Explore coral reefs to study green sea turtles in this beautiful nonfiction field guide for kids.
You might know that green sea turtles have incredible shells, but there’s so much more to learn about these underwater marvels! Turn the pages to find out how green sea turtles keep seagrass beds healthy by “mowing” them, and how some species of fish like to hitch a ride on their shells. You’ll also witness the amazing egg hatching frenzy that occurs—when baby turtles have to make a mad dash from the beach to the safety of the sea. Filled with simple science and plenty of animal facts, this book also looks at the conservation challenges these endangered animals face due to climate change, poaching, and plastic pollution.
Written by marine biologist Carlee Jackson and featuring stunning illustrations by Daniel Rieley, Green Sea Turtle (Young Zoologist) is part of an exciting series of animal books from Neon Squid aiming to inspire the next generation of biologists and conservationists.
