Watch incredible footage of a drone capturing approximately 64,000 green turtles floating along the Great Barrier Reef. The footage was used by researchers to count the numbers of the turtles to be used for research.
A 25years old female green sea turtle named "Bank" swallowed 915 coins. Veterinarian surgeons from Chulalongkorn University's veterinary faculty performed four hours of operation to remove all of the coins from Bank.
Female sea turtles will swim for thousands of miles to return to their place of birth to lay eggs. For years, how they found their home has remained a mystery to researchers. However, according to a new study, these sea turtles find their way home by relying on the unique magnetic signatures along the coast.
As a migratory species, Leatherback Sea Turtles (Dermochely coriacea) are a rare oddity of nature that spend their lives mostly in travel, between their breeding grounds in open ocean and their tropical places of birth. Travelling back and forth between the tropics and their hunting grounds to the north, the unique species follows the cool waters, as they flow throughout the oceans they inhabit. But that doesn't even begin to unravel their mysterious origins or how they know to traverse the seas.
