Endangered Species: Chelonia mydas Pacific Green Sea Turtle

IUCN Red List, endangered species, turtle, Chelonia mydas, Okinawa, image

Aoumigame (アオウミガメ) in Japanese



This juvenile sea turtle was spotted below the cliffs at Hedo Misaki (Hedo Point) Okinawa.

English speakers say, "That ain't green."  And Japanese, don't think it's blue, either.

Well, I don't go around, making these name up. That's a Green Turtle and, it's in the sea.

Go check ARKive if, you like and see, what they have to say about Chelonia mydas.

The IUCN Red List of threatened species, can tell you why, they're endangered.

And, Wikipedia let's you know, how they breed and, where they hangout.

Whatever you do, don't get caught messing with any Sea Turtles. You could go to jail !
