This week we will be joined by the Sea Turtle Council.

These ancient beings travel thousands of miles across oceans in their long lifetimes. Turtles can live 70 years. All, except the leatherback are hard shelled, but unlike their terrestrial cousins, they do not retract their heads or legs into their shells. Australia, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea are home to the flatback turtle.

Most sea turtles are omnivorous. They graze on seagrass which is an essential nursery for many fish and phytoplankton, keeping the grasses at ideal lengths and thicknesses to support a myriad of other creatures. However the leatherback feeds exclusively on jellyfish, the hawksbill's diet is 70-95% sponges.

There are so many wonderous facts about these beautiful creatures.

Turtles have been hunted by humans from the beginning for their meat, shells, skin and eggs. Happily, today there are concentrated efforts all over the world to protect them.

What do they wish to tach us this week? Join us and find out!
