In some ways, turtles can’t do much more than live on land.
That’s not to say they’re powerless.
But when it comes to gaining the attention of the public, they’re not doing very well.
In the US, there are currently only about 4,000 species of turtles in captivity, according to the Endangered Species Act.
Turtles in captivity have long been subject to abuse, including being chained, drowned, strangled, electrocuted, and starved.
And, according a 2011 report from the National Institutes of Health, turtles often are denied access to fresh water and nutrients.
Turtles also face serious risks of contracting diseases from the harsh conditions in their enclosures.
But in some ways the turtles themselves are the most vulnerable to the pressures that the oceans are under.
“Turtles are pretty much the only vertebrates that get to go in and do what they do naturally,” said Richard A. Lipschutz, a biologist at the University of Colorado Boulder and author of the book Turtles: The Evolution of a Species.
“But they can’t even do that in captivity.”
Lipschitz said that the turtles are not the only animals to suffer the toll of habitat loss, pollution, disease, and habitat degradation.
The impact of the global crisis on turtles is especially profound.
According to a 2011 study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, more than half of the 1,200 species of birds and mammals that live on Earth are threatened by habitat loss.
In the past decade, the world’s turtles have lost about 60% of their habitats, and many have become critically endangered.
“Turtle populations are going down across the globe,” said Paul O’Connell, a turtle biologist at Arizona State University and the author of The Turtle Economy.
“Turtles, in general, are being affected by a lot of environmental change.”
Turtles can survive on the ocean floor by swimming in shallow water.
But they don’t eat and don’t reproduce, and they have little or no teeth to chew.
Turtle eggs can be eaten by other turtles, which means that the turtle’s diet is likely to be a poor source of food for turtles and other marine life.
Turtle shellfish is not only nutritious for the turtles, but it also is highly nutritious for humans.
But, turtle nesting sites are not always protected.
In some places, turtles and birds may have to be separated for nesting purposes.
And, in the case of the American clam, where nesting is banned because of the threat of climate change, there is currently little or nothing left of nesting sites.
Even though the threat to the turtles and their habitat is real, there’s still hope for their future.
According to a study published last year in the Proceedings of The Royal Society B, there was an increased amount of habitat restoration after the End of the World, and turtles are getting stronger.
Lipson said that conservationists hope to get more turtles back into the wild to help the turtles survive the climate crisis.
