Endangered Leatherback Turtles by Emileah Weatherford

weatherford-emileah-endangered-leatherback-turtles-drawingLeatherback turtles are the biggest turtles on Earth but they are critically endangered. They are going extinct because of illegal hunting, loss of nesting habitat, and humans taking their eggs. Also, they mistake plastic for food which cannot be digested and causes them to die.

We can help these turtles by picking up after ourselves, not littering, and not throwing trash where it doesn’t belong.
