Sea turtle information for kids
If you live near one of Earth's beautiful beaches where sea turtles nest, you may have been lucky enough to see nesting females lumbering up the beach, or even hatchlings scurrying down to the ocean. But whether you live on the coast or in the desert, chances are you will find sea turtles to be pretty fascinating creatures.
To help you learn a bit more about these ancient and beautiful animals we've found a few great websites for you that we think you'll love.
One of our favourite turtle sites for kids is the Turtle Tides page on the Caribbean Conservation Corporation's website. You will find lots of downloads, activities and games to keep you busy and up to date on turtle business - all while you're having lots of fun!
