All seven different species of sea turtles are classified as endangered. They suffer from poaching and over-exploitation, and also are slaughtered for their meat, skin, shells, and even their eggs. Climate change has impacted their nesting sites altering sand temperatures, affecting the sex of the hatchlings. Of course, habitat destruction and accidental capture in fishing gear are also major contributors to these wonderful animals being on the endangered species list.
