Sea Turtle New Year

It is almost time for us to ring in 2022! Many people have a New Year’s Resolution.

Resolution – a decision to do something or stop doing something

If you are looking for a New Year’s Resolution, I have some ideas for you. Sea Turtles are endangered species. That means we are at risk for extinction. Extinction means that once the last animal of that species dies, they are gone forever.

Endangered – at risk of extinction
Extinction – the dying out of a species

There are many reasons for Sea Turtles to become endangered.

  • Caught in nets from commercial fishing
  • Sold for their shells
  • Beach activity
  • Light pollution
  • Predators
  • Plastic pollution

Can you can think of some things to do to help us from becoming endangered?

Light pollution can lead sea turtles away from the ocean

Send me your ideas and I’ll give you some ways to help. You can add them to your New Year’s Resolutions!

Swim ya later, Love Kit!
