Green sea turtles are reptiles. The average lifespan for a green sea turtle is over 80 years. They inhabit the tropical and subtropical coastal waters around the world. When it is time for them to come ashore and lay eggs, they can lay between 100-200. After they lay the eggs on shore, they return to the water. Green Sea Turtles are both r and k strategists. They are k strategists because they live for a really long time and they are r strategists because they have a ton of babies then don't stick around to take care of them.
Save The Sea Turtles.
The green sea turtle is an endangered species. Many die each year due to pollution, poaching, and getting caught in boat motors. These beautiful creatures often mistake plastic bags floating in the ocean for jellyfish and then choke on them. Poachers trap and kill green sea turtles to use them for their skin, shells, and meat.
