  • Hawksbill's Story

    Hawksbill sea turtles feed almost exclusively on sponges. As the turtles feast the stinging coral burns their faces and they relentlessly reach through it to get to the sponges. Hawksbill turtle meat is poisonous to humans, caused by the sponges’ sharp glass-like spicules with toxic chemical compounds. Although the Hawksbill turtles aren’t harvested for their meat, they still aren’t safe from poachers.  Hawksbill turtles’ shells are considered the most beautiful feature of this astonishing animal, and at the same time, a great threat. Their carapaces are absolutely stunning because of their beautiful colors and their distinctive pattern of overlapping scutes. This has led to Hawksbill’s overfishing in the past. Currently these shells are still coveted on the black market, even though Hawskbills are considered critically endangered on a global level.
