To lay eggs, a sea turtle swims thousands of miles to the beach where she was born. This long journey is fraught with danger. In many cases, the beaches are now full of hotels, people, and lights, which fool sea turtles into going the wrong way after they have laid their eggs. The journey of the hatchlings is even more harrowing, and very few make it to the ocean. In this fascinating book, children will learn about:
• the different species of sea turtles, their bodies, life cycles, migration, behavior, and diets
• why they are endangered
• how people are helping them

Endangered Sea Turtles

Endangered Rhinoceros, Endangered Sea Turtles "In keeping with the high standards set by Bobbie Kalman the Earth's Endangered Animals books are powerful non-fiction reading for upper elementary children....The photographs, diagrams, and sketches are, as usual, bright, uncluttered, and focused on the aspect being discussed....The web sites are easy to access, and the suggestions are doable without being condescending. The Endangered series would be an excellent place to begin a first research project. The books reviewed would be welcomed in any elementary or middle school library." —Catholic Library World, 12/04
