Turtles live in the sea more than 110 million years ago.
The sea turtle is a vertebrate marine reptile that can live more than 100 years.
There are seven species of sea turtles in the world. In Brazil five of them can be found:
* Green or Arauna/ Chelonia mydas.
* Headdress or Mestiza/ Caretta caretta.
* Leather or giant/ Dermochelys cariocea.
* Comb or legitimate/ Eretmochelys imbricata.
* Oliva/ Lipidochelys olivacea.
They are of great ecological importance because they control the populations of jellyfish, corals, small fish, algae, etc. Part of the food chain is a delicate link that must not be broken in order not to generate on ecological imbalance.
Turtles are at risk of extinction due to diverse natural actions of predators and human actions such as: commercial over fishing, accidental capture, destruction of breeding habitats, rest and feeding, contamination of the seas.
As a result of this reality, the MMDAN ( World Movement of Animal and Nature Defenders) aims to creat a sanctuary for resting, treating, reproducing and reintegrating the species in the middle, thus promoting conservation of the species.
