Following our study of freshwater turtles, we turn to sea turtles. People on Earth have a lot of effort to put forth to protect the seven sea turtles living in our oceans. As you can see by their listed status below, we must act now.
Critically Endangered: Hawksbill and Kemp's Ridley
Endangered: Green and Loggerhead
Vulnerable: Leatherback and Olive Ridley
Data Deficient: Flatback
Artists Pato and Pluma guide the children on drawing and painting proportionally correct sea turtles and a close-up of the head of a turtle.
Pluma helps Yael with his drawing.
Pato watches the children draw and paint the head of a turtle.
Below are a few of the fantastic drawings of a head of a turtle including tips on how to protect turtles. There are many more ways to protect turtles so please join the effort.
