This turtle is the second largest of the seven species of sea turtle. Like most of them, the green turtle has been hunted by human for ﬂesh, eggs and shell. The green turtle spends most of its live in the sea. The females come a shore to lay their eggs for only a very short time. From 1000 eggs, just one or two survive their ﬁrst year. There are either eaten by ﬁsh, birds or other sea creatures.
