WhatS UP? Single Use Plastic drifting in the ocean. If turtles were having a party themed ‘Plastic fantastic’, they wouldn’t have a problem choosing their outfit. Browsing through the ocean of options they could create a great fashion show.
Sea Turtles remember T-Rex and other dinosaurs, as they have been on our planet for over 110 mln years. Sadly at the moment, nearly all of them are endangered, with 3 out of 7 species being critically endangered.
Plastic is just one of many on the lists of turtle’s problems, but it’s the easiest one to approach. So let’s make an effort and avoid SUP as much as possible.
Fun facts about sea turtles:
- They breathe air, however they are able to stay underwater for up to 5 hours at a time when they are asleep.
- They’re the oceans’ lawnmowers. Without them seagrass would become too tall and disturb other sea animals.
- They cannot retract into their shell like other turtles.
- Temperature affects the sex of baby turtles. Global warming increases the amount of females.
