SoCal Sea Turtlesis creating Sea Turtle Conservation and Educational Materials
Hatchling green sea turtles are the size of a cookie, but they can travel hundreds of miles aided only by ocean currents and furious flipper flapping! Southern California's hatchlings are born on the warm beaches of Mexico, then travel all the way up the Pacific coast of Mexico until they reach their adult homes in California!
Juvenile green sea turtles are the size of a dinner plate, and they'll eat pretty much anything they can fit into their mouths! This is the smallest size turtle we see here in Southern California.
