Hatchlings - CL#2

Sea turtles are extremely vulnerable to climate change due to their unique life history.  Climate change impacts sea turtles in a number of ways:

  • Temperature determines sea turtle gender,
  • Rising seas inundate and destroy nesting beach sites, and
  • Changing ocean current patterns may prevent hatchlings from reaching their critical pelagic habitat they need to reach to survive their first few months and years at sea.
