Note: Sea Turtles

Sea turtles (Cheloniidae / Dermochelyidae families) are one of the Earth's most ancient creatures; of the seven species that still live, some have been around for over 100 million years. Though well protected, 6 out of these 7 species are endangered; 3, critically. Help in saving sea turtles by adopting one here: Wildlife Adoption Center.
