turtle 1024x576 - Caretta Caretta nidifica sulla costa di Eboli

Mersin, TURKEY: A sea Turtle (Caretta Caretta) swims in the depth of the Mediterranean sea near the Aydincik coast in far - eastern Turkey, 20 August 2005. In Turkey, there are 17 nesting beaches of the globally threatened sea turtle Caretta Caretta. One of the most thrilling underwater encounters is that with a turtle. In nature they have few enemies, limited to a few sharks, like the tiger shark, which is able to break their shell with its extremely strong jaws. Man, on the other hand, has always hunted turtles relentlessly for their meat, shell and oil, which is used in cosmetics as ingredients for creams and medicine to cure lung troubles. They have been hunted to such an extent that today they are considered an endangered species and in serious danger of extinction. In the Red Sea there are several species of the sea turtle, among which the more common are the Caretta Caretta, Green Turtle and the Imbricated Turtle.
