Nearly all species of sea turtle are classified as endangered. They have been constantly slaughtered for their eggs, meat, skin and shells. As turtle population continues to decline, spotting a sea turtle is usually rare.
Hence, when a gigantic leatherback turtle emerged from a Florida beach, it grabbed everyone’s attention. During the nesting season, turtles come out of the sea to lay their eggs.
Leatherbacks are the largest species of sea turtles that nest in Florida.
A Facebook, DJ Robin Michael, uploaded a video, capturing his slow walk back to the sea. The turtle rested for a second and took some strong strides, and then, disappeared in the waters.
After seeing this compelling video, people are rushing to the beach to enjoy this rare sight. Also, feeding and nesting grounds of the sea turtles must be protected, and without the help from humans, this is not possible.
