Sea turtles live in the ocean. They don’t loiter around so much as cruise the whole sea, taking in shallow coastal lagoons, stopping by seamounts, and crossing the open ocean on high seas highways, only ever returning to land to lay eggs.

They are truly creatures of the ocean. And they are pretty special.

Today is World Turtle Day – so what better excuse to shell out a bit of love and respect to these most iconic ocean ambassadors?
