  • Sea Turtle Hatchlings begin life in an egg, which they must break through with a small egg tooth. From there, they wait until the cover of darkness to make a mad dash for the relative safety of the sea. Once in the water, they continue swimming until they reach deeper waters.
  • Scientific Name: Chelonia mydas
  • Characteristics: This figure shows the tiny Sea Turtle Hatchling just emerging from its egg, preparing to scamper to the sea. These cute figures would be fitting decorations or giveaways for an environment-themed gathering or as wedding favors for a turtle loving or environmentally conscious couple.

  • History

    Turtles first appear in the fossil record alongside the earliest dinosaurs in the Triassic period, around 245 million years ago. Dinosaurs have been extinct for 65 million years, but turtles live all over the planet, on land and sea, having survived several major mass extinctions. Today, though, Sea Turtles are considered endangered because their nesting sites are often threatened. Not only has development threatened some of their beach nesting sites, but some countries still allow sea turtle eggs and adults to be harvested for food even though the population is in decline. Conservation efforts are in full swing, including international treaties to give Sea Turtles legal protection, local efforts to guard nesting sites, and new fishing technology that avoids turtle capture.
