Most Sea Turtles Never Make It To Adulthood

Fishes, dogs, seabirds, raccoons, ghost crabs, and other predators prey on eggs and hatchlings. More than 90% of hatchlings are eaten by predators. I started thinking about this when I was fiddling around with the single parent statistics. If you look at a child like a sea turtle and think about all of the threats they face making it to a productive and happy adult life, I'm sure you can find plenty of parallels.

Save the sea turtles!
