Abstract

All five species of sea turtle that occur in Florida are in danger of extinction.  Many of the reasons these turtles are declining are a result of people’s actions on beaches and in shallow waters. Environmental education is needed to increase awareness and appreciation for sea turtles, and to teach about the potential harmful impacts human behaviors can have on these animals. This document describes topics that are frequently misunderstood and discusses common human actions that are harmful to sea turtles, providing insight on which topics could be addressed during environmental education efforts.
