Green Turtle’s Battle For Survival – Planet Earth – BBC Earth


From the moment they are born, these plucky Green Turtles from the Ascension Islands will face a huge battle to survive. Those that do survive, like their mothers did before them, will return to exactly same beach where they hatched.

  1. "See the turtle of enormous girth!On his shell he holds the earth. His thought is slow but always kind; he holds us all within his mind. On his back all vows are made; he sees the truth but mayn't aid. He loves the land and loves the sea, And even loves a child like me."

  2. We still have no idea? They are the creation of THE GOD and he has made everything so beautifully that we humans don't need any ideas. *Sorry got emotional *

  3. I know it isn't natural, but we should be allowed to stop seagulls and land predators from attacking them. I mean is it really necessary for a seagull, one of the most common birds, really need a meal of potentially long living sea turtles? I know most won't make it, but we could at least improve the chances.

  4. Although I don't want to interfere with nature, I wish I could be there to carry them passed the waves and into the water before the birds get their way with them.
