Sea turtle nests at risk from climate change, says study
MetadataShow full item record
Rising sea levels from climate change are a threat to sea turtle populations as eggs laid on beaches become submerged in salt water, Australian scientists said Thursday. Eggs buried by female turtles in usually "high and dry" areas on beaches could be inundated by rising sea levels and storm surges, a study by researchers from Australia's James Cook University said. The green turtle population on Raine Island, which is located on the northern tip of the Great Barrier Reef off Queensland's coast, is also under threat from habitat loss, boats and pollution.
