@ the.online.business.coach 🎥 @filipe_deandrade | sea turtle hatchlings have to be one of the most charismatic wildlife ambassadors on our planet. despite their off the charts cuteness, no life passes are awarded to them. natural predators (like magnificent frigatebirds shown here) pose immediate threats to them. but that doesn’t compare to the damage done by invasive predators, human waste and changing climates. six out of seven species are now labeled as threatened or endangered. this sucks because they are incredibly important. sea turtles benefit coral reefs and sea grass beds and when females nest, they transfer nutrients and energy from the ocean to the beach. simply said, oceans need sea turtles. and since we need our oceans, we need sea turtles. want to help? reduce your use of plastics and keep our oceans and beaches clean. love y’all wildlife warriors. - also- i have received a lot of messages about this video and just want to address them here. it is my job as a natural history filmmaker to document wildlife behaviors and share them. i love my job, but it is not easy. one of the hardest things about it is not interfering with nature. even though i feel terrible for the turtle, the birds have to eat and feed their young. its not cruel, its nature. and it makes me hopeful to see all the people on here that care about turtles. that is why i offered a few suggestions on how to protect them.
