And much more..

Sea turtles are ancient reptiles that inhabit the seas and oceans and have hardly changed over the last 150 million years.

Where do they often live?
Today, seven different species of sea turtles swim in the seas:
– The green or giant tortoise (Chelonia mydas),
– Eretmochelys imbricata,
– Caretta caretta,
– Lepidochelys kempii,
– Pacific olive tortoise (Lepidochelys olivacea),
– Natator depressus,
– And Dermochelys coriacea.

These species divided into two families: Dermochelyidae and Cheloniidae. Dermochelys coriacea is the only surviving species of its evolutionary lineage (Dermochelyidae) that differed from other turtles during the Cretaceous or Jurassic period. Other species of sea turtles belong to the family Cheloniidae, which originate from a common ancestor in the
Middle Tertiary.

The Cheloniidae family inhabits tropical and subtropical seas, while Caretta caretta and Lepidochelys kempii spend a lot of time in warm seas of the temperate zone, migrate between the highlands latitudes at which they feed and low, at which they conduct winter.

Populations inhabiting the eastern shores of North America spend the summer in coastal waters near New York, migrating in the fall south toward Florida. Chelonia mydas and Caretta are the only species of sea turtles that breed in the Mediterranean.

Dermochelys coriacea is the only reptile that can withstand large differences in ambient temperature. It nests in tropical areas and feeds in cold northern waters.

It lives in Japanese waters, Newfoundland, Iceland, western Norway, and the United Kingdom. In the south, been observed in the waters of Chile, Peru, and
New Zealand.

How do they interact with their surroundings?
Marine turtles have secondarily adapted to life in the water by developing fins for swimming. Their armor is given a hydrodynamic shape. The front fins are used for swimming, while the rear fins are maintained the direction of movement.

They are good swimmers and can swim at an average speed of 5 km / h. Turtles are significant for the ecosystem because, by their action in it, they maintain their balance. We also call them roof species, which means that by protecting the turtle environment, we also conserve other species that live in that habitat. Since the turtle environment is large, we defend numerous marine organisms.

Marine turtles, during feeding at the bottom, mix soil and water deposits, thus encouraging the return of nutrients from the sediment of the seabed into seawater, which further enriches it. That it does not exist bioturbation, the precipitated material would disappear from the marine chemical composition. Sea turtles are among the vertebrates that can dive the longest. Most species dive to a depth of 10 to 50 m.
Generally, dives last from 15 minutes to an hour, and they are on the surface only 3 to 6% of the total time.

Marine turtles dive to great depths to find food, lowered body temperature, escaped from predators, or got rid of parasites that cannot withstand such pressure.

What do they eat?
– Caretta caretta — feeds on invertebrates at depths up to 61 m.

– Chelonia mydas — feeds on sea flowers and algae.

– Adult Lepidochelys olivacea — spend their lives swimming along the sea currents where they gather algae and the animals.

– Lepidochelys kempii — feeds on crabs, shellfish, and snails found in shallow coastal areas up to 46 m deep.

– Eretmochelys imbricata — feeds on sponges in coral reefs.

– Natator depressus — feeds on jellyfish, sea feathers, and other invertebrates that inhabit the soft bottoms of coastal water.

– Dermochelys coriacea — feeds on cold seas, chemical energy the resulting food is stored in the form of fat in the subcutaneous adipose tissue. When it caught the prey, comes to the surface to eat it. It feeds on
jellyfish, pyrosomes, and gelatinous zooplankton, for fat accumulation.

The biggest threat to sea turtles is the interaction with humans. Although all species of sea turtles are
protected, they still face accidental catches.

However, some changes in fishing techniques, such as more rounded hooks, shorter time to leave nets in the sea, adequate recovery, and Turtle Excluder Devices, can dramatically reduce mortality rates.

In addition to fishing as one of the threats, a large number of sea turtles die every year from swallowing plastic bags, bottles, and other waste in the water. Floating plastic bags look like jellyfish that are prey to many sea turtles. The development of tourism has also affected nesting sites: light and sound pollution frightens adults and disorients young turtles.

Sea turtles have identified as one of the most endangered groups in the world, and all species are on the
IUCN Red List: Lepidochelys kempii and Eretmochelys imbricata are critically endangered; Chelonia mydas
is endangered; Caretta caretta, Dermochelys coriacea, and a Lepidochelys olivacea are in danger; the balance status of the Natator depressus is unclear due to lack of data. All seven species of sea turtles are in the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).

The turtle spirit animal is often connected with

the water element

The water element is a symbol for persistence. Even small drops of water can, by giving enough time, become an ocean, and that is what the water element symbolizes.

It's the small steps every day that can make a big difference.

For others it may seem like those connected to the water element get things pretty easy, because they only see the final small step, that has been taken upon the long journey of staircases.

"If connected to the water element it may seem like your float through life, but you're actually keeping your balance with tiny constants reactions."

The turtle spirit animal is often connected with

the color green

If your soul or aura has the power of green, you have the power of healing and disease.

Positive energy: Healing

You're able to heal, support and protect others around you.

The essence of your comfort can comfort others, and make them feel safe, protected and even healed, just by your presence.

The green light from within you comes from nature itself, and renaissance within our souls. 

Negative energy: Disease

When you do not thrive, your green light becomes a disease, for yourself and others around you. Toxic people can create more toxic people, and it becomes a dangerous cycle. When you have the power to lift people up, you also have the power to break them. But be very aware of this, diseases are contagious, and will infect your own soul even more.
