Turtles are the oldest inhabitants of the earth. They have been around for 250 million years. They were here before the dinosaurs and humans. The female turtle lays a hundred eggs in half an hour, on land, in a hole that she scoops out with engineering precision. Once she is done, she carefully covers the eggs with sand to maintain the right temperature for the eggs to hatch and to protect the eggs from predators. And then she walks into the Ocean and swims away never to see her children ever again. From the time the eggs hatch and the baby turtles take their first step on this Universe, they are on their own. They learn to fend for themselves, to swim, to find food and to survive. Turtles live a long life. But now, they just don’t know how to deal with plastic that’s polluting the oceans and killing them slowly. This is one terrible enemy that the turtles have to beat. If turtles are masters of survival, humans are predators of the highest order. I am rooting for the magnificent turtles.
