The Kemp's Ridley sea turtle is not only one of the rarest species of sea turtle, but it is also considered critically endangered due to the over-harvesting of its eggs. While efforts have been made to protect the species and to provide it with safe nesting grounds, its population numbers have not been able to increase. The primary Kemp’s Ridley nesting beach is in the United States on Padre Island National Seashore, south of Corpus Christi Texas, where researches and conservationists protect the turtles until they're old enough to venture out into the open ocean.
