Why are turtles endangered?
There are roughly between 250 and 300 species of turtles, the
name of the species of turtle would help answer this correctly.
Generally speaking, loss of habitat is one of the largest issues
that turtles face, either on land or in the water. Then add in the
hunting, or fishing of the larger species for their meat, and their
shell, plus the loss of nesting sites. For more details please, see
sites listed below.
