If you encounter a sea turtle, please do not interfere with it. Sea turtles face severe ongoing threats to their environment including drowning in nets, collisions with boats, harassment and hunting by man, and disturbance of their nests and eggs by man. Every individual sea turtle has an impact on the continuation of their species -- please respect them.
